Love in Action: The Promises of God in the Book of MARK
God has identified with us in our humanity through the humility and servanthood of the incarnation. Christ experienced the conditions of human limitations including his encounters with the temptations we face (1:12; 14:32-41).
Jesus offers the glorious gift of the forgiveness of sins (2:1-12) so that we can be cleansed and lifted up into a relationship with him.
When we lose our lives for Christ’s sake, we find our lives for the first time (8:34-37).
By God’s grace, we have the inestimable privilege of knowing true greatness by following our Lord in the path of servanthood to others (10:42-45).
