It Shall Not Be So Among You

Three times in the last three chapters (8-10) of Mark's account Jesus teaches His followers about His impending suffering, and all three times His followers seem to be too concerned about their own status to even notice what He's saying.

Who am I to ever make a judgement on what type of people are fit or unfit to receive the gospel and the inheritance of the Holy Spirit? With deep roots as God's chosen people, I can understand why the Jewish people wrestled a little bit with the initial inclusion of the Gentiles, but it was made clear that God will show mercy to whomever He decides to show mercy - Jew or Gentile. Therefore, we are to preach without any prejudice.
