Life Group Questions for THE GOSPEL OF MARK

Go ahead and try it again. These might be the best words you'll hear on a Tee Box right after you sliced your ball into the next county. I know from experience. Golf is pretty serious. Well, for most people it's pretty serious. I get it. It's an opportunity to dedicate and discipline yourself to a game of patience and precision. It's good exercise and good fellowship as well. But sometimes it doesn't go the way you want it. Most holes are sprinkled with good shots and bad shots and somewhere in between shots. Every hole has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Then you get to try again on the next hole. It's a series of do overs that are designed to improve your play with each stroke and each hole. Depending on who you're golfing with, you may even be given a 'Mulligan' or two along the way. A mulligan is a gracious do over when you absolutely destroy your shot and essentially can't play that ball. You need help. You need a fresh start. You need a do over. Not every golf partner or golf game uses mulligans. I get it. But I do. It makes the game playable and doable and enjoyable while still instilling in you a desire to do better on your next shot. It's the same in life when you're living for God. Most days are filled with good shots, bad shots, and somewhere in between shots. And God has provided His grace for the mulligans along the way. Today, let's take another shot. Go ahead and try again. His grace is sufficient for your needs. Step up to the Tee Box and do the next right thing.

1) In Mark 3 we saw Jesus choose His 12 Apostles to be with Him and preach the Word. This is how every relationship with God starts. He chooses us to be with Him. And then we are changed and commissioned. Often though, many Chrisitians continue their relationship with God only focusing on the 'change me' part and don't really focus on the 'commision me' part. How is God changing you right now? Character, maturity, fruit. How is God commissioning you right to be His witness and serve the hurting people around you? 

2) When Jesus was serving the masses in Mark 3 He got so busy that He didn't have time to eat. In John 4 Jesus told the disciples that His meat was to do the will of Him who sent Him. Read John 4:32-34. How does serving God fill us up? Have you ever given out to the Lord or others and found yourself full and satisfied? 

3) As Mark listed the names of the Apostles he included some of the nicknames that Jesus gave to them. For Simon, Jesus renamed him Peter which means rock. Rock sure is strong! But we all know Peter's beginning was more rocky  than it was solid. But Peter kept his eyes on Jesus. How does Peter's story encourage you? What does it say about Jesus who knew Peter's mistakes as well as his potential? 



Today is a new day. 

God bless you!
