Mark - Come Follow Me (part 5)

Will Sohnchen

This morning we continue our series in the Gospel of Mark. We now come to a pivotal part when Jesus finally begins to reveal His true identity to His disciples. He is a King, but He is a King who is going to a cross. If you want to follow this King, you need to come to the cross as well.

We will look at why Jesus had to go to the cross. His purpose can be wrapped up in this simple phrase, ‘For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’ Jesus came to give His life in exchange for ours. How will we respond to this magnanimous gesture? That's what we will consider today.
