Mark’s understanding of Christina Discipleship, is that it involves self-denial and willingness to sacrifice
oneself for the sake of Jesus. Anything less than complete devotion to Jesus is wrong. In Mark chapter 8,
Jesus tells the disciples that for them to follow him truly and be saved, they would need to lose
themselves and who they think they are. Meaning, they would need to give up their pride and ego, to truly
follow in Jesus's footsteps. Additionally, in Mark chapter 4, the discipleship is told that they will risk
persecution from the Jews and Romans, but to be a true disciple and follower of Jesus, this is a risk you
have to take, because a disciple's life now belongs to God.
