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!
Christmas is an opportunity to not just rehearse and remember the past, it’s an opportunity to welcome afresh the Son of God; to surrender again or for the very first time. That’s the invitation in this message from our celebration of the birth of Christ.
Advent is a season to reflect and to embrace the presence of God available to us through the Holy Spirit. Michael continues our Advent series by talking about how that reality, God with us, brings joy to the deepest parts of our being.
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.
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?
