March 10, 2019 - The Gospel of Mark (Pastor Dave Barber)

Have you ever been gripped by fear or doubt? The storm that caught the disciples on the sea of Galilee terrified them. They woke Jesus up in a panic and He spoke to the sea and the wind and all was still. The disciples moved their focus from the storm to the Lord. Now they were afraid of the power of this God/man because even the wind and waves obeyed him.

Jesus used parables for clarity and confusion. The parable of the sower is the first public parable that he uses specifically to help those who are part of the kingdom understand and those who have rejected him to stay confused. In this parable, Jesus makes clear that as we sow the Word of God it will be rejected, tried, abandoned, and a few will bare amazing fruit.

C.S. Lewis first suggested that Jesus was either a liar, lunatic, or Lord. Mark chapter 3 may well be the place where he got that information. In this account, Jesus calls, consecrates, and commissions believers. He has to survive his family thinking he's out of his mind. But the worst is, that the religious leaders harden their hearts and accuse Jesus of serving Satan.

Are you hard hearted? Most people don't think they are, but hard heartedness affects your ability to see the truth. In these four short snap shots, Mark reveals some hard hearts. The narrative of Jesus' life escalates as the Pharisees ask questions about keeping the law. Jesus drops some particularly strategic messages that reveal who He really is. Messages they should have heard if they weren't hard hearted.

In this message on the calling of Levi we see that Jesus was a friend of sinners. Pastor Dave showed us some of the context and the helped us see the cultural lens we look through as we see what it really means to judge someone.

The crowd came to Jesus to be healed. Some stayed and became committed while others fell away, or were critics. Jesus came to address sin. In this account of the 4 friends of the paralytic we look at the curious, the committed, and the critics and see how they responded to Jesus' message that He had authority to forgive sins.

Some sin clings to us like a leaf that doesn't drop in the fall, but it will drop when the new life of spring courses through the tree. In the same way some of the old self is put off by putting on the new life and allowing it to course through our spiritual veins. This final message of the series is all about what we get to put on.

Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies it will not bear fruit. Our lives are that seed. I have been crucified with Christ it is no longer my life. A crucified life is a life that belongs to Christ - our agenda and all. In this message we look at four aspects of a crucified agenda.
