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.
 



I Thank You

Standing before the tomb of Lazarus, Jesus stops to tell the Father how thankful He is. The things that Jesus is thankful for are things that we should still be thankful for today.

God Is Good

God IS good and therefore we can ultimately trust him. However, humanity has always faced the challenged of believing God’s way is the best and not trying to make life work on our terms. That is true in the story of Genesis and remains our challenge today.




Who Knows?

Prayers of thankfulness usually include things we consider to be blessings, or a the very least things that we consider to be positive. We do not often consider being kept in the dark to be a good thing. In Matthew 11, Jesus thanks God for His way of hiding and revealing, reminding us to trust that God is in control. That’s something to be thankful for.
 



I Have Prayed For You

It is so comforting when someone says, “I have prayed for you.” Jesus prays frequently in the New Testament, but He only says those words once. There are great things to learn from His prayer for Peter.
