Tonight Tara continues on with the series “Servant King”. Mark 1:21-2:12. In Mark’s Gospel we read about Jesus healing many people despite facing resistance from Teachers of the Law. Jesus had a sovereign authority to heal, simply because he was the Son of God. How can we submit our lives to live under this authority and encounter Jesus?
Today we begin a series called the SERVANT KING on Mark’s gospel account. Mark is one of the Synoptic Gospels, it is the shortest of the four Gospels and likely the first, or earliest to be written. It illustrates who Jesus is as a person with vivid detail of His teaching being presented more through what He did than what He said. The Gospel of Mark reveals Jesus the Servant. Mark was an attendant and observer of the apostle Peter and this, combined with what he had learned in his mother’s house (Acts 12:12) and from other leaders in the church, helped him to pen this gospel.
Parable of the Sower – Jesus says that the seed is the message of the kingdom; the obvious point of this parable is that’s God’s Word is intended to penetrate us to grow in and through us and produce a great harvest.
Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. Today we tackle FOUR HUGE QUESTIONS…
Is there an unforgivable sin? Is there a sin that you can commit once, and thereby ruin any chance you ever may have for salvation?
Can it be committed today?
Could I have committed it unknowingly?
How should I live in light of this truth?

David shares how the ‘Servant King’ arrives on a donkey to preach a sermon without words. He’s worth more than religion, opinion and debate. Will you decide now to follow Him? (Mark 11:1-11)
When you read Isaiah 53 about the sufferings of Jesus, all of it has to do with PAIN — that four-letter word from which we try our best to escape. But Jesus did not choose that route. He endured the pain, He bore it, and He embraced it. If there is anyone who can meet you in your pain, you have found Him in the prophet Isaiah’s Man of Sorrows.
Mark 14:1-9 Unpacking one of the most profound pictures in all the Bible. So much so, Jesus prophesied that wherever His gospel was proclaimed this story would be told. As we think about the sacrifice she made for the Lord, we need to ask ourselves the question. Have we done what we could for Him? Have we given all there is to give? We will unpack three areas where she did what she could. As we do, search your heart and see if you have.
