"In Mark’s writing, we see a very clear picture of Jesus that gives us hope for today. We see God who is all powerful—more than able to save us, sustain us, and preserve us. But he’s not just a powerful God. In Jesus, we see a clear picture of God who is for us—who humbled himself to become one of us, suffered for our sin and wickedness. He knows our struggles and our weaknesses. And yet, He still chooses to love us steadfastly. To me, this is the gospel, indeed, the good news that Mark proclaims to us about Jesus Christ,
the Son of God."
