Jesus, the Strong and Merciful Master

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we'll look at Mark 5:1-20, in which Jesus exercises his authority over a demonic legion by casting the troop of demons out of a shackled man, into a herd of pigs, over a cliff and into the sea.What a scene! But maybe even more striking than the pig slaughter are the various reactions to Jesus' authority by the demons, the townspeople and the po...

The Wind and Sea Obey Him; Announcements

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we'll look at Mark 4:35-41 and the very familiar scene of Jesus calming the storm while on a boat with the disciples.

He Who Has Ears to Hear, Let Him Hear

Dear CrossPointe,This week we are back in Mark's Gospel, looking at the parable of the sower (Mark 4:1-20). This is likely one of the more familiar passages in Scripture and one that has many implications for us if we are to understand salvation biblically. I encourage you to read the parable slowly several times before Sunday and ask the Lord to give us humility and "ears...
