Mark Application

1) People often say that Mark shows the servant aspect of Jesus` ministry. Although the word servant is only used four times, Mark 10:45 says “did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” How like your Lord are you in that respect? Would others regard you as a servant? Or do they see you as having to be “number one”? What is it to be “number one” in God’s eyes?

2) Jesus talks about discipleship in this Gospel. According to Jesus, what is required of disciples? Can you consider yourself a true disciple of Jesus Christ? Why? Think about Mark 8:34-36 and 10:28-31.

3) Can you say with Peter, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God?” And will you listen to Him, to Jesus, as the Father commands?
