How are you doing this week in battling pride and pursuing humility? We looked at Mark 9:38-41 on Sunday and learned from the discussion between Jesus and His disciples that we must not be ruled by a spirit of jealous rivalry. Let's pray this week for a right perspective, one that holds Christ, His name, His mission and His message as preeminent. It's really not about us. If you would like to listen to audio from this last week you can do so here.
This week we will be looking at Mark 9:42-50. I encourage you to read and reflect on this text in preparation for this coming Sunday. Please pray for me as I study and pray for our church body as a whole to be impacted by the truth. I also encourage you to pray for the unbelievers who will be there Sunday, as there is a clear warning of judgment in this passage that must be heeded.
