Passage: Mark 8:31–38

Meeting Jesus in Mark

Mark 8:31-38 – The Gospel of Following Jesus


  1. Identify with the matchless Savior. Mark 8:31-32a

 A. The Savior’s cross shapes the Christian life. Mark 8:31

B. The Savior’s Cross shaped the Savior’s life. Mark 8:32


  1. Intend yourself last place to follow the majestic Lord.


What is self? The personal impulse that craves what it wants, when it wants, and how it wants anything more than Jesus.

 A. Culture calls you to put yourself first. 2 Timothy 3:1-2

 B. Christ calls you to put yourself last. Mark 8:32-38


            What does this look like? What is involved?


                        *Confront yourself.                       8:32-33

                        *Crucify self.                                 8:34-35

                        *Count the cost to yourself.          8:36-38
