The action in the first chapter of Mark illustrates the author's desire to reach the Romans with the strength and authority of Jesus as the Son of God. This week, Pastor Marlin highlights verses in the first chapter and challenges us with a few pointed questions. NOTE: The audio file will be uploaded after 1:00 PM CST. You can join our Facebook Live presentation at 11:00 AM to watch the service.



  • Are you a busy person?
  • Does your busyness cause you to be weary?
  • We are a tired and exhausted people!
  • “I was so tired, that I …”

The action of Mark’s first chapter:

    • v. 9-11 Being baptized (the Spirit and the Voice)
    • v. 12-13 Being tempted (Spirit, Satan, wild animals, angels)
    • v. 14-15 Proclaiming the message (Kingdom, repentance, belief)
    • v. 16-20 Calling disciples (Simon, Andrew, John, James)
    • v. 21-28 Teaching and driving out evil spirits (Authority!)
    • v. 29-34 Healing diseases and driving out evil spirits
    • v. 40-45 Healing a leper
    • v. 35-39 Praying alone

Question – What do you think Mark wants from his readers?

Question – If you knew nothing about Jesus, what could you learn about Him from Mark’s first chapter?
