MARK 1: HIS REMARKABLE BEGINNING
5You may think you’re too sick, too vile, too sinful, too far gone for Jesus to help; that you’ll clean up your act first, and then come to Jesus. It’s a good thing that the leper didn’t wait until he was clean to beg Jesus for a touch. He would have died first. And if you’re waiting to clean up your act before you come to Jesus, you will die in your sins as well.
MARK 2: HIS REMARKABLE IDENTITY
8We all have a tendency to reject a new idea, or a new revelation of truth because we like the old too much. Like an old, stiff wineskin, our hearts and minds can calcify until we become so inflexible we can’t accept change. When someone introduces “new wine” to us, we crack and split and make a mess.
MARK 3: HIS REMARKABLE RELATIONSHIPS
10Some people think all anger is sinful, and they have a hard time justifying that Jesus got angry, because Jesus was supposed to be sinless. He was. The Bible talks about different kinds of anger. Some anger is harmful and destructive. But there is a kind of anger that is holy and just.
MARK 4: HIS REMARKABLE TEACHING
17I love the fact that Jesus was asleep during the storm on the Galilee. This teaches us several things. First, Jesus was a man who experienced fatigue just like us. But we also see He possessed such a strong sense of tranquility that He could sleep through the storm.
MARK 5: HIS REMARKABLE STRENGTH
MARK 6: HIS REMARKABLE MINISTRY
22For some of you, your dust is that you haven’t forgiven yourself for something in your past. God has forgiven you, but you are still carrying a dusty load of guilt around. Someone said when you forgive others it’s your gift of grace to them. When you forgive yourself, it’s your gift of grace to yourself. Is there a spirit of unforgiveness lingering on you today? Shake off the dust and move on!
