Unveiled: The Son of God

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler looks at the wonder of Jesus as the Son of God. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30. For more information, visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Mark 9:2-10, NIV 2011 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.  5 Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)  7 Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”  8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.  9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what “rising from the dead” meant.

Mark 1:10-11, NIV 2011  “At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Many talk about who Jesus is, but few really understand.

Hebrews 1:3 “The Son [Jesus] is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being”

1 John 1-4, NIV 2011, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.”

More times than not, we are simply afraid to see Him as He is.

Mark 4:35-41, NIV 2011 “That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”  39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.  40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

We are called to trust Jesus even when can’t completely see Him.

Hebrews 12:1-3, NIV 2011 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

 

Unveiled: Healer

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler speaks to us about how Jesus as healer has come to heal the entire person. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30. For more information, visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Mark 1:29-34, NIV 2011 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them. 32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. 33 The whole town gathered at the door, 34 and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.  Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” 38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.

For Jesus, healing is always about something more.

Jesus is always ready to heal.

Mark 1:35-39, NIV 2011 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” 38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.

Jesus taught us how to find healing for ourselves.

“Epiphany is the season of the church’s year when we celebrate the revelation, the manifestation of God with us in Jesus. Yet today’s Gospel reminds us that sometimes, in order to have him revealed to us, he must also be concealed from us. Room must be created in our consciousness for him to reveal who he is rather than simply whom we would have him be.”

Jesus expects us to offer healing to others.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23, NIV 2011 Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

Unveiled: The Author

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler looks at the wonder of Jesus as the Author of life. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30. For more information, visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Unveiled: The Author

Mark 1:21-28, NIV 2011 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”  25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.  27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Jesus’ words life.

Mark 1:21-22, NIV 2011 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.

Deuteronomy 18:15, NIV 2011 15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.

John 1:1-5, NIV 2011 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness,h and the darkness has not overcome it.

Jesus wrote the book on worship.

Mark 1:23-26, NIV 2011 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”  25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. 27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.”

Jesus authored all hope.

Hebrews 3:1-6, NIV 2011 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. 5 “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”  bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. 6 But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

Jesus reminds us that he is the author and we are the readers.

Mark 1:28, NIV 2011  28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Unveiled: Follow Me

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler looks at Jesus commitment to lead by teaching us how to follow. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30. For more information, visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Mark 1:14-15, NIV 2011 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Jesus showed us what it looks like to follow.

  • Jesus watched for God’s movement and followed.

  • Jesus called people to God’s good news - which was “The Kingdom of God has come near.”

  • Jesus called people so they could receive the good news.

Mark 1:16-20, NIV 2011 16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.  19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Luke 5:1-11, NIV 2011 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. 2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.  4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”  5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.  Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

Following Jesus demands us to change directions.

Following Jesus comes with great sacrifice.

Following Jesus means we  go public with news of God’s rescue.

Mark 1:15, NIV 2011 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
