Mark 8: 31-38
Series: Mark
Jesus, the one in front of them so humbly in their presence, will be rejected, humiliated, beaten, spit on, crucified, but don’t be fooled for on the third day he will rise from the dead. And one day He will be seen by all humanity in His full glory, honor, and splendor. All of this seems to be a new reality to the Disciples. They have now proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah, but they are still being taught as to what this means for Jesus and to them as His followers. It is going to be a lot different than they had in mind. However, it will all be worth it. And so it is with us. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas. We invite you to join us each Sunday at 10 AM.

    Mark 8:22-30
    Series: Mark
    It is no lack of power that cause Jesus to restore the man’s sight progressively, the first and only progressive miracle by Jesus. And it is no accident that Mark places that miracle in between the episode with Jesus warning them about the leaven, and them being similar to those who are blind, deaf, and do not perceive spiritual things, and this scene of Peter having his vision cleared by God himself. Who healed the blind man partially? Who healed the blind man fully? Who had begun the eyes opening of Peter? Who opened them fully? Peter’s improved spiritual sight is like the blind man who had some vision made possible by God supernaturally working a miracle, but it was made even clearer by God supernaturally clearing his sight up even more. This blind man’s healing is a visual aid in showing that disciples faith.

    Mark 8:14-21
    Series: Mark
    There is a staunch warning to His Disciples in this passage, and a lot of frustration in Jesus’ word and His tone towards His Disciples during this section. All that the Disciples have heard and seen Jesus do, yet they are overly concerned about who is going to get the one loaf of bread that is in the boat. You think their faith would be the absolute greatest of anyone, but here Jesus compares them to almost the equivalent of a person who does not hear, see, perceive or understand spiritual matters. They have faith, they are not unbelievers, but their faith is so small! There is much to be learned from the bread. All men are feeding, but only what Jesus teaches is the way, the truth, and the life.

    Series: Mark
    Jesus uses the Law of God to expose how the “righteous Pharisees and Scribes” were actually sinners. Let the same thing be done here today, if you think you are righteous on your own, then you are not comparing yourself to the right standard. If you know you are a sinner, and have been saved by Jesus Christ, then rejoice!

    Mark 6:45-52
    Series: Mark
    Peace accompanies the Prince of Peace, even for the slow-to-learn. No matter what you are going through, Jesus makes his peace available to you, right here and now, where you are at. I can recall many occasions, where I was not where I needed to be spiritually, but Jesus nevertheless offered his grace and peace to me in spite of it. The next time you find yourself in the striving against the wind life brings you, and you feel all alone, remember that from his vantage point, Jesus sees everything. And He is not indifferent, but is compassionate. Remember, though, what true compassion is. He may not deliver you from your struggle right away, but often uses struggles, hardships, and tests of faith to know Him more fully. When God does answer us and provide His help, keep in mind that His power often meets us in ways that are unexpected, uncertain, and perhaps even frightening. It takes discernment to know where God is truly working, and we can grow in our discernment by growing in our knowledge of God through His Word. And even though we are a work in progress, God makes Himself available to us where we are at right now. A benefit he offers is the peace that accompanies His presence, and it is available even to the slow-to-learn.

    Mark 6:30-44
    Series: Mark
    Shepherd and the Bread. God cares for His sheep by sending the ultimate shepherd, Jesus Christ the Son of God. Jesus takes care of his sheep by teaching them. They feed on His words. His sheep hear his voice, come to him and are fed by him. We also begin to see in this feeding that Jesus uses it to not only point to himself as The Shepherd who feeds them, but also that He is the The Bread of Life. The Bread from Heaven that Israel ate for life was symbolic of the ultimate Bread of from Heaven that would be sent for people to have eternal life!

    Mark 6:14-29
    Series: Mark
    Death comes for all, but the good news for John and the good news for us, is that death is not the end.  Death is not victorious or the end, but only the beginning.  His disciples laid his body in a tomb, but God immediately received him, his soul into heaven. Confess, repent, and believe in the Son. He is the only one who can remove sin.  Don’t expect the whole world to love you.  It didn’t love Jesus, the Disciples, or John. If it does, you might need to be a little clearer about who you believe in.
