  • Bent Out Of Shape

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Aug 20, 2016
     | 2,467 views

    Jesus knew that rules are important, but he knew that the needs of people are more important. You and I need to learn that lesson as well. Whenever we see someone in need, the most important thing is to help them, no matter when or where it may be.

    To help you understand the importance of the reading we just heard from Luke’s Gospel, I’m going to do something unusual. I’m going to bend over. As you can see, this is not a very comfortable position for me. I could easily stay bent over like this for a few minutes, but what ...read more

    Why would Jesus heal a man on the Sabbath and then tell the man (in violation of the Sabbath rules of the Pharisees) to pick up his mat and walk?

    OPEN: There’s a story I read once of 3 umpires who were talking about the feeling of power they had on the baseball field. As they talked about what gave them this sense of empowerment, the 1st umpire said – “I call ‘em as I see ‘em.” The 2nd smiled and said, “That ain’t nothing. I call ‘em as ...read more

    In Mark 3:1-6, Jesus teaches us about what the Sabbath is through His healing of a man with a withered hand. This sermon explains what the Jews believed about the Sabbath, and how we can apply the Sabbath as modern Christians.

    In the movie The Incredibles, there is a scene where ex-Super Hero Bob Parr, aka Mr. Incredible, has a confrontation with his boss.

    Don’t let religious traditions become more important that people.

    The religious leaders did not ask, “Who healed you?” but rather, “Who told you to do this on the Sabbath?” They were more concerned about a broken rule than a miraculous healing. According to the Pharisees, carrying a mat on the Sabbath was work and was therefore unlawful. It did not break an ...read more

    In our story today, the Forbidding Pharisees are back and do they ever have an attitude! They have a whole slew of legislated laws regarding the Sabbath that they expect everyone to keep with exacting detail, and they have made it their life’s work to ens

  • Beyond Strict Series

    Contributed by Vic Folkert on Apr 3, 2007
     | 1,409 views

    Morality is more than "strict" or "lax". It begins in the heart, develops moral principles and guidlines, and ultimately is in the context of a relationship with God who cares

    Beyond Strict Mark 2:23-3:6 Illus: I placed signs on the wall on either side of the platform: "strict" and "lax", moving back and forth toward one or the other at appropriate times.

    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,853 views

    A lot of people have had questions about the purpose of the Sabbath. Jesus takes it head on and reveals a lot about how we should live our lives.

    Last time we ended with Jesus promising rest and peace for anyone who would come to Him and take His yoke—a yoke where He does the heavy lifting—no more striving to earn God’s favor by being good—only submitting lordship over your life to Him. The Jews got a picture of the rest of God through the ...read more

  • The Great Communicator

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Aug 26, 2012
     | 1,195 views

    Tonight we are going to look and see the Word teaching the Word, so that not only would people hear the Word, but they would apply the Word. But before people can do that they must understand the Word, so we are going to hear from the great communicator.

    We first looked at in John that Jesus was Word and Word was with God and the Word was God. To reveal to us that now the Word is not only spoken but the Word is seen…In the flesh, He dwelt among us. Then we looked in John and found out that Jesus turned water into wine, so not only would ...read more
