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 29 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 14:1-25
1.Verses 1-9. What some said
about the value of the ointment and the need of the poor was perfectly true.
Why then did Jesus commend Mary for her extravagance? What does this incident
teach us about right priorities in Christian service?
2.Verses 10-21. What do these
verses suggest was the motive which lay behind Judas’ act of betrayal? Is our
own attitude one of condemnation, or are we prepared to share the solemn heart
searching of verse 19?
3.Verses 22-25. Consider use here
of the words ‘bread’, ‘blood’, ‘my’, ‘gave’, ‘take’, ‘drank’, ‘covenant’. What
light do they throw on the nature and method of salvation? Cf. 1 Pet. 1:18, 19.
1.Verses 8-9. Note Jesus’
remarkable prediction of the future world-wide preaching of the ‘gospel’; Cf.
13:10. There was in the woman’s action a recognition both of the unique Person
and of the impending work of Jesus; and these are both essential gospel
2.Verse 22. The expression ‘This
is my body’ corresponds to the Passover formula, ‘This is the bread of
affliction which our fathers ate in the land of affliction’. It indicates a
symbolical commemoration, not an actual ‘transubstantiation’.
