Gathering Around Jesus

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 2.
Mark wrote that Jesus entered a home in Capernaum (Mark 2:1), and when people found out about it, they went there, “Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them” (v. 2). Why did the people go to Jesus? Regardless of what they wanted from Him, He taught them. Some may have shown up because He was famous. They just wanted to get a glimpse of this “celebrity.” Yet, He did not take advantage of the situation to build himself up, but He sought to minister to people, primarily by teaching them.
Jesus wants to teach you. Do you have a mind that is ready to be taught?
