Jun 28 The Meaning of Marriage / Mark 10:1-12

Shea Sumlin

Debates on the definition and meaning of marriage and divorce were just as heated in Jesus’ day as they are now. There were many divisions over what grounds were permissible for divorce and what grounds were not. In this passage, the Pharisees seek to trap Jesus on his view of divorce, hoping to… More

Jun 21 The Cost of Following the Servant / Mark 8:34-9:50

PJ Lewis

After letting His disciples know what it will cost Him to bring us salvation, Jesus teaches us what it will cost us to follow Him. And we find that it costs us what it costs Jesus: our life. Following Jesus is not just believing things about Jesus. It is believing in Jesus, and that changes… More

Jun 14 Who Do You Say That I Am? / Mark 8:1-33

Jerrod Rumley

After lecturing and training His disciples, Jesus has given them multiple lab settings to follow Him. In this message, Jesus asks the most important question the disciples could ever answer and quite possibly the most important question you could ever answer. “Who do you say that I am?” It’s a… More

May 31 The Gospel vs. Religion / Mark 7:1-37

Shea Sumlin

Out of all the enemies and challenges Jesus has faced thus far in Mark's Gospel, probably the greatest one is that of religion: man's attempt to justify or sanctify himself before God through his own human effort or external means – apart from Christ. In this passage, Jesus will confront religion… More

May 24 Sufficient in Christ / Mark 6:1-56

Shea Sumlin

Two of the most well known miracles in the Bible are “The Feeding of the 5,000” and “Jesus Walking on Water.” Both the churched and unchurched alike are generally aware of these two particular miracles. Yet for many, our understanding doesn't go much further than the flannelgraph pictures in our… More

May 17 Trusting His Authority / Mark 5:1-43

PJ Lewis

In Mark 5, Jesus continues to show His disciples what it means to follow the servant. We see three instances where Jesus demonstrates the power and authority given to Him from the Father. He reminds the disciples what it means to be available to serve anyone, anywhere at anytime. He also shows His… More

May 10 What Kind of Dirt Are You? / Mark 4:1-41

PJ Lewis

Jesus teaches in Mark 4 that there are four types of soil, and every person falls into one of these types. But as we look more closely, we see the first three are really not as different as we might think. We find that trusting Jesus and His Word part of the time, and partly trusting Jesus all of… More

May 3 A New Community / Mark 3:13-35

Shea Sumlin

This passage serves as one of the most significant pivot points in the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. Following the first official plot by the religious leaders to kill Jesus, the clock begins ticking towards His inevitable journey to the cross. With this in mind, Jesus now calls forth twelve men… More

Apr 26 Healings and Questions / Mark 2:1-3:12

Jerrod Rumley

Jesus' fame has spread through the land, and now He has returned to His home base for ministry in Galilee. He has multiple encounters with people through healing but addresses peculiar issues at first. He deals with matters of the utmost priority: their sin. Jesus' ministry dealt with real needs… More

Apr 19 Anytime Anywhere With Anyone / Mark 1:9-45

PJ Lewis

As we continue in the book of Mark, we find Jesus launching out on mission. We also find Jesus inviting others, like us, to join Him on this mission, and we learn more of what this mission is all about: people. It's about showing the life of Jesus and sharing the life of Jesus with others. In this… More
