• And ascended into heaven (Part 1)
    We worship the risen and ascended Lord. Christ came to earth in his humiliation, taking the form of a servant in his birth, life, and death. After his humiliation, he was exalted in his resurrection, ascension, his sitting at the right hand of God the Father, and when he returns to judge the world. We do not worship a corpse in a tomb, nor do we worship a risen Lord whose body remained on earth. We worship the risen and […]
  • Helpless but not Hopeless
    Mark 5:21-43 Mark chapter five shows Christ’s power and authority over all things. In the first half of Mark chapter 5, we saw that Jesus’ power and authority was over the strongman of this world. We saw Jesus show his earthy ministry was not just for those who physically descended from Abraham.

  • He rose again
    We say things frequently enough it becomes standard in our speech. Christ rose from the grave. We have heard this phrase multiple times, but I believe we have lost how amazing this is. Christ physically died on the cross and was laid in the tomb, then rose again from the dead, after being in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights (Matt 12:40). At the resurrection, Christ ends his humiliation and is now exalted. He is […]
  • We are Beggars
    Jesus, in Mark 4:35, told his disciples, “Let us go across to the other side.” Chapter five begins when they have reached the other side, to the country of the Gerasenes. The end of this passage explains that Jesus went back to the other side (Mark 5:21). Jesus and his disciples are not merely going to a different city. They cross over the sea of Galilee. The region is disputed but is located on the east side of the sea […]
