SERMON SERIES: The Gospel of Mark

SERMON TITLE: Jesus: The Call, Part 2 (Mark 1:40-45)


This week, Pastor David continued The Gospel of Mark sermon series with a look at Jesus and the leper.

  • Think of a time when you have felt left out and/or ostracized. What was the hardest thing about that time?
  • What can you learn about prayer from the leper’s request to Jesus?
  • According to Mark 1:42, the leper was made “clean.” How is that different and/or better than being made “well?"
  • Pastor David highlighted that Jesus became one of us. He took on our sinfulness to redeem us. He did this because he is crazy about you. How does this truth impact your spiritual journey?

And a leper came to him, imploring him and kneeling said to him, "If you will, you can make me clean." Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, "I will; be clean." And immediately, the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. And Jesus sternly charged him and said to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to them." But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in desolate places, and people were coming to him from every quarter.
