The heading in the Bible says "Teaching About Divorce" for Mark 10:1-12.  But actually it was the Pharisees trying to get Jesus in trouble, the people wanting to know the acceptable conditions for divorce, and Jesus' reply that they are asking the wrong questions. The real equation is what did God design marriage to be and why? This isn't a complete study of every situation, rather it is an encouragement to pursue Biblical marriage.

A lot of people in our culture want to make Jesus into a blob of love and forgiveness. Of course those are part of His attributes, but He is also dead serious about sin. In this message he uses graphic language to express how serious he is about sin. He also clarifies what it looks like to be a follower of Christ every day.

Nobody likes to fail, but a failed attempt at something can be a great teacher. The disciples fail to cast out an unclean Spirit and it becomes a teaching opportunity for Jesus. He teaches them that their faith isn't in their ability to use thought format, but is in Christ and that some are only affected by preparedness in prayer. This message lays a foundation for being confident even in spiritual attacks.

This message tells the story of the transfiguration and the life-altering moment the disciples had with Christ and the life-altering moment you can have with Christ.

In Mark 8 Jesus begins to set his face toward the cross. He also begins training the disciples. Lesson #1- the values and truths of the Kingdom will collide with the values and ideas of the world. If you want to follow Jesus you will need to deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow.

This Easter morning we took a look at the first Easter. The first Easter wasn't a joy-filled victory celebration. It began wondering if there was any hope at all. It moved to confusion as they tried to figure out what happened to the body of Jesus and concluded with Mary seeing Jesus for herself. Soon after that the joy turned into resolve as Peter and the other disciples encounter the risen Lord.

The cross of Christ is a place of senseless cruelty and amazing grace. As we look at chapter 15 of Mark we see the rejection of the religious leaders, the crowd, Pilate, and the soldiers. Yet the cross is filled with love. As Jesus gave his life as a sacrifice to pay for our sins there were a few who watched all day become convinced that this was no ordinary man.

Statistics tell us that fewer and fewer people believe in hell these days. Yet the Bible hasn't changed at all. There is a phenomenon called the unintentional results. The unintentional result of pastors not talking about hell because it's uncomfortable is that our people have assumed it must not be important. In this message we take a quick look at what the Bible says about hell.

Legalism is something of a swear word in evangelical circles, and with good reason. But Jesus tells us that our inclination towards legalism is a symptom of a much deeper sickness of our hearts. Mark 7 exposes our hearts for what they are, and leaves us with a longing for the One who can give us the new heart we so desperately crave.

This message highlights principles of faith that Jesus was teaching to his disciples in order to grow their faith. It also shows how Jesus is teaching those same things to us today in order that our faith might grow in Christ.

A few signs of the Messiahs arrival would be that He would be anointed to bring good news for the poor, heal the blind, and set captives free (Isa. 62). In Mark 5 He does all three of these things as he sets the demoniac free, heals the woman who touches his coat, and raises Jairus' daughter from death. Jesus does what no one else could do.

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 Pharisees judged the tax collectors as unredeemable, but Jesus saw them as in need of the Great Physician.

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.

These four fishermen never thought of themselves as world changers, but Jesus knew they would be. He called them to follow and immediately he shared a clear message of repentance. He taught with authority, and he stayed the course without wavering. In this message we join these four disciples in watching the Master introduce the kingdom of God.
