Mark 8:34-9:1

The first requirement of following the servant king

Commitment

I want to tell you about three remarkable people.

 

Johnny Fulton was run over by a car at age three. He suffered Crushed hips, broken ribs, a fractured skull, and compound fractures in his legs. Doctors doubted he would survive. But he would not give up. When he grew up, he ran the half-mile in less than two-minutes.
