Mark #14, How to Approach Jesus

1000 New Beginnings, the Gospel of Mark How to Approach Jesus Mark 7:31-37 Jesus leaves the West Coast (Tyre & Sidon) but sticks to Gentile territory. A deaf, mute man is brought to Jesus by friends, who ask Jesus to say a prayer for his troubled life. Jesus goes one better, but not before he uses sign language to ask the man if he is willing to be healed. Why does Jesus ask permission? How do our attitudes affect what God chooses to do in our lives?
