Dawn Horlock will tell us how she has been dealing with lockdown and will bring us our reading on Mark 3:7-35 which speaks of God continuing to build his Kingdom. Alison will lead us in a chorus.
Last time 3:6 they plan to kill Jesus
What is God doing? Why is the world so messed up?
(Do you have an answer?)
First, Chaotic desires of the crows contested with the calm calling of Jesus disciples
Do you recognise the chaos going around you at the moment?
How might a church have a different agenda to Jesus?
How might you help others who are anxious at the moment?
Second, Controlling and hostile people contrasted to God’s people v20-35
Family of Jesus wanted to take charge of Jesus, how might we want to dictate the
teaching of Jesus?
What do you think of CS Lewis assessment, is he mad, bad or God? But a more
terrifying and greater question would be, what does God think of me?
Who is the stronger man?
Who are God’s people according to v33-35?
How are we matching up to this?
