Dr. Jim Mann - 05/07/2023


Two stories of faith from opposite ends of the spectrum: Jairus, a holy man and an unclean woman with an issue of blood; somebody with standing in society and a nobody. A very public gesture and one that was meant to be a secret. And yet Jesus, no respecter of persons, responds to and rewards both! We’re reminded: It’s not a zero-sum game with Jesus. It’s not like he only has one miracle to give. There’s enough Jesus to go around! But what a world, huh? So much around us to burden the soul! We wish Jairus’ daughter had never gotten sick and died. We wish that dear woman hadn’t had to suffer for 12 years. We wish that people wouldn’t get in the way of our faith. We wish there weren’t people in the world who discouraged faith. But We rejoice in the fact that even in the face of death, in the face of sickness, in the pressing crowd, even in a mocking and unbelieving world, Jesus is still Jesus. So whatever circumstance you find yourself in – your own situation or that of someone you love – press through the crowd. Get to Jesus. Fall at his feet – and let Jesus be Jesus.

From Series: "How Firm a Foundation"

“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see.” Hebrews 11:1 (MSG) Faith is the currency of the Kingdom of God. We need faith to enter the Kingdom, and indeed, every transaction requires faith. How Firm a Foundation is a series of sermons which examines tales of faith in the New Testament. These are real stories, with elements to emulate and mistakes to learn from. You will walk away with a realistic view of faith and practical principles for everyday life.
