This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Search The Scriptures —Study 9 — Mark 4:21-34
Study 9 From The Book of Mark is: Mark 4:21-34
4: 35-41. What were the disciples surprised at in Jesus, and
what was He surprised at in them? What was He both testing and teaching by
leading them into such an experience? Why did this miracle mean more to
them than anything which they had yet seen Jesus do?
5:1-20. Contrast men’s way of treating the demoniac with what
Jesus did for him. In which way is
the power of evil active in my life being dealt with?
Why did the people ‘beg Jesus to depart’ (5:17) and why did
Jesus leave the healed demoniac behind? What may be the best form of
witness in a home or neighbourhood that seems not to want Christ?
4:40. It is significant
that Jesus did not rebuke men used to sailing on the Sea of Galilee for
their failure to bring Him safely through the storm.
5:1-20. This happened in Decapolis, on the
south-east side of the lake, in Gentile territory. The use of the title ‘Most High God’
(verse 7) and the local keeping of swine (verse 11) confirm this.
