What Is Clean?

In Mark 7, a question about tradition gives Jesus the opportunity to teach about the need for clean and pure hearts.
 



Hard Times

Before sending His disciples out two by two, Jesus prepares them for the difficulties ahead. Each of us will face hard times, but God will equip us and guide us through them.

Forever Changed

At the end of Mark 4, Jesus leaves the crowd and heads across the lake. After stilling the storm He comes to the other side only to be immediately confronted by a demon possessed man. After his encounter with Jesus, the man is forever changed and cannot wait tell others about it. Will we tell others what Jesus has done for us?
 



Storms

Even though the experienced fishermen on the boat are fearful because of the storm, Jesus is sleeping peacefully. He knows that His power is greater than the storm, and He wants us to trust that His power is greater than our storms.
 



United

Many of the people who encountered Jesus in Mark 3 had their minds made up about Him beforehand. Those who met Him with a willingness to learn had their lives changed. What are you looking for when you encounter Jesus?
 



Not What They Expected

Throughout Mark 2 the people who encountered Jesus saw him do unexpected things for unexpected people at unexpected times. This was a challenge for them. Sometimes we can still be challenged when God does not take the action we expect. We should learn to trust Him because He understands what we need.
 



As One With Authority

Encountering Jesus is life changing. In Mark 1, Jesus heals, frees people from demons, makes them spiritually clean and changes their paths in life. He still changes lives. Will you let Him change yours?

Straight Paths

This week we begin a new series on the Gospel of Mark. Unlike the other gospels, Mark jumps right into the story of Jesus. Mark has an urgency about telling the story. We should have that same urgency to tell His story today.
 



Who Is My Neighbor?

Our Youth & Family Minister, Thorin Turner, shares this lesson from Luke 10. We, like the lawyer, often wonder who our neighbor is that we are to love as ourselves. Jesus calls those who would follow him and seek eternal life to instead be a neighbor in all situations, loving the other with all that you have just as you would love God with all that you have.
 



Prayers from the Cross

Since prayer is a regular practice of Jesus throughout His life, it should come as no surprise that it is a significant part of what He says from the cross. His three prayers from the cross should serve as examples to us.
