I'm stuck in Mark. I've been reading it since December. This happens to me all the time. I start reading a book of Scripture, and I read it over and over and over again. I did this with Genesis a few years back.
I picked up a study guide to the Gospel of Mark by Ignatius Press. They're coming out with an entire study Bible (it's about time), but until they have it compiled, they have made available what's completed. There are notes, commentaries and a few questions for each chapter.
(W)hen Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "My son, your sins are forgiven." Mk 2:5
The first application question (pertaining to ch. 2:5) is this: Jesus responds to the faith of the paralytic's friends by forgiving the sick man's sins. As you reflect on your own life, how does sin tend to paralyze you spiritually? How does forgiveness of sin heal that paralysis?
What a sign for someone stuck in this Gospel.
If forgiveness of sin can give a paralyzed man the power to walk, what will it do in me, an able-bodied woman confirmed in the Spirit and desiring to walk with the Lord?
