We are born into a spiritual war- a clash between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. The. good news is that Jesus came to wage war and to destroy the works of the devil. What does this mean for us in our daily life? How do we wage spiritual war? Mark 5:1-20 provides a battle plan for spiritual warfare.

Good soil bears good fruit. But what does kingdom fruitfulness look like? What are the barriers to bearing fruit? Our job is to sow the seed of God’s Word and God’s job is to grow the fruit. God will grow what we faithfully sow.

In an age where we can customize just about anything, God is not customizable. His way cannot be contained by our understandings, but He invites us into a relationship over rituals, mercy over mandates, and love over legalisms. This new way is the way of life but we have to choose to walk with Him.

Jesus has the ability, authority, and ardent desire to meet your deepest needs. In Mark, He cleanses the leper and heals a paralytic. While these are miraculous, the greatest miracle is that Jesus, as God in the flesh, forgives sin. He performs physical miracles to teach us about spiritual miracles and that no one is outside of God’s abounding grace. There is no sin that he cannot forgive.

Jesus begins His ministry through the preaching of God’s Word, the casting out of demons, and the healing of the sick. He demonstrates His authority and power as the true King of the Kingdom of God.

The first disciples were men who were drifting through life until they were called by Jesus. He invited them to follow Him with their whole lives where they would experience transformation and be led into God’s purpose for their lives. But these promises were not just for this small group but are are for every believer in every age. Do you hear Jesus calling you to follow Him?

Underneath all of our deepest longings is ultimately a longing for the kingdom of God. The good news is that the kingdom of God is available to us through King Jesus. As we examine Jesus’ baptism, His battle with Satan and the beginning of his ministry we see why that matters for us today.

As we open the Gospel of Mark, we see in the first line what the gospel is about: Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. John the Baptizer came to point the way to Jesus and in some sense this is the calling of the church today. How can we help prepare the way for others to meet Jesus the Messiah?
