Our weekly FAITH5 is taking us through the Gospel of Mark this year.
If you haven’t yet worshipped with your Grace family you can do so either on Facebook
If you are new to FAITH5, here’s how it works.
Set aside 5-10 minutes at the end of the day and do the following by yourself, with those in your household, or even with family/friends online:
Share…1 high and 1 low from the day.
Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there who had a withered hand. 2 They watched him to see whether he would cure him on the sabbath, so that they might accuse him. 3 And he said to the man who had the withered hand, “Come forward.” 4 Then he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent. 5 He looked around at them with anger; he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. 6 The Pharisees went out and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.
7 Jesus departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him; 8 hearing all that he was doing, they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and Sidon. 9 He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him; 10 for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him. 11 Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and shouted, “You are the Son of God!” 12 But he sternly ordered them not to make him known.
Talk…Here are several questions you can ask each week as you talk about these verses:
1) What does this passage say about Jesus?
2) What issue or need does Jesus address?
3) How did people respond to Jesus and his message or actions?
4) What might God be saying to you/us through this passage?
5) How will you/we respond?
Pray…for each other. For our world. For our church. For our family and friends.
Bless…each other by making the sign of the cross on each other’s foreheads and say: The LORD Bless You and Keep You.
