Resurrected and on His way to the Father, Jesus has a few last things to say to His followers. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 16:14-20)

Jesus’ Great Victory

Though wrongly accused, beaten, and crucified, death could not hold Jesus. What seemed to be His apparent defeat was actually His great victory! Chet Boyd III. (Mark 16:1-13)

Jesus’ Apparent Defeat

Even though He was arrested, tried, beaten, and crucified, Jesus was not defeated. What appeared to be His defeat was really His great victory! Chet Boyd III. (Mark 15:16-47)

Jesus Takes Our Place

He came to the earth to take our place. Never is this demonstrated more clearly than when He is crucified instead of Barabbas. Greg Hagues. (Mark 15:1-15)

Jesus’ Arrest

As the final hours of His life approach, Jesus takes the disciples to pray. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 14:27-72)

Jesus’ Body & His Blood

Mary “wastes” an entire bottle of perfume to prepare Jesus’s body for His burial, but the disciples don’t yet understand that He will give all of Himself for us. They didn’t get it then, but we sure do remember it now. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 14:1-26)

Jesus’ Church

Jesus’ Church is massively important, and we have to get it right. The stakes are high, but the results are beautiful. Codie Haddon. (Selected Passages from Ephesians)

Jesus & The End (Part 2)

Jesus continues telling His disciples what to look for as the end approaches. Above everything, He tells them to be ready. Michael McGough. (Mark 13:24-37)

Jesus & The End (Part 1)

Prompted by His disciples infatuation with the earthly temple, Jesus begins telling them about what will happen as the end comes. Derek Amos. (Mark 13:1-23)

Jesus Wants Big Things

Jesus wants big things for our lives. Not money or possessions, but He wants us dreaming big dreams and participating in His big Kingdom. Our friend Abel shares the big things that have been going on in Mexico & Chet III talks about how the poor widow was able to give the most! (Mark 12:38-44)

Identity, Purpose, & Jesus

Jesus says that the most important commandment is all about identity and purpose: love the Lord your God with everything you are, and love your neighbor as yourself. We want to be a people who do that. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 12:28-40)

Jesus is Brilliant

Jesus always has the right and best answer. And through it, we see His brilliance. Greg Hagues. (Mark 11:27 – 12:27)

Jesus Shows Himself

Cursing a fig tree and cleansing the temple, Jesus shows us that He cares deeply for people and their salvation. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 11:1-27)

Don’t Be Satisfied with Anything Less Than Jesus

The rich young ruler loved his riches. The disciples wanted status and position. But Jesus wanted more for them. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 10:17-52)

Jesus talks Marriage, Divorce & Children

Marriage, divorce, and family are some of the most personal — and often painful — topics to talk about. Jesus knew that full well and pointed His disciples towards grace, forgiveness, and healing through it all. Michael McGough. (Mark 10:1-15)

Jesus Responds to Faith

When a father brings his convulsing son to Jesus, he makes one of the most beautiful declarations in Scripture — “I do believe! Help my unbelief.” — and Jesus responds. Chet Boyd III. (Mark 9:14-29)

Jesus’ Radiance

For a brief moment, Peter, James & John see Jesus in all of His glory, and His Father declares: “This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to Him.” Chet Boyd II. (Mark 9:1-13)

Who is this Jesus?

Often, we are blind to Jesus: who He is, what He says, and what He requires of us. But God, in His grace, can open our eyes to see Him truly and know Him fully: the God-man, Messiah, Savior, & Friend. Michael McGough.

Jesus’ Compassionate Heart

From healing a deaf and mute man to feeding thousands with almost nothing, Jesus shows His great love and incredible compassion. Greg Hagues.

Jesus Wants Faithful Hearts

More than rituals, practices, and traditions, Jesus desires that our hearts be full of faith. The Pharisees of Jesus’ time missed it, but a Gentile women was so confident in Jesus that she was not ashamed to ask for what she had no right to. Greg Hagues.

Jesus Has The Power

With compassion, Jesus fed over 5000 people with nothing more than a few fish and small biscuits. The He walked through a raging storm on the sea to meet His disciples. Suffice it to say that Jesus has the power! Derek Amos

Following Jesus Isn’t Cheap

Following Jesus can mean rejection, poverty, and even death. That’s the cost, but the value and reward are so much greater. Chet Boyd III.

Jesus is Stronger

In Mark 5, Jesus proves Himself to be stronger than the strongest demons, incurable diseases, and even death itself. “Tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful He has been.” Chet Boyd III.

Jesus Uses Small Things

In the Kingdom of God, it is the small seeds of faith that produce the largest harvests. Jesus takes the small things and makes them magnificent. Chet Boyd III.

Jesus the Sower

In one of His most famous parables, Jesus describes the hearts of men like soil, and the good news that brings life as the unchanging seed. “Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they sprouted, grew, and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted.” Chet Boyd III.

Jesus’ House

We all need time with Jesus. While He was on earth, Jesus chose 12 men to be with Him, learn from Him, and be His witnesses. These people — the ones who believe in Him and do God’s will — are His true family. Mark 3:7-35. Chet Boyd III.

Jesus is in Charge

In Mark 2 & 3, the Pharisees challenge Jesus for working on the Sabbath, and He makes it incredibly clear that He is the one in charge. Chet Boyd III.

Can’t Contain Jesus

Jesus has come with a new hope, a new promise, and new life — it’s far too much to be contained. Mark 2:18-22. Chet Boyd III.

Jesus, the Mind Blower

While Jesus is visiting Capernaum, four men bring their paralyzed friend to see Him. Whatever they were expecting, they all go way more. Let’s just say Jesus blew their minds. Chet Boyd III.

Jesus is Authority & He is Compassion

Jesus demonstrates His authority in the latter part of Mark 1, but He is not only unconstrained authority, He is compassion too. Chet Boyd III.

Saying Yes to Jesus

Continuing in Mark, Jesus asks Simon & Andrew to follow Him and become fishers of men. They left everything to say yes to Jesus. Would you do the same? Chet Boyd III.

Jesus Gets It

In Mark 1:9-15, Jesus heads into the wilderness, is tempted by the Devil, an begins preaching the good news of God: “The time promised by God has come at last! The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!” Through all of it, one message is heard loud and clear: Jesus gets it! Chet Boyd III.
