Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death is part of everyone’s life.  The gift the Shepherd gives is a peace that becomes a reality greater than the pain.  Today we follow David’s journey into the valley and find the shepherds help in our greatest need.  If we walk with our shepherd he can make us a garden that defies the evil around us.

Every sheep is important to the shepherd. His eyes are always watching to care and direct his flock. Often times sheep will become cast down and become in need of rescue. Today we find our God the Healer who is eager to restore His sheep back to being upright before Him.

After being made to find rest the sheep deepen their understanding of their Shepherd's care.  The sheep are now ready to be led in the comfort of submission.  As they grow in their need for water the faithful Shepherd leads them to what will satisfy their thirst.  Only the Shepherd knows where to find still waters in a land dry and arid.  Can we find satisfaction in the comfort of submitting to a Shepherd that knows where to lead us?

Can we be honest enough to agree that we are not perfect? In an imperfect world filled with imperfect people we are bound to hurt one another. Most of us have a story of unforgiveness. A time when we were wronged, hurt, or misunderstood. It is so easy to block someone on facebook, defriend, and unfollow when relationships get hard. But Jesus calls us to radical forgiveness based on His forgiveness toward us.

In today's message we see Jesus demonstrate His authority in ways that expand the disciples hearts to trust Him more. The more that they trust Him, the more willing they are to follow Him. As we read we will find ourselves asking, "Do I trust Jesus enough to follow Him in my life?"

Whether you recognize it or not, God has been reaching out to you. You've probably had moments that can't be explained, circumstances that just line up, and/or "lucky" events that are inexplicable. Easter is the celebration of God coming near and showing himself to us through Jesus. The question is, "Do you see him?" And what's next?

For Mark, Jesus is Everything!  And as he tells stories of Jesus, that theme beats over and over.  Who do you say Jesus is?

In these 5 short stories, Mark wants us to see that Jesus is up to something.  More than healings, miracles and amazing teaching -- Jesus came to deal with sin.  He's changing the game.  He's overthrowing religion and establishing his identity and mission -- as Savior of the world.

Have you ever had a "whatever it takes" moment?  Jesus is confronted by 4 friends who were crazy enough to tear off a roof in order to get their paralyzed buddy to Messiah's feet.  And Jesus' response is #unexpected when he reveals that he has come to earth to do "whatever it takes" to bring us forgiveness and new life!

Jesus begins his public ministry with a bang!  He calls ordinary people to follow him -- and then shows what the life of a disciple will look like.  We follow Jesus through a very long, very busy day -- and learn how he hears from his Father.

For over 2000 years, Jesus Christ has been disrupting the status quo.  Mark records the life and teaching of the Messiah in vivid detail, revealing how Jesus raised up disciples who were then given the charge to change the world.  Jesus and his message of hope are still disrupting lives today. Do you know his story? This is the beginning!

"Go, therefore, and make disciples."  That's a command from Jesus.  So it's kind of important.  But what is a disciple?  And how do you make one?

The word "disciple" is kind of confusing.  We've come to identify "disciple" with a program, class or particular study.  But the New Testament doesn't make a distinction between a Christian and a Disciple.  To be a believer (Jesus-follower) is to be a disciple.  THAT changes things.

Today we begin our series by defining what a disciple is. We look to scriptures to see how Jesus' disciples turned to Him as their lead, made Him their life, and bore the fruit of Jesus. How do we answer the question, "Am I A Disciple?"

The final "Dangerous" prayer is a posture of availability before God.  Jonah and Moses were called by God and said "I'm not going" or "Send someone else".  Isaiah teaches us to live available, "Here I am.  Send me!"

This is probably the MOST dangerous of the prayers we can pray!  We spend much of our lives trying NOT to be broken or weak.  But what if the life of Jesus is our model?  What if Mark 14 illustrates how to live "Broken & poured out" for all of us?

What is God's will for my life?"  Ever ask that question in the middle of a decision moment?  God's will really isn't that mysterious!  In Psalm 143, David teaches us to say, "Lord, teach me to do your will.

Deep in an Old Testament genealogy is a guy who encountered the presence of God -- and nothing was ever the same for him (or his family).  He discovered what was really "worth it."

When God came near that first Christmas -- he wasn't what we would expect.  Rather than a triumphant King, he sent Messiah as a suffering servant.  Because in God's economy, the way up is down!

How do we handle being mistreated by those with leadership influence (parents, bosses, pastors)?  They should know better, right?  The story of David reveals that it is possible to "respond in the opposite spirit" even when a leader creates an opportunity for offense.

Do you have the right to be offended when you have genuinely been mistreated?  Joseph's story is a profile in forgiveness and finding freedom from offense.  He made a choice to become better rather than bitter.
