Mark 4:35-41 Jesus – The Object of our Faith

What does it mean to face storms and squalls in your life and NOT focus on them but focus on Jesus?

Mark 2:23-3:6 The Lord of Sabbath

Sunday has always been a “day of rest” growing up.

Mark 1:21-34 The Authority of Christ

In today’s podcast we jump into the first healings and work of Jesus as he comes along with his disciples and, while teaching, encounters a demonic man and Simon’s Mother-in-law who had a fever. And when we take the teachings with the healings what we get is the “authority” and voice of Christ that stands above all the rest. Continue reading Mark 1:21-34 The Authority of Christ
