Mark 9 - The Secret Kingdom
When Jesus began using parables to teach about God's kingdom most people were left confused, in fact Jesus was making it more difficult to learn and understand the truth of God's kingdom. There was a certain secrecy around the whole thing, such that it would leave you wondering if God really cared and really wanted us to know Him and the truths of his kingdom. But Mark makes it clear that the answers are available to anyone who would humble themselves enough to seek the answers to their questions. If we are willing to press into the things we don't understand we will find the answers and the secrets of God's kingdom will be given to us. God's desire is that you would know Him and that you would be a part of his kingdom.
