An Opportunity to Delve Below the Surface
Mark 1:21-28 Jesus’ ministry, like our own lives, was a constant series of interruptions!  The Gospel of Mark records many of them for us.  From the example of Jesus, we can learn to view interruptions as opportunities to help people and glorify God.
  • Interruptions can be annoying to us, but they may also give us an opportunity to delve beneath the surface of a person’s behavior.
  • Why people do what they do is often more important than what they do.
  • Interruptions will sometimes give you the opportunity to address a person’s greatest needs—and to turn them toward Jesus!

    Too Good a Secret to Keep
    Series: (All)
    Mark 1:40-45  It doesn’t seem unusual that Jesus healed a man with leprosy.  What’s surprising to us is his instruction to the man following the miracle.  He told him not to tell anyone!  Jesus certainly had his reasons for such an unusual command, but for the newly healed fellow it was too good a secret to keep.  Why did he immediately share the news with others?
    • The secret involved a change too obvious.
    • The secret involved a change too important.
    • The secret involved a change too amazing!
    That man spread the news of Jesus’ love and power even when told not to.  Knowing his heart, I believe it was an easy sin for Jesus to forgive.  We, on the other hand, often stay silent even though we’ve been instructed to share.  Shouldn’t the good news of a loving Savior be overflowing from us?

    Three Cheers!
    Series: (All)
    “The Three Cheers of Jesus” Many people live their lives full of despair and hopelessness.  They are missing out on the joy of the Lord.  This is probably true for most of us at some time or another.  But Jesus provides what we need to live life abundantly.  This morning, let’s consider three times when Jesus told people to “Be of good cheer!”
    1. The Cheer of Christ’s Forgiveness   (Matthew 9:1-8)
    2. The Cheer of Christ’s Presence   (Mark 6:47-51)
    3. The Cheer of Christ’s Victory   (John 16:33)

    Abigail: A Portrait of Wisdom
    Series: (All)
    1 Samuel 25 On this Mother’s Day, we take a look at a woman whose extraordinary courage and wisdom benefitted two very important, but hot-headed, men—her husband Nabal and the soon-to-be king of Israel, David. Wisdom means keeping your head when others are losing theirs. Wisdom means keeping your commitments even when it’s not easy. Wisdom means keeping your faith even when things look hopeless.

    The Power of Forgiveness
    Series: Joseph
    As the seven years of famine took hold of the entire region, people from all around traveled to Egypt to buy grain.  This included Joseph’s ten older brothers who were sent from Canaan by their father Jacob. Joseph fed them, but also tested them to see how their hearts had changed over the past two decades.  When Joseph finally revealed his identity to them, they were afraid he might take revenge on them for their previous cruelty.  But in Joseph’s response, we are able to see the Power of Forgiveness! What Forgiveness Does NOT Do:
    • It does not indicate weakness on the part of the forgiver.
    • It does not minimize or condone the sin that has been committed.
    • It does not remove all the consequences of sin.
    • It does not immediately wash away all the hurt and pain.
    What Forgiveness Has the Power to Do:
    • It has the power to break the cycle of retaliation.
    • It opens the door to reconciliation.
    • It allows you to live in the present instead of the past.
    • It lets the human heart reflect the character of God!
    Who do you need to forgive today, and whose forgiveness should you seek?

    God-Given Gifts at Work
    Series: Joseph
    Chapters 40 and 41 of Genesis reveal why God allowed Joseph to spend much of his life in Egypt.  Even during his time as a slave and a prisoner, God was equipping him to help save the entire region—including his own family—from seven years of severe famine.  God uniquely “gifted” Joseph with the special skills and abilities he would need to accomplish God’s purposes— from interpreting dreams to administrating the distribution of food.
    • Though our circumstances are much different from Joseph’s, we should be aware that God has also uniquely “gifted” each of us according to His purpose for our lives.
    • When God gives us skills and abilities, He also gives us opportunities to serve Him by helping others.
    • When we use our spiritual gifts for the Lord, He receives the praise and the glory!
