    The contrast of Herod killing John the Baptist to Jesus feeding 5000 in Mark 6 is very revealing of the life of sin vs. a life of service. We must be totally devoted to Christ to live for Him, and cannot live like He is a convenience.

    When Jesus heals a woman's daughter who was possessed, and a man who was deaf and mute, He displays to us how He can meet us right where we have a need as well. However, this can only happen IF we will seek Him out in the same way through faith!

    We must not hinder anyone from coming to Christ because it is in serving Jesus and leading others to Him that we find our true reward. However, if anything comes between us and Jesus we must cast it aside because He is worthy of our total focus!

     | 1,000 views

    For Christians, death is merely a passage to life by faith in Christ only! When Jesus encounters people who need Him two things happen: 1) He willingly goes to where they are and, 2) they do whatever it takes to come to Him. We should live the same way!

    Arise, My Child! Mark 5:21-43 Introduction - Jesus is demonstrated in this book as a “servant” -- Key verse: Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” - Last ...read more

     | 1,662 views

    Being greatest in the Kingdom of God is measured by how we serve one another, in our service to God. This is why Jesus is adamant about welcoming even the LEAST of those around us who need to experience Christ's mercy and grace.

     | 2,657 views

    How God tells you to live is infinitely more important than how others think you should live! This is what Pharisees couldn't grasp. The challenge for us also is: Do not get a big head about it and become arrogant and/or unteachable.

     | 1,789 views

    As Jesus encounters more people one thing becomes perfectly clear: They (and we) must rely fully on Him to provide everything we need. We cannot do it alone, nor should we ever think we can. This is sinful, and where He teaches us to turn from!

    Jesus never offered the easy way; he never gave us a quick-fix solution to life. However, He says is that He is WORTH it … and we have a choice to make, will we submit all that we are and come to Him - or choose to deny Him for our own selfish desires?

    Contributed on Jun 16, 2014
     | 1,697 views

    Jesus is shown by Mark as a servant who acts immediately when God commands. As John prepared the way, Jesus' obedience to the Father is clearly demonstrated. The example then before us is simple: When God speaks, we must respond!

     | 1,780 views

    Living for Christ means that we live FOR Him, in everything we do. Sitting in judgment of others, hoping to prove ourselves superior, is SINFUL, and is exactly what the Pharisees thought they could do to Jesus ... and He calls them on it.
