The disciples failed to understand Jesus’ plan of salvation.

Scripture: Mark 9:30-37

ESV Text: Mark 9:30-37


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 9 30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it. 31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day. 32 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him. 33 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way? 34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest. 35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, 37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.(KJV)



Hymn: TLH 384:
Oh, How Great is Thy Compassion

— Organ Audio

1. Oh, how great is Thy compassion, 
Faithful Father, God of grace, 
That with all our fallen race 
And in our deep degradation 
Thou wast merciful that we 
Might be saved eternally! 

2. Thy great love for this hath striven 
That we may from sin be free 
And forever live with Thee; 
Yea, Thy Son Himself hath given 
And extends an earnest call 
To His Supper unto all. 

3. And for this our soul’s salvation 
Voucheth Thy good Spirit, Lord, 
In Thy Sacraments and Word. 
He imparts true consolation, 
Granteth us the gift of faith 
That we fear nor hell nor death. 

4. Lord, Thy mercy will not leave me,- 
Truth doth evermore abide,- 
Then in Thee I will confide. 
Since Thy Word cannot decive me, 
My salvation is to me 
Well assured eternally. 

5. I will praise Thy great compassion, 
Faithful Father, God of grace, 
That with all our fallen race 
And in our deep degradation 
Thou wast merciful that we 
Might bring endless praise to Thee.
