Mark 1:40-45 – The Compassionate Touch of Jesus

Go back to the past history of this [leper]. Ever since his disease declared itself no human being had touched him. If he had a wife he had been separated from her; if he had children their lips had never kissed his, nor their little hands found their way into his hard palm. Alone he […]

Mark 1:21-39 – The Power of King Jesus on Display

Jesus’ authority and strength came through prayer. Note that Mark makes a connection with Jesus’ power over illness and evil with prayerful seclusion; being alone with his Father. That is a consistent pattern with Jesus when you read the gospels: he prays alone, he prays at night, he prays at times of crisis and before […]

Mark 1:14-20 – The Gracious Call of God’s Appointed King

Jesus preached this message to them: “The kingdom of God is near.” He didn’t come with good advice – “five tips on building a better Galilee”, or “How to have a better marriage”, or, “Learning to live with the Romans.” That was not Jesus’ message. He does not come to confirm the status quo of […]

Mark 1:1-8 – The Beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

This is the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as it is written in the Prophets. Where did it ultimately and first begin?  The gospel of the grace of the Son of God, where was the beginning of the beginnings?  Where first did the gospel begin?   Was it when […]

Psalm 22 – Suffering That Gives Way to Glory

To live the way you have been called and graced to live, you have to know your address. You have to understand what it means to live where you live every day. For example, if you live in the city, you know that parking is going to be a problem. If you live in the […]

Psalm 21 – Rejoicing in the Strength of the Lord

Gladness is the peculiar privilege of saints. “Happy are you, O Israel!” “Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous.” Why should we not be glad? It is all right between us and God. If, having rebelled against Him, we had never repented, and had never been reconciled, we ought to be miserable. He that is out of […]
