We saw last week how Jesus saved a man. Today, we see Jesus save a woman and a child. Jesus saves everyone who calls on the name of the Lord!
Believe it or not, evil has a face. Evil is not merely a concept or something generally opposite of “good.” All evil can be traced back to a single agent: Satan. War, sickness, disease, catastrophes, violence, lust, addictions, pestilence, waste, relational conflicts, selfishness—all sin and all that is wrong in the world is a particular expression of evil, the unending rebellion of Satan against God. The world continues to bear the scars of this mutiny. In today's passage, we see Jesus confront the demoniac, conquer the destructive, and commission the delivered.
We take a break from the Gospel of Mark to look at what it means to be "devoted to... fellowship" (Acts 2). Pastor Scott proposes that the essence of Christian Life is fellowship with God and others. No recording of the sermon this week.
