And He Healed them all: The Healing Ministry of Jesus III.mp3
Mark 6: 1-13
We spent much time reviewing today before continuing on our trek through the Gospels.
The new points we established were:
- Perfect faith is not always required for healing.
- Sometimes fear and faith can co-exist in the one being healed.
- Jesus will work to protect your faith from degrading into unbelief.
Finally, throughout the teaching we repeatedly asked the question -“What will it take to keep you from Jesus?”We did this in response to the fact that undoubtedly there were many Pharisees who rejected Christ and opposed Him who within the scope of Christ’s ministry eventually needed healing themselves. Pride is such a large obstacle for humans and without doubt many a Pharisee died unnecessarily because they would not humble themselves and come to Him.
So the question remains, “What will it take to keep you from Jesus?”
As I was teaching this – over and over it reminded me of a song with that title from a much loved artist from my youth – Michael Card. It is lifted from his album Scandalon and though it is quite dated, the words, message and skill Michael uses to write his lyrics is still powerful today!
