Evangelism to the Max

by Jim Ramsey

Jesus

Mark’s Gospel is a “busy” book in which Jesus seems the busiest, moving from one event to another. In his “Gospel of the Servant” narrative, the emphasis is on the deeds of Jesus more than on the words of Jesus. One of those many deeds is recorded in the first twelve verses of chapter 2. It is an account that displays the extremes to which four men went to take a paralyzed friend to Jesus, the only One who had the power to change his condition. This “quartet” literally “raised the roof” to lower their friend into Jesus’ presence. Get the picture? They didn’t let the curious crowd that was in the way deter them, they didn’t let the necessary labor involved discourage them, and they didn’t let possible criticism and opposition diminish their faith in Jesus’ ability to help their beloved friend. Motivated by love, they found a creative way to accomplish the seemingly impossible task at hand.

Es Tiempo de Hablar

“Y les mando que no le dijesen a nadie; pero cuanto más les mandaba, tanto mas y mas lo divulgaban” (Marcos 7:36)

Vivimos en tiempos de silencio. En los matrimonios nadie quiere ser el primero en hablar para solucionar los problemas, Sabemos que algo anda mal con nuestros hijos pero simplemente preferimos quedarnos callados y no intervenir, Como cristianos ya no queremos hablar a otros sobre Jesús por miedo a ofender o a incomodar.
