Discussion for Mark 11

  • A disciple
    (22-26) All my zeal and determined perseverance cannot manufacture a form or method with which to make God do for me. If we see certain prayers seemingly not heard over a long time; we have to examine ourselves by this that the Lord told us; "Believe that you receive, and you shall have," and to really know confidently the Lord's love and ability with that "whatsoever" we may have to ask Him for.
  • Brianna vs. 25
    Perhaps you have wondered why we must forgive others. We may be unaware, but we all offend God someway somehow every day of our lives. The Bible says to treat others the way we want to be treated. Therefore, if we can forgive others then God has a basis to forgive us, and thus applying the Ransom sacrifice of Jesus to us.

    Disciple - Jn. 21:25; " ..... if they should be written ..... "
  • A disciple
    Truly, for all the books that ought to be written, about all that Jesus said and did, the world itself isn't big enough to contain them! Two examples in point: first, that the Lord teaches all those whom He sends on His errands, just what they will meet with, and how to answer; secondly, that He, our King, rides upon an ass, a beast of service and toil, and smarter, than the horse of a conqueror.
