Mark 5:21-43 – The Tenderness and Timing of Jesus

If the disciples were irritated by our Lord’s seemingly unnecessary delay, you can well imagine that Jairus was fit to be tied. He know that at any moment his daughter would be dead, and here was Jesus making mountains out of mole hills. Why could He not have simply ignored the woman in view of […]

Mark 5:1-20 Christ’s Power and Authority Over Evil

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is sovereign even over demons. The Lord Jesus Christ is sovereign even over the forces of evil. Even in His state of humiliation. Even in His state when He walks through this world as our Prophet, Priest and King bearing our infirmities and sorrows and suffering on our behalf, He […]

Mark 4:35-41 – Jesus: A King to be Feared

This passage isn’t about storms. Not physical storms. Certainly not metaphorical storms. Does this passage have application towards those things? Absolutely. But Mark didn’t put this passage in his account of the gospel to comfort you in the face of the storms in your life. In fact if you walk away from this passage feeling […]

Mark 4:21-34 – The Unstoppable Growth of the Kingdom of God

The mustard-seed is the smallest of all those seeds which grow to any considerable size: and such was the Church of Christ at its first establishment in the world. It consisted at first of our Lord and his twelve Disciples; and even after our Lord’s ascension, their number was only one hundred and twenty. Soon […]

Mark 4:1-20 – Are You Receptive to the Word of God?

Beloved, it is necessary to take an honest inventory of the state of your soul, and to be sure to verify that the Gospel seed has taken root in good soil.   Presumably, many of you here today have, at some point in your life, welcomed the Word of Christ into your heart. There was […]

Mark 3:20-35 – The Gracious Invitation of Jesus to Be Family

We have to think of Christ here as Himself putting away the lower claims, in order more fully to yield Himself to the higher. It was because it would have been impossible for Him to do the will of His Father if He had yielded to the purposes of His brethren and His mother, that […]

Mark 3:7-19 – The Model of Jesus for Discipleship

When will the church learn this lesson? Preaching to the masses, although necessary, will never suffice in the work of preparing leaders for evangelism. Nor can occasional prayer meetings and training classes for Christian workers do this job. Building men is not that easy. It requires constant personal attention, much like a father gives to […]

2 Samuel 7:12-16 – Jesus Born to Be King

Jesus Christ was born to be King. His salvation and His Kingdom apply to present-world problems. But His kingship also has future implications. The sovereignty of Jesus Christ extends in an unbroken line throughout the ages. Hidden from view now, He will come again, according to the Scriptures, in God’s time, and He will reign […]
