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!

Study 22 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 10:32-52
1.Verses 32-34, 45. What new
aspects of His sufferings does Jesus introduce here? Cf. 9:31. Why does He
continue to stress this subject? Why were His disciples amazed and afraid, and
what ought we to be?
2.What motives do you think were
behind the request of James and John, and what was the meaning of Christ’s
reply to then? Do our own aims in life also reveal the same spiritual
shallowness? What is the governing principle of true Christian greatness?
3.What were the progressive steps
which led Bartimaeus to the recovery of his sight? What can we learn from this incident that
will both guide and encourage us when trying to help those who are spiritually
blind to find their way to Christ.
Note. Verse 28. The terms ‘baptism’ and ‘cup’ are
sometimes used symbolically in Scripture to denote suffering which has to be
endured. In this passage they are forceful
reminders of the cost of following Christ.
Cf. Lk. 12:50; Mk. 14:36.
