Our goal this summer is two-fold; 1) read the second eight chapters of the Gospel of Mark in very short sections and then 2) read the second eight chapters of the Gospel of Mark in longer sections to discern the overarching themes. During each reading, pause to ask what the Holy Spirit is saying to you about the purpose of Jesus.
You might want to ask how the text relates to your life today. You could ask what the text tells you about the character of God. You will want to ask how this text will change my life; i.e., my attitude, my perspective, my feelings, my compassion, my relationship with Jesus.
Find a Bible (or Bible app) with a translation that reads easy and is understandable to you. Then, read, study, pray, and listen to what Jesus has to say to you.
