Readings for the Week

Readings for Sunday, September 12:

Is 50:5-9a: 
Isaiah speaks of his sufferings, but God is his help and he upholds him in misery.

Jas 2:14-18: 
Faith in words is dead; it must carry out into action.  Words alone will not cover the naked or
bring food to the hungry.

Mk 8:27-35:
In answer to Jesus’ question about Himself, Peter acknowledges that Jesus is the Messiah. 
Jesus then tells of His future sufferings, death and resurrection.  To follow Him, we must take up our cross.

Today’s Message:
Isaiah would suffer and call upon the Lord for help.  Jesus speaks of His own suffering
and death and of the demands of discipleship. What use is faith,
