As you pray through the Gospel of Mark, you’ll discover his story is filled with good news and amazing miracles. Mark tells us about Jesus from the perspective of outsiders, those who, like Jesus, suffered rejection and isolation. He wants you to see how Jesus loves you, and desires to fill you and transform your life.
You’ll meet wonderful characters. For example, the father of a boy with epilepsy in Mark 9 who humbly admits his unbelief and cries out for help, and the men in Mark 2 who believe in Jesus enough to want to tear up a roof and lower their friend down on a stretcher for Jesus to heal him.
In the end, their stories are our stories. And only as we become like them will we encounter the goodness and love of Jesus
