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? Well, in today’s podcast Mark shows us exactly what that means and why it was important for the disciples (even though it was a struggle), for his hearers that he was writing to (those Roman persecuted Christians), and to you and I today.

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
