God can do all things - Christ in the Bible: Mark’s Gospel

God can do all things


Verses 13-15



Jesus returned from the mountain. He had prayed to God his father there.

The *disciples were not ready for Jesus’ return. They were arguing with other people.

The people were surprised to see Jesus. And they were afraid of him.

Verses 16-27



This boy had a bad *spirit. The *spirit was very cruel. The boy could not hear or speak because of it. And the *spirit often tried to cause the boy’s death.

The boy’s father brought his son to the *disciples. They tried to help the boy, but they failed.

God helps people who believe him. But during Jesus’ life, most people did not believe God. This is still true today. People believe many things. But they do not often want to believe God.

The boy’s father thought that, perhaps, God was not able to help.

Jesus replied that God can do anything. But people must believe him. When Jesus explained this, the boy’s father replied immediately. He wanted to believe.

So Jesus told the *spirit that it must leave the boy. Even then, the *spirit was cruel to the boy. The people even thought that the boy was dead. But the boy was not dead, and the *spirit had left him.

Verses 28-29



The *disciples had told the *spirit that it must leave the boy. But it would not go. And the *disciples did not know why they had failed.

But Jesus had come from the mountain. There he was praying to God his father. He gave himself completely to God, so that he would do God’s work. And it was God’s work to help the boy.

The *disciples needed to give themselves completely to God, too. Then they too would do his work.

The *disciples’ wrong ideas


Verses 30-32



Jesus had to explain this often to his *disciples. But still, they could not understand. They did not want these things to happen to Jesus. So they did not believe that these things would happen.

But they should have learned the things that Jesus was teaching them. Then, when these events happened, they would not be so afraid. They would know that God wanted these things to happen. And they would know that God would make Jesus alive again in the end.

Verses 33-37



The 12 *disciples were not important men. But they still wanted other people to say that they were important. And each *disciple thought that he was more important than the other *disciples.

Jesus taught that those ideas were wrong. One Christian should not try to be more important than another Christian. Instead, each Christian should try to help other people.

A Christian should be like a servant. He should even be like a servant of a little child. When the Christian helps a little child, he is doing Jesus’ work. And it was God who sent Jesus to do that work.

That does not mean that Christians must obey everyone. They must always obey God. And because they obey God, they should help other people.

Verses 38-41



This man saw the things that Jesus was doing. And he decided to do the same things himself. He was not against Jesus. He believed Jesus. And he used Jesus’ authority to tell bad *spirits that they must leave people.

John tried to stop the man. John wanted the man to become a *disciple of Jesus. But Jesus told John that the man was doing God’s work. So the man was helping Jesus and the *disciples. God knew about the things that the man was doing. And God knew about the things that the *disciples were doing, too. He would be kind to everyone who does his work.
