Mark Chapter 5
The King’s Authority
by Patrick Steele
Jesus demonstrates his power and authority over natural disasters, the demonic, disease, and death itself
‘And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”’
Mark Chapter 3
Pastor Patrick Steele continues our sermon series with chapter three from the Gospel of Mark.
Jesus can infuse life into anything that is lifeless, whether it be a shriveled hand or a dry and useless religion.
2 Chronicles 7:14
What does this Bible verse have to do with Dr. Who? You’ll find out as you listen to Pastor Patrick Steele talk about the context of this popular verse.
We pluck [verses] out of context and expect them to work like magic tricks, and unless we understand the context, we should not expect that it’s gonna work like magic on us.
The Bible is a historical document given to us by God to tell us who God is, how He interacts with human beings, and from Genesis to Revelation, God has given us His unadulterated message … so that we might know Him, and live for Him, and understand our purpose, our reason, our interaction with Him, who He is, who we are, our identity, when He’s coming back, and how we’re going to spend our eternity.
Pastor Patrick Steele talks about the christian growth process and it’s link to the trials of this life.
After all of the blessings, and all of the good things he’s done for me… I still find myself back in the place where I’ll be asking if God is really good in this situation or not. Why? Because I’ve been stretched beyond where I was before. I’ve been stretched to the edge of my faith. I’ve been stretched to the end of my capacity to endure it on my own, to the point where I have to come to a place, at the very end where I’m just about to snap, where I learn to trust in God, and not in myself.
