January 9, 2022 Preacher: Stephen Conley Series: The Gospel of Mark

Topic: Discipleship Scripture: Mark 8:34–8:38

Text:  Mark 8:34-38


Self-Denial vs. Self-Worship

  • We are called to leave ourselves behind and worship Christ alone.
  • We don’t merely add Jesus to our life. He becomes our life!


Cross-Bearing vs. Comfort Seeking

  • We are called to join Christ on the way to the cross.
  • We are not called to life a comfort and ease in this life.


Seeking Eternal Gain vs. Suffering Eternal Loss

  • We must turn our eyes away from gaining this world and being ashamed of Christ and His Words. This is eternal loss!
  • We must seek the surpassing worth of knowing Christ and believing His Word. This is eternal gain!
