The Character of Christ
As Mark continued to unfold this account of the life of Jesus, he highlighted the character and purpose of Christ through Jesus’ compassion, power, and purpose. Jesus demonstrated His compassion by touching those who were sick and healing them. His power could be seen in the multitude of those He healed and the full restoration He gave them. All of these things pointed to the main purpose for which Jesus came: to preach the gospel and teach about repentance and belief in Himself. May we look to the character of Christ, and have confidence in His power as we seek to continue preaching and teaching the gospel to others.
Scripture: Mark 1:29-45
