What do you believe in? What are you willing to identify with, trade in your treasures for, glory in, and lay down your life for? Some of you may be treating life as some kind of game or vacation. You know that life has a timeline; there is a starting point and an ending point, so you want to live it to the full while Jesus is only a footnote at the bottom of the pages of your life. What we will discover in Mark 8:34-9:1 is that Jesus does not want to be a footnote at the bottom of the pages of your life, and even refuses such a place.
