Applying vs. Receiving

rest

As men and women we are perpetually drawn to our own works. We find value in that which we can accomplish, get done, or finish in a single day.

Week 6 - Lesson 3

Read: Mark 10:46-42 In Lesson 2, we looked at the faith of Bartimaeus that made him well. Today, we read the same narrative, but will consider the times in which we doubt God's ability or willingness to heal us. Seasons of doubt fall upon many who follow Jesus. In fact, some of the great men of faith in the New Testament experienced seasons of doubt. John the Baptist, Tho...

Week 6 - Lesson 2

Read: Mark 10:46-42 While in Jericho, Jesus and His disciples were among a great crowd of people. Amongst the throng was a seemingly insignificant, blind beggar by the name of Bartimaeus. When Bartimeaus got word that Jesus was approaching, he cried out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" When the crowds discouraged his cries, he called out all the more, "Jesus, Son...

Week 6 - Lesson 1

Read: Mark 10:42-45 In this week's devotionals, we will be looking at the narrative of Jesus healing the blind beggar, Bartimaeus. But before we step into that passage, we should note the text prior to this narrative in which Jesus speaks to His disciples about the 'upside-down' economy of the Kingdom of God. In the world, those who have the most power and authority are t...

Pilate, Jesus, and Barabbas: The Great Exchange

All of the gospels record for us an interaction that is often overlooked in the passion narrative. It takes place between Jesus, Pilate, and a man named Barabbas. We do not know much about this Barabbas except for what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell us. We do know that he was a notorious prisoner (Matt. 27:16), a rebel (Mk. 15:7), a murderer (Lk. 23:25), and a robber (...
