The GGF News 9/7/2012

This Sunday we will be looking back over the Messages from Mark and considering some of the major themes.  Find some time to reflect and see what stands out the most to you.  And join us this Sunday.

Mark 10.1-12  
   Do you think of God as compromising?   Do you think He is compromising towards you?  Maybe in the Bible it’s called Grace.  How far will God bend to maintain a relationship?


Mark 10.13  Do you ever wonder if God takes medicine?    What might be the things that ease His sorrow?  In this passage, the medicine Jesus needed was the touch of a little child.

Mark 13.  We live in a world filled with deception and distraction- be on your guard!  God is Good- even when your experience denies it.  And remember- everything isn’t about you!

Mark 14. 1-26  God’s love is nonsensical.  It should offend and infuriate our sense of reason and fairness.  Consider this quote from Oswald Chambers- “If we have the idea that Love is characterized as cautious, wise, sensible, and never taken to extremes, we have missed the true meaning.”. 


Mark 11. 27  Have you ever thought about how your life fits into a larger, divine, Master Plan?
  I have been thinking lately that I am only one molecule in the great River of the Kingdom of God.  And I have found this very liberating, and exciting.  

Mark 14.27  “The great and merciful surprise is that we come to God not by doing it right but by doing it wrong”.   Maybe this is why Jesus told Peter  that he would betray him.  You are more important to God than any mistake you could ever make.  

If you would like to talk about any of these thoughts- I’d love to get together with you.
