Jesus bore hunger and insult for us

Can you endure hunger and insult for Jesus?

"Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat.

When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”
(Mark 3:20-21 NLT)

Do Good Save Life Even On Sunday

What is God's intention for the commandment, "Keep holy the Sabbath" (Exodus 20:8; Deuteronomy 5:12)?

"They watched Jesus closely
to see if he would cure him on the Sabbath so that they might accuse him." (Mark 3:2 NABRE)

"Then he turned to his critics and asked, “Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” But they wouldn’t answer him."
(Mark 3:4 NLT)

"Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath."  (Mark 2:27 NLT)

Consider the discipline of fasting

How and when do you fast?

"Once when John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting, some people came to Jesus and asked, “Why don’t your disciples fast like John’s disciples and the Pharisees do?”
(Mark 2:18 NLT)

“And when you fast, don’t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I tell you the truth, that is the only reward they will ever get."
(Matthew 6:16 NLT)

There is a time to fast and a time to feast.
