Then they departed from there and passed through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know it.
– Mark 9:30
In chapter 8 He sent away a great multitude, and now He doesn’t want anyone to know that He is passing through Galilee. Jesus didn’t allow the short-term trappings of ‘success’ to get in the way of the greater mission. Again, this is challenging and instructive. I’m sure there have been more than a few of Christ’s ministers that have been snared by success and missed the larger mission.
