Tweeting Through Mark's Gospel

Introduction: The Gospel of Mark, which is believed to be the earliest of the four Gospels, was written by John Mark, who is believed to have used the Apostle Peter as his primary source. Although Peter may have been his primary source, the Holy Spirit provided him with the divine inspiration to pen his narrative of the life of Christ as the Savior of the world. 

Mark 3:13-19 — Christ's disciples are called to come to Him, chosen to be with Him, and commissioned to go for Him.

Mark 3:24 — An America divided against itself cannot stand. Uncle Sam is being knocked off his feet, not by any external foe, but by infighting and civil unrest.

Mark 7:9-13 — Many a human tradition sets aside divine truth, portraying man’s disobedience to God as religious devotion.

Mark 8:22-25 — Those satisfied with the initial touch of the Savior and unwilling to receive successive ones may have spiritually blurred vision. For instance, they may be incapable of clearly seeing people for the trees.

Mark 9:23-24 — The question is never, “Can Jesus do it?” Instead, the question is always, “Can you believe it?” Furthermore, to believe it, you must pray for Jesus to help you with your unbelief!


Mark 10:17-18 — There is no good but God and apart from God there is no good!


Mark 10:46-52 — When Christ calls us to Himself in response to our crying out to Him in life's most difficult circumstances, we can stand up under them, take courage in them, and expect Christ to deliver us from them.

Mark 10:46-52 — Those who plead for Christ’s mercy will be called to Him and healed by Him of their blindness so that afterward they can see clearly to follow Him.

Mark 11:12-14, 20-21 — The curse of barrenness is the consequence of the sin of barrenness. To escape it requires more than foliage; it requires fruitfulness. To escape Christ’s curse and to ensure ourselves of His blessing requires more than buds and blossoms.

Mark 12:41-44 — The true worth of our offering to God is not how much we give, but how much we have left afterward.

Mark 14:8 — God’s expectations of us never exceed our God-given opportunities and abilities. He expects us to do what we can. Nothing more is expected; nothing less is acceptable.

Mark 15:15 — In order “to content the people” Pilate crucified Christ and by doing so condemned himself. Are you being coerced by the crowd into your own condemnation?

Mark 15:15 — Are you willing to forfeit your immortal soul by condemning Christ and all things Christian in order to curry favor with today’s politically correct crowd?

Mark 15:15 — Does public opinion dictate to you your personal opinion of Christ?

Mark 15:15 — Are you more concerned with fitting in with the crowd than you are with the fate of your immortal soul?

Mark 15:15 — Is appeasing the crowd more important to you than your acceptance of Christ and Christ’s acceptance of you?
