Mark has just related Jesus’ words to Peter: You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s! This leaves the reader with a most important question: What will it look like if I do set my mind on the interests of God and not my own? The answer is given clearly and plainly in our text today and qualifies as the most simple and direct definition of real discipleship.We will see that "discipleship" is not an optional "add-on" to being a Christ-follower. Rather, it is really what it means to follow Christ! To follow Christ is to desire more and more to give over mastery of my life to Christ and to increasingly and consistently grow in my likeness to Christ and partnership in His mission.
