This Weekend – The word prejudice actually comes from the term “prejudging”. We prejudge people when we declare a verdict on them, acting as their self-appointed judge. Have you ever been on the receiving end of that kind of experience? Sure, we all have! How did you feel? Matthew, the tax collector of the gospels was hated for his occupation and place in the culture of the day. And yet, the Lord saw something in him that no one else could see. Don’t you think He can do the same thing with you and those you know?

MIRACLES FROM MARK
Message 3 in the Series, Airing Week of 4/22/2019
This Week – This is the only account that I know of in the Gospels where a miracle happens on the way to another miracle. On the way to raise the daughter of one the synagogue rulers from the dead, Jesus is confronted by a woman who was ill for 12 years with chronic bleeding. It’s unusual in that the woman is healed just by touching “the hem of the garment” of Jesus. This is a great story that shows the power of Christ in people’s lives.
Monday (4/22) – We begin with the touching story of a minister from the Dallas area who lost a son in crib death. He next child became very ill one night. The minister ran stop signs and sped to the nearest hospital. At that moment, nothing else mattered other than getting his daughter to the hospital. We then read our text from Mark, where Jesus is approached by a synagogue leader. His daughter was dying. He pleaded with Jesus to come and heal her.
Tuesday (4/23) – On the way to the synagogue ruler’s house, Jesus is confronted with a woman who had a 12-year old ailment. Twice in this account, people fall at the feet of Jesus to plead their needs. Sooner or later, we all will have a “fall at the feet moment” with Jesus! Some of you reading this have had that happen in the last month or year!
Wednesday (4/24) – We share a piece of writing about what chronic illness does in the life of a person who struggles with that. Perhaps you have dealt with that. Perhaps you are dealing with that now. We then share a powerful illustration of a minister visiting a man in recovery, just out of heart surgery in the early days of open heart surgery.
Thursday (4/25) – In route to the house of the sick little girl, Jesus and the father are told, “She is already dead.” Jesus goes to the home, ignoring what they said! There is a powerful story in today’s program about a school teacher visiting a boy in a burn unit of the local hospital. You will be moved to hear this!
Friday (4/26) – We close with a story of Ravi Zacharias with some very unpleasant details. It’s a true story out of the Vietnam War. If you can overlook the unseemly events, you will discover a powerful story about the word of God in a man’s life. The word of God has miraculous power in a man’s life, even with the crudeness of this story. The word of God is living and active!
