When a book is written about someone considered a “world changer,” a book about a great warrior; a great world or national leader, many times the virtues outshine the weaknesses or defects. The Gospels, as well as the rest of the Bible, is not like that! Mark himself writes about his cowardice in the face of danger! (Mark 14:51-52) and Acts 13:13 & Acts 15:37-41 tell us about Mark’s failures. Amazingly with all of these massive failures, Mark did not allow his failures to define his life!! (2 Tim 4:11) What an encouraging word for us, that no matter how many times we fail, with God’s grace and mercy, we can become all that He desires us to become!
DON’T ALLOW YOUR FAILURES TO DEFINE YOUR LIFE!
