Mark chapter 9

The *disciples must love each other

Verses 49-50

A person tastes food to decide whether it needs more salt.

Fire destroys most things, but it does not destroy gold. A person can put metal into a fire to decide whether it is really gold.

God will be the *judge of everyone. He will decide whether a person should go to *heaven or *hell.

So the *disciples must not be like other people. The *disciples should not argue because they want to be important. Instead, they must be like salt. A cook knows quickly whether there is salt in the food. And people will know quickly that the *disciples are Godís people. They will know this if the *disciples love each other (John 13:35).

Next part: Jesus speaks about divorce
