The Mark Study
Curses and Lies
We continue reading in Mark 14:50. "Then everyone deserted him and fled..."
What did they all do to Jesus?
Have you ever been left alone?
We see people like that all the time. Do you think there is anyone who feels like this today...
Jesus understands what it is like to be all alone. He cares. That's good news!
Verses 56-57. "Many testified falsely against him..."
Has anyone ever lied about you?
Verse 65. "Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists..."
Has anyone ever abused you? Spit on you? Hit you?
Verse 71. Peter cursed and swore, "I do not know this man..."
Have you ever had anyone deny you? Has anyone been told today, "I don't love you anymore!"
Skip down to chapter 15 now, to Mark 15:20.
"And when they had mocked him..."
Now read verse 34.
None of us will ever be forsaken by God, but Jesus had to be in order to save us. Do you think there is anyone today who believes they have been forsaken by God?
Jesus understands and cares!!!
