Mark: Ashamed? Of What?

Jesus is calling His disciples to follow Him down an unpopular road. In this pivotal passage from Mark He gives them reasons to NOT be ashamed of Him and His gospel. Powerful reasons.

Philippians 2:5-11
2 Thessalonians 1:3-12
Mark 8:27-38
2 Timothy 1:6-8,1:16-18,1:12
1 Peter 4:3-5
Romans 6:21,1:16
Hebrews 2:11,11:16

Sermon discussion questions for parents to use with their children:

  • When do you feel the pressure to be ashamed of Christ or the gospel?

  • What reasons does Jesus give to help us overcome this pressure?

  • What if you have failed in this area in the past... is this a one and done?

  • How did Paul try to encourage Timothy in all of this?
