Part 40 It All Matters
Coming down off the mountain after seeing Jesus in his Glory, Christ tells Peter, James and John not to tell anyone about what they saw until Christ rose from the dead. What follows is a conversation that demonstrates that it all matters. Theology matters, the Old Testament matters, and context matters. You see the Christian faith is not built on a few select passages of scripture. It is grounded in all of scripture. Even the parts that offend, even the parts we don't like, even the parts that are hard to understand. There are some who think we need to unhitch our faith from these difficult texts, but this is misguided and even harmful as we will see in this text. Click the link to listen.

    Part 39 The Glory of the One
    "Why am I hear? I didn't sign up for this. Am I in the right place? Am I really following God?" There are times when God's people need a little encouragement, a little hope, and a little confirmation that we are going the right direction. Jesus after up ending His disciple’s expectations about why He came and what it meant for them to follow Him, takes Peter, James, and John high up on the mountain to pray and give them that encouragement. And he does so in a spectacular way. Listen to this week’s message, “The Glory of the One”.

    Part 38 The New Normal
    When Christ said to "deny yourself", he was not talking about resisting material things. He was saying that we should not make ourselves the center of our lives. Christ must be the center of our lives. Otherwise we will never pick up our cross and follow where he leads. Listen to this week's message. .

    Part 37 The Truth Before Us
    In Mark 8:31-33 we find that the disciples come face to face with a truth the don't want to accept. Some times the truth is not pleasant, and at times it hurts. But we must never allow what we think or how we feel or cultural pressure to override the truth of God's Word. Listen to this weeks message.

    Part 36 Confession- The Dividing Line
    For many the motto "No creed but Christ" might seem like a Biblical idea, but at it's core it is a false teaching that simply undermines the foundation of the Christian Faith. In Mark 8:27-30 and Matthew 16:16-18, we find the Church and the Christian faith was built up on the rock of Peters Confession of who Christ is. The church which is the Pillar and Ground of the Truth was founded on a creed. Listen here to find out more.

    Part 35 Seeing Clealry
    In Mark Chapter 8 we see Jesus heal a blind man in a very unusual way. He leads him away from the crowd and touches him. But the man is not completely healed because, though he can see, he doesn't see clearly. Then Jesus touches him again and he sees completely clear. What happened? Did Jesus fail to heal him the first time? Was Jesus power limited by something? No! Jesus healed this man this way on purpose. And the reason gives us great hope. Listen here to find out more.

    Part 34 Remember
    There are times in our lives as followers of Christ that we can let the things of this world distract us and blur our vision for the things of God. What we need in our everyday life is to "Remember" Who God is, who we are, and What He has done for us. Listen to this week’s message.

    Part 33 The Problem of Unbelief
    Many unbelievers have said, “if God will just show me a sign then I will believe”. But the problem is, that simply is not true. You see the problem is not a lack of miracles, or a lack of evidence, or a lack of information. The problem is more foundational than that. Listen to this week’s message.

    Part 32 Jesus the Bread of Life for the Whole World
    Mark tells us about how Christ feeds a huge crowd of people with a few loaves of bread for a second time. And for many it would seem like this is a retelling of the same event. But when you look closely at the details, it is clear that Jesus did indeed perform this miracle twice and he has a clear reason why. Jesus is the bread of life not just for the Jews but for the rest of the world as well. Listen to this message here.
