Mark (Ch 3: vs 7-19) - They Came to Jesus

Curiosity will only take you so far; desperation will take you all the way.

Those that needed Jesus left everything and pursued Him, because there was no one like Him. He had the words of eternal life, and He still does, and always will.

So how hungry are you for Jesus? Mildly? Occasionally? Or are you pressing in to Him, because you know that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life?

Let this message help you to gauge what your appetite is really like.

Communion Service - The Joy of the Lord

Though Jesus went to the cross for all of mankind, His focus was not on it. Hebrews 12:2 says that, ‘…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross…’.

Jesus’ focus was on the Father, being reunited with Him, once He had been raised to new life and then ascended into His presence. So let this message encourage you to look beyond the difficulties that life throws at you, and to keep your eyes focused on Jesus.

Mark (Ch 3: vs 1-6) - Stretch Out Your Hand

Jesus said to the man with the withered hand, “Stretch out your hand”. To Moses, as he stood before the Red Sea, God said, “Stretch out your hand”.

In the natural world, we stretch our muscles to help them get stronger. In the workplace and in education, our minds are stretched so that they can grow in understanding.

In the spiritual realm, the same is true. We need to stretch out to God in order to allow Him to help us to grow in Him. Therefore, as you listen to this message, stretch out to Him and drawer closer to Him.

Mark (Ch 2: vs 18-22) - The Old is No More; The New has Come

Up until the time of Jesus’ death, the Old Covenant of the Old Testament was still in operation. Then after Jesus’ death, a New Covenant was made in His blood.

Salvation in Jesus’ name can only come through His completed work at the cross and not from our own works of the law.

In this message, we discover that the new life that Jesus promises in His Name, can only be received by faith through His grace. What God now accomplishes by His Spirit in His followers, is a new thing which the law can no longer contain, for as Isaiah prophesies, “Behold I will do a new thing.” (43:19)

Mark (Ch 1: vs 16-20) - Believer or Follower

When it comes to Christianity, you need to ask yourself a very important question:

Are you a believer or are you a follower of Jesus?

There might not appear to be any difference between these two states, but as you will discover in this message, these positions are poles apart.

So, as you listen to the message, take the test and answer the question; then, once you know the outcome of where you’re standing, make the decision to act upon what you’ve discovered.

The Parable of the Fig Tree

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:35)

Everything will be destroyed at some point in time - yet all that will be left will be the word of God…and the fruit of the works of our faith. So the question of this message is, “Who or what are you living for?”
