Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Mark 1:1-45
  3. In the first chapter of Mark’s Gospel, he begins at the start of Jesus’ public ministry as a grown Man.  Scan through the chapter and review some of Jesus’ “Greatest Hits” in this section.  What do they tell you about the person of Jesus Christ?  Why do you think Mark began His Gospel here?
  4. It is impossible for you to save yourself.  But what is impossible for men and women is TOTALLY POSSIBLE for God!  Like Mary, are you trusting in God alone for your salvation?  If you are not trusting in Christ, what is preventing you from doing so today?
  5. What are some of the “costs” you have experienced by following Christ?  Have you ever wanted to distance from Christ because of what the “cost” of standing with Him would be?  What does the example of Joseph teach you?  Where are you tempted to turn away from Christ today out of fear of the consequences?
  6. How are you communicating to others in your circle of influence the greatness of Jesus Christ?  Who would God have you reach out to this Christmas season and invite them to come to Church with you to remember the greatness of Jesus?
  7. Think of the year in front of you (2023).  What are some specific ways you can follow Jesus more closely in the year ahead?  
  8. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
