Mark 8:1-21

COMPASSIONATE HEART
  • Mark 8:1-10

  • Application #1 | How are you actively exercising your heart of faith by remembering God’s past faithfulness?
RESISTANT HEART
  • Mark 8:11-13
  • The Pharisees demand a sign from Jesus. They accuse Jesus of not clearly communicating he is the Messiah when in reality their hearts are turned away from Jesus in rebellion.
  • Application #2 | What is the posture of your heart toward God?
DISTRACTED HEART
  • Mark 8:14-21
  • Jesus is teaching a spiritual lesson but the disciples are overwhelmed and distracted by their physical need.
  • Application #3 | What do I need to remember of God’s faithfulness? What do I need to understand from God’s past faithfulness for my present need?
    • Monument of Remembrance
