No matter how much progress we make, there are still so many areas in which we are still powerless.
We make advancements in medicine and science, but our hospitals are still overflowing with dying people; we make advancements in education and welfare, but people continue to perform acts of evil; we make advancements in meteorology, but we still can’t change the weather.
In these three areas, we remain essentially powerless… and that’s what makes Jesus’ power so extraordinary.
In Mark 4:35 to 5:43 we see his power over weather, over demons and over sickness. He was like no other man who ever walked the earth… and he is certainly unlike any king who has ever ruled any kingdom.
This week as we look at the topic, ‘The King’s Power’, we will see again why following Jesus makes so much sense.
