December 28, 2014 – Morning Worship

MondayMark 8:1-21

What is Jesus doing here and who is he doing it for? How might that encourage us today? This coming year?

TuesdayPsalm 75:1; Mark 6:30-44

Notice the many repetitions between the two different crowd-feeding episodes. Why did Jesus do that and why does Mark repeat it? What is so important about it?

WednesdayIsaiah 61; Ezekiel 12:1-6

What is the significance of having eyes and not seeing? Why is Jesus so concerned about this for his disciples? What did they need to understand about Jesus (see Mark 8:27-31)? How can we “understand” this and live according to it?

ThursdayLuke 12:1-7; 1 Corinthians 5:1–8; Gal. 5:9

What is the “leaven of the Pharisees” and how can we “beware” of it? How can we as a church apply this in the coming year? You personally?

FridayMark 8:18; Revelation 3:1-8

Forgetting is a constant danger to God’s people. What is it that we must remember, and why (v. 3)?

SaturdayMark 8:1-21

In what ways are you slow to understand and believe what Jesus is doing in the world and in you? How might this passage both challenge and comfort us this coming year?
