In The Middle of Chaos - Week 2

In The Middle of Chaos - Week 2

Sep 19, 2021

Passage: Mark 5:34-43

Preacher: John Marcott

Series: In The Middle of Chaos

Category: Anchored

Summary:

Jesus’ ‘Laughable’ Calm amidst Chaos Message #2 in the series “In the Middle of Chaos” Mark 5:34-43 St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of Elizabethtown September 26, 2021 Pastor John Marcott

Detail:

Much of Jesus’ teaching and preaching took place amidst noisy, pressing, agitated crowds.  To avoid being stampeded he would preach from a boat (Mark 3:9) and once he even escaped being pushed off a cliff! (Luke 4:29) The swirl of chaotic noise and activity around him is a fitting metaphor for our own lives amidst various pressures, combative voices, threats and worries – both local and global.  Watching Jesus speak into chaos sheds great light on how we are to react to our ‘crowded’ lives. 

 

We will look at him in action:

  • September 12: “Jesus’ Questionable Concern in the Middle of Chaos” (Mark 5:21-34)
  • September 19: “Jesus’ Laughable Calm in the Middle of Chaos” (Mark 9:34-43)

In the middle of chaos, we aim to follow him by sharing his concern and experiencing his calm.
