It was dangerous business that Jesus was up to when he went up a mountain and appointed twelve men as his apostles. The new community, the renewed Israel with Christ Jesus at its center, would be extremely controversial! (In fact, it still is!) These twelve men were hand-picked - although also very ordinary - and men in whom he took delight. Do you…
 
Do you ever feel like your heart is hard? Shallow? Full of stuff you don't want? No matter how hard, how shallow or stony, how prickly or how stunted we may be (or feel), God is freely scattering and sowing the seed of the Good News of Jesus Christ into us. He intends this Good News to be fruitful, and He is committed to a fruitful harvest. So how …
 
The home is packed full of people gathered to Jesus, listening to His teaching. But is Jesus out of His mind? His mom and siblings are convinced that he is, and they've come to do something about it. Jesus' response is more than a little bit shocking! It's also an invitation to each of us to become part of his family, and he even tells us how to do…
 
In Mark 3 Jesus is accused by religious leaders of being in league with the devil. Jesus responds to them face-to-face, and asks, "How can a divided kingdom stand?" He claims to be powerfully plundering the devil, not partnering with his domain. Is Jesus still plundering the kingdom of darkness today? Yes, and he is still bringing freedom to us!…
 
What purpose might Jesus have in calling us to withdraw with him? When Jesus withdraws with his disciples by the sea, a massive crowd gathers to him, coming from not only from Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem, but from the non-Jewish culture of Tyre and Sidon, from Idumea in the south, and from Trans-Jordan to the east. They come with needs, and they …
 
You can almost taste the tension in the synagogue on this particular Sabbath. A man with a real struggle, a debilitating issue, is there, but so are the hard-hearted legalists who are watching in order to trap Jesus. The story begins with a man in the worship gathering who has a "withered" hand. Will Jesus act according to their traditional Rabbini…
 
Do you enjoy Jesus? Is that even okay to ask? What happens when we substitute spiritual disciplines for relationship with Jesus? When he is asked a question about why his disciples don't fast, Jesus responds, "No one fasts while the bridegroom is with them." Discover how Jesus uses three common life examples to establish our spiritual disciplines o…
 
Who are the kind of people we would like to see follow Jesus? Now, think about this: who is Jesus actually calling to himself? Jesus calls to sinners, choosing even those society despises! In a culture torn through sinfulness of all kinds, Jesus calls both to people just like "us", and to people who are also very different to us, inviting us all to…
 
Is Jesus really accessible? Can He really forgive our sins and change our lives? When Jesus comes back to Capernaum and spends time teaching in the home where He is living, we see just how accessible He really is. Crowds fill the placee to overflowing, and four men show up at this impromptu meeting, bringing their friend who is paralyzed. They lite…
 
During the Covid-19 pandemic a sense of being "untouchable" quickly permeated much of global culture, which brings up an important question. How does Jesus engage with the "untouchable"? In Mark 1:40-45 a man comes to him with a potentially contagious disease, and Jesus counter-culturally, physically touches him! A guy rejected by society, that the…
 
We all desire to see God move in power. A good theology of His power is important - (The gates of hell cannot prevail against what he is building!) - but experiencing it tangibly in our lives is too! In Mark 1:29-39 we see Jesus moving in power in the lives of real people, bringing healing and setting people free from demonic oppression. He is movi…
 
Jesus has just heard the voice of his Father declaring, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased," and the Spirit of God has just descended upon him. It's time to step into powerful ministry, right? Wrong! It's time for a 40-day quarantine, and the Spirit "drives" Jesus into the wilderness. He will pass every test! God is teaching us abo…
 
Mark's gospel is a fast-paced, action-oriented introduction to Jesus! Who is Jesus? Mark tells us right away, and then sets out to demonstrate it through his account. Jesus' disciple Peter is behind the writing of this shortest of the four gospels, and in our introduction, we see the way Peter would have taught the story of Jesus' baptism, and Heav…
 
Jesus was alive! The shock must have been stunningly heart-pounding. This would change absolutely everything, beginning with their hearts, and then affecting their entire lives. Jesus' resurrection from the dead is still changing hearts and lives almost 2,000 years later, awakening hearts, changing our heading, and filling us with a radical hope of…
