Part 25 The World Hates The Truth Lo
If there is a fact that we need to come to terms with, it is the fact that the world at large hates the truth. And it is not that the world doesn't know the truth, because the world does. Paul in Romans 1 reminds us that everyone knows the truth, it is just everyone suppresses the truth in unrighteousness. But even though the world hates the truth, the world desperately needs the truth. And so we must courageously declare the truth even when the world pushes back. Listen here.

    Part 24 What About Judas
    In Mark Chapter 6:7-13 we find that Jesus calls his apostles, he trained them, he equipped them, and he sent them out to preach and do miracles. And they went. All 12 of them. And that includes Judas. Jesus called Judas to be an apostle. He trained him, he equipped him, and he sent him out. WHY? This raises several important questions. Was Judas saved? Was Jesus fooled? And was God surprised by Judas’ actions? And what does all of this mean for us? Listen here.

    Part 23 Obey and Go
    The truth is, Jesus equipped his 12 apostles to go out and preach the gospel and he empowered them to meet people’s needs. Many of us, as Christ followers, are willing and happy to go out and love those around us through ministries of mercy but we are afraid and even unwilling to share the gospel. The problem is that meeting peoples short term needs but never addressing their greatest need (the need for salvation) is ultimately not loving but selfish. Listen here to “Obey and Go”.

    Part 22 The Aweful Power of Unbelief
    It has been said familiarity breeds contempt. Jesus knew this all to well when he preached to the members of his hometown. The first time they tried to kill him. The second time they called him an illegitimate child of a scandalous woman. The fact is, the normal default for unbelievers is a hard-hearted rejection of the gospel. That is to be expected. So, don't take it personal if you share the hope of Christ and they reject it. Your job is to sow the seed, love the people, pray for God to change their hard hearts and never give up.

    Part 21 The Powerof Faith Lo
    Our faith is powerful. But it is not powerful because of us. It is powerful because the object of our faith, Jesus Christ, is powerful. Turn to him and believe because he is all powerful and works out all things for our good and his glory. Listen to the Power of Faith.

    Part 19 Growing up in the Storm
    The disciples were terrified and upset when, in the middle of a life-threatening storm, they found Jesus asleep. But Jesus woke and calmed the storm and then asked them why were you afraid? The truth is that Jesus knew why they were afraid. He asked the question to reveal two important points. 1. They have nothing to fear as long as they are with Christ. 2. They really didn't know Jesus as well as they should. It was time for them to grow up. Mark 4:35-41

    Part 18 Mighty to Save
    After Jesus tells the parable of the sower he tells 3 more parables that drive home the point that salvation is not the work of men or of angels but the work of God. God is indeed mighty to save. Mark 4:21-34

    Part 16 Real Family
    Jesus said, "For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.” (Mark 3:35) What is the family of God? What does it mean to be part of the family of God? In Mark 3:31-35, Jesus in his own shocking way challenges our understanding of real family, and he communicates some important lessons how we become part of God's family, and the implications of being in His family. Listen to Part 16.
