Mark 6:30-56

We must continually come to Jesus with our inadequacies and expect Him to do the miracle work.

A Miracle for You [Podcast]

Mark 5:21-43

Can Christ do a miracle for you? The text shows us today that you can be a man or woman, an adult or child, married or single, rich or poor, clean or unclean, prestigious or notorious, your need is the same. We are all different and yet we’ve heard about Jesus, we desperately need Him, and we have no other options.

And the only way we come to Him is falling to the ground, confessing our total need, and believing that He will forgive because He can.

A Calm in the Storm [Podcast]

Mark 4.35-41

It’s easy to be brave when everything is calm. We can have faith in God’s deliverance when we don’t sense a need to be delivered. But when the storms hit, and we have something to trust God for, all of a sudden bravery and faith can be abandoned for our own efforts to regain control.

If your storm causes you to be terrified, it is revealing that you are relying on self—just like the disciples.

Why God’s Plan Seems so Slow [Podcast]

Mark 4:21-34

Sometimes God’s plan seems slow. The building of God’s kingdom seldom makes headlines. Furthermore, our weary struggle often seems futile. But Jesus reveals God’s program may seem to be slow and dragging, but actually it is storming the world by stealth.

In a visual age of instant everything, Jesus’ parables encourage patient and persistent faith toward a certain and overwhelming outcome.

Removing the Barriers to Understanding the Bible [Podcast]

Mark 4:1-20

Have trouble applying the Bible? When we hear God’s Word, our barriers to living it out are several: Satan, affliction, and even prosperity.

Jesus challenges us to cultivate a heart that will hear the Word, accept it, and bear much fruit.

Not All in the Family [Podcast]

Mark 3:20-35

Are you in the family? Jesus emphasized the comforting truth that God’s family runs deeper and stronger than all other relationships. In fact, Jesus said His true family consisted of those who do God’s will.

Since we naturally cling to our devotion with earthly kin, we should all the more seek to be one who “does the will of God.”

Whom God Chooses He Uses [Podcast]

Mark 3:7-19

God is pleased to use ordinary people, uniquely chosen to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of others.

As one of the twelve would later write, we “are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood” (1 Pet. 1:1).

Jesus and the God Squad [Podcast]

Mark 2:23-3:6

We have to watch out for our attitudes toward rules. When we pick our favorite ones, we can overlook those more essential. The Pharisees’ crowing leaned on rules as the way to God. But Jesus’ revealed that rules for rules’ sake are never God’s will.

In fact, they can actually keep us from doing good—and from meeting needs.

Bad Company [Podcast]

Mark 2:13-22

When questioned why He hung around “sinners,” Jesus answered that the sick need healing, not the healthy.

The religious were preoccupied—as many are today—with rituals and rules; but Jesus spent His time in relationships with those who needed Him—and those who would receive Him.
