Easter
What is Easter?

We are celebrating Easter today; the Eastern churches celebrate it next week. Easter is a time filled with traditions, some which are religious, some family focused and other culturally based. What does Easter mean to you? We are going to think about Easter today from the Bible and seek to be reminded why Easter is so important...

Mark 4

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Can You Here Me Now?

Can you hear me now? Jesus calls us to really hear what he has to say about who he is and what he came to do. True hearing results in following Jesus all the way and produces fruit in our lives that only God can bring about. So will you truly listen?

Mark 3

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
True Family

Family was a huge part of Judaism. Many of the commandments focused on the family relationship and the need for a strong family. Jesus came to re-establish God’s original intent and demolish the trappings that the religions leaders of His day had set up. Family was important to Jesus, but not at the sacrifice of obeying God. Is family more important to you than God?

Mark 3

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Friends and Foes

The time has come, as Jesus ministry expands, to select some helpers. He is surrounded by enemies and needy people and needs some that He can trust and task assignments too. He demonstrates for us some warning signs as well as principles on who to partner with…

Mark 2

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Feasting and Fasting

Tax season is upon us soon, and no one likes to pay them! There is nothing new as Solomon reminds us in Ecclesiastes and the tax collectors of Jesus day were even more hated than the Internal Revenue Service is today. Jesus runs head first into controversy by befriending one of the ancient IRS agents…

Mark 2

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Forgiveness vs. Paralysis

One of the most unique miracles happens in this section of scripture. 4 friends bring a paralyzed friend to Jesus for healing, while Jesus is being examined by the scribes. Jesus confronts the real problem of the man—sin before dealing with the perceived problem—not being able to walk. God has called us to deal with the real problems of people, so are we? Have we experienced God’s forgiveness? Or are we paralyzed in fear and religion?

Mark 1

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Weariness in Ministry

Jesus ministry rapidly takes off and He is quickly inundated with people needing help. In some ways His initial success would be something to envy, but He did not let it go to His head. He knew people and knew how fickle they are. He Himself had His limits and we see Him needing to spend time with the Father…

Mark 1

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Powerful Start to Ministry

Mark jumps right into the ministry of Jesus by describing an incident with Jesus in the synagogue at Capernaum, his adopted hometown. Right away we see the cosmic battle displayed in a skirmish between God and the evil one. Jesus demonstrates to His new disciples that He was no ordinary Rabbi and that they were on the beginning of a wild ministry ride together…Jesus is still radically changing lives…

Mark 1

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Fishers of Men

The beginning of Jesus ministry finds Jesus in an unlikely location with unlikely followers preaching an unappealing message. Mark leaves more questions unanswered, but perhaps that is the point. Jesus was not what was expected, the perfect savior for a people experiencing unexpected persecution.

Mark 1

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Jesus’ Baptism & Temptation

Mark jumps right into the life of Jesus and the ongoing cosmic battle between God and Satan as he begins the gospel. Right away we are confronted with the servant motif. We also see that suffering and persecution are not foreign to Jesus and that He is triumphant.

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Introduction

We begin looking at the Gospel of Mark today. This is the smallest of the 4 gospels and some say the oldest. It is filled with very descriptive accounts in Jesus life and presents the story in a very rich narrative fashion. The heart of the gospel is Jesus as servant. Jesus actions highlight His love and care for us, and serve as a model for how we should live our lives…

Hebrews 13

Hebrews
Final remarks: Stay True

As we wrap up our study in Hebrews, there are some great concluding commands given that we would be encouraged to learn from. All of these grow from the instruction that Jesus is better than what we have left behind. In Christ we are to look ahead and not dwell on what is behind. We are expected to live with eternity in view, so do we?

Hebrews 12

Hebrews
What are we living for?

The writer uses another analogy to describe the importance of living for God. He presents it in such a way that we are either living for Him or we are living in fear. Most of the world lives in tremendous fear, and too often we in the church follow suite. God is not to be feared but adored and worshipped. He loves us and has made a way for us to come to Him…

Hebrews 12

Hebrews
Running the Good Race

Like the Apostle Paul, the writer to the Hebrews draws from a sports analogy to bring home his point about living lives of faith and being faithful. The setting is one in a stadium where a running event is being staged. The audience is described; the runner and the judge are pictured. The race itself is the life we are called to live. The length is not given, perhaps because all of our races are different, but faithfulness is the key, are we faithful to the race we have been called to live?

Hebrews 11

Hebrews
Faith (Joshua to the NT): Am I willing to give All?

The writer concludes this great roll call of faith with a number of examples of those who gave freely and gave all to God. Faith does this, it makes us act in unconventional ways. It requires the pragmatic to take a hike and live in a way that we rely completely on God. Do we live by faith or is it foreign to us?
