Who’s in Charge (2)?

Posted: December 11, 2013 by abestratton in Bible Reading Plan, Resources

In these chapters (5-8) Mark continues to point us to Jesus’ unrivaled authority. If you’ve grown up hearing Bible stuff, it’s so easy for us to take these accounts for granted, but if you stop and really think about what’s happening, it’s pretty amazing! I mean, when was the last time you saw a guy exorcise a demon or heal a diseased person simply by talking to them or raise someone from the dead? This is pretty powerful stuff.
But the key comes when Mark shows that Jesus has authority over our hearts too. That’s when Jesus’ power and authority become really personal. Then you have to make a decision about your response to Jesus’ authority. Now, His authority is not just an amazing display out there; now it’s hitting home for you.
Here are questions for this week’s reading.
