Michael shows us how the stories in Mark 5 are a master class in how Jesus is the king of interruptions and messy faith and how we can embrace it and join in!
Becca and Brian share out of Mark 6, talking about what we can learn about responding to the challenge of God’s kingdom from the different responses to this kingdom shown in this chapter.
The kingdom of God doesn’t work how we expect. So, how does it work? If we’re doing it wrong, what’s the right way to do it?
If we’re honest, we might say that following Jesus leads us into all sorts of pressure, stress, confrontation, spiritual warfare, and misunderstanding. Yes, we can learn so much from Jesus about how the Spirit of God empowers us to walk through it all with patience, grace, and unexplainable peace deep within.
At some level, everyone wants to change the world, to bring healing and hope and justice. It’s hardwired in us. So, how do we partner with God to proclaim and demonstrate that hope and healing?
In this message, Michael begins a new series in the Gospel of Mark, a book that gives us a clear portrait of Jesus as the Jewish Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God, and the suffering servant who is the King of Kings. What does it mean that Jesus is the Servant-Messiah?
