Notice all the pain present in Mark 1:21-45. Demon-possession, sickness, leprosy. We read over these words quickly. How many days, months and years of pain do they represent?
Thankfully, the Healer was present in the midst of that pain. “Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons.”
In this weekend’s message, we will explore the comfort and the challenge of this truth: The Healer is present in the midst of pain.Read Mark 2:1-12 in preparation for the message.
As we read the Old Testament, we shall see so much pain in the lives of God’s people. The Tabernacle, and later the Temple, was a visible assurance that the Healer is present in the midst of pain. Read about the furnishings of the Tabernacle in Exodus 37-38. Watch yesterday’s video devotion to appreciate the craftsmanship of God’s Old Testament people.
