Mark 1:21-45 (Sermon Slides)

 

THE AUTHORITY OF JESUS
  • Jesus’ Authority in Teaching (Mark 1:21-22)
  • Jesus’ Authority Over the Spiritual World (Mark 1:23-28)
  • Jesus’ Authority Over the Physical World (Mark 1:29-34)
THE TENDERNESS OF JESUS
  • Jesus’ Compassionate Hand (Mark 1:31)
  • Jesus’ Communion with God the Father (Mark 1:35-39)
  • Jesus’ Desire to Heal the Broken (Mark 1:40-45)

 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR US TODAY

  • HUMBLE HEARTS
    • E. Stanley Jones once described prayer as a “time exposure to God.” He used the analogy of his life being like a photographic plate, which, when exposed to God, progressively bore the image of God in keeping with the length of exposure.”
    • Application:
      • What does it look like for you to step out from the momentum of life
        When & Where will you seek to commune with God?
  • FAITHFUL HANDS
    • “We are the Church, the Body of Christ, which by definition has to do with those who have been indwelt by the Spirit of God. Our lives are to speak God’s Word authoritatively. Not only that, but as the Church of Christ we are to be involved in deliverance from sin. Christ calls his followers to minister in his authority.” Kent Hughes
    • Application:
      • Listen for the longing and brokenness in people’s heart this week
      • Minister & speak with tender care and convictions
