(Mark 10:1-12) Marriage is a sacred union established by God, intended to glorify God. Marriage is the venue where God grows His people in their understanding of His unbreakable love as they express that covenantal love one to another through their spiritual, physical, and emotional intimacy throughout their entire lives.
(Mark 9:41-50) Discipleship cannot be compartmentalized or limited. It flows into and makes demands on every area of the disciple’s life. Trusting and following Jesus impacts everything.
In Mark 9:38-41, Jesus teaches his disciples two things. First, to practice discernment in their interactions with others that are claiming to do Christian work. And second, to demonstrate humility in that discernment knowing that all kingdom work done in the name of Jesus is done to make much of King Jesus! Take the time to study this passage with us this week and ask Jesus to be your Truthful Teacher!
(Mark 9:30-37) Christian Discipleship is NOT about you and me, it’s about our lives exalting Jesus and honoring God. Both of which will only take place when we die to ourselves and humbly and sacrificially give our lives away for the sake of others expecting nothing in return.
(Mark 9:14-29) Why do Christians struggle to trust in the power sufficiency of Christ? Much of the time it is because we live life out of our own abilities instead of looking to the only One Who is able! Looking unto Jesus, the Chief and End [or object] of our faith and asking Him for HELP, is how we overcome doubt and deal with unbelief.
(Mark 9:2-13) Perfect faith and moral righteousness is impossible for us and if you wait for that, you’ll never come into the presence of God – and experience Jesus! All Jesus requires is that you admit you’re NOT RIGHTEOUS and that you NEED HELP! And when you say that, you are approaching God in worship!
(Mark 8:29-9:1) Our Creator God is a healing God and this is perfectly exemplified in the person and work of Jesus Christ. During this short five week series, we’ll witness Jesus providing physical healing for some, but preparing to provide freedom, redemption and forever healing and restoration for all who place their trust in Him.
There is an already and a not yet of the gospel. Jesus lived a perfect life in the place of your imperfection, died a sinners death that we deserved, and rose to life securing new life and forgiveness of sin and the confidence of spending eternity with Christ forever. And here we are; having the work of Christ already accomplished on our behalf, and yet we are wrestling with the sin and struggles in our lives. And in the midst of the our pain and struggle, Jesus is the Christ, and he alone has the power to clean our mess.
