On Mission At The End Of Your Rope: Mark 5:21-43

May 6, 2012 Speaker: Joe Walser Series: Mark

Topic: Biblical Passage: Mark 5:21–5:43

Our purpose is to live in intimacy with God, in His presence through the Gospel.
-The GOSPEL *Romans 1:16; Psalm 16:5-11; Exodus 33
Your greatest JOY is to live in the presence of God through the Gospel.
*2 Chronicles 16:9 Without hearing the Gospel, there is no victory.
*Mark 5:21-43
1.Great women and men of faith have died horrific deaths.
The two women went on to die, daughter was feed to the lions.
In this life you will have trouble. There is more to this story.
2.This text makes it other than the healing.
Jesus says, “Who touched me?” He knows everything, the foreknowledge of God. This is a picture of intimacy.
3.Intimacy with God. Jesus wants the woman to come forward and proclaim what Jesus has done for her, Salvation.
The number 12 is very significant, used for His sovereign grace calling His people to Himself. These people belong to Jesus.
*Revelation 21:9-14,27
4.Jesus makes the unclean, clean. The evil is in you, you need heart surgery.
5.It doesn’t matter who you are, the Gospels work in you life demands that you come with not “BUT” clause. You can only come to Jesus when you’re at the end of your rope.
The gospel cannot work when you have possessions of your life, you will be at odds with the mission that God created for you.
Applications:
1.Get the mission right!
2.Come to Jesus and the Gospel without any “But” clause.
3.If your doing those things, tell someone about the amazing power of the Gospel.
