Sermon Notes

Sunday, December 29, 2019

If our relationship with Christ is based upon only tangible things that we see, taste, hear, and touch I would suggest to you that we are living a mediocre walk and it’s no wonder there’s no life change in us or those around us.

Heb 11:1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Mark 5

21-24 After Jesus crossed over by boat, a large crowd met him at the seaside.  One of the meeting-place leaders named Jairus came. When he saw Jesus, he fell to his knees,  beside himself as he begged, “My dear daughter is at death’s door. Come and lay hands on her so she will get well and live.” Jesus went with him, the whole crowd tagging along, pushing and jostling him. 

25-29 A woman who had suffered a condition of hemorrhaging for twelve years— a long succession of physicians had treated her, and treated her badly, taking all her money and leaving her worse off than before—had heard about Jesus. She slipped in from behind and touched his robe. She was thinking to herself, “If I can put a finger on his robe, I can get well.” The moment she did it, the flow of blood dried up. She could feel the change and knew her plague was over and done with.

30 At the same moment, Jesus felt energy to the crowd and asked, “Who touched my robe?” 31 His disciples said, “What are you talking about? With this crowd pushing and jostling you, you’re asking, ‘Who touched me?’ Dozens have touched you!”

32-33 But he went on asking, looking around to see who had done it. The woman, knowing what had happened, knowing she was the one, stepped up in fear and trembling, knelt before him, and gave him the whole story.

34 Jesus said to her, “Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole. Live well, live blessed! Be healed of your plague.”

35 While he was still talking, some people came from the leader’s house and told him,“Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?”

36 Jesus overheard what they were talking about and said to the leader, “Don’t listen to them; just trust me.”

37-40 He permitted no one to go in with him except Peter, James, and John. They entered the leader’s house and pushed their way through the gossips looking for a story and neighbors bringing in casseroles. Jesus was abrupt: “Why all this busybody grief and gossip? This child isn’t dead; she’s sleeping.” Provoked to sarcasm, they told him he didn’t know what he was talking about.

40-43 But when he had sent them all out, he took the child’s father and mother, along with his companions, and entered the child’s room. He clasped the girl’s hand and said, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, get up.” At that, she was up and walking around! This girl was twelve years of age. They, of course, were all beside themselves with joy. He gave them strict orders that no one was to know what had taken place in that room. Then he said, “Give her something to eat.”

Focus your Faith in Christ

Faith can become ever more powerful in the waiting

Faith ignores doubt

Faith results in resurrection

Over All I Know

  Andi Rozier, Jason Ingram, and Jess Cates

Verse 1

You tell mountains they must fall and they fall

You tell oceans to be still and they’re calm

You tell sickness it must leave and it’s gone

In my weakness God I know You are strong

You are the One above it all I stand in awe

You’re the God over all I know

No higher name no greater throne You stand alone

You’re the God over all I know

Verse 2

You tell broken things be healed and they’re whole

You tell fear it has no place it must go

You tell death it has no chance it won’t win

And if You are for me God what can come against

I believe it I receive it my God is over all (3X)

It Is Well

– Horatio Gates Spafford, Kristene DiMarco, and Philip Paul Bliss

Verse 1

Grander earth has quaked before

Moved by the sound of His voice

Seas that are shaken and stirred

Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Chorus

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

It is well with me

Verse 2

Far be it from me to not believe

Even when my eyes can’t see

And this mountain that’s in front of me

Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well it is well with my soul
