Hard Hearts and Miracles

In Mark 6:36-52, we find a passage that tells two stories—the first is the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000. The disciples bring the issue of the hungry people to Jesus, suggesting Jesus send them away for food to the surrounding towns. But instead of responding in agreement as the disciples expected, Jesus instructed the disciples to “give them something to eat” (Mark 6:37, NIV). The disciples were obviously shocked at this statement and responded accordingly, asking Jesus if they were expected to go and purchase food for all the people there.

Jesus never expected them to go purchase food for all the people. Rather He was testing their faith and their response to the question. This revealed their lack of sensitivity to the Spirit of the One they were following. Jesus put the disciples to work. He said to … Read More »



Displaced Faith

What does it look like to have faith? How do we get the kind of faith Jesus mentions when He grabs that little child and coaches His disciples on the necessity of childlike faith? While we wrestle with our day-to-day issues, it can seem overwhelming to consider a faith that moves mountains. After all, we are normal people with normal lives and that sort of thing just seems a bit out of reach.

In Mark chapter five we find the story of the bleeding woman. Mark tells us she had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. It is heartbreaking that this woman didn’t just feel awful and weak from the unending trial, but she also was left to deal with the social consequence of an issue she never asked for. She was considered unclean by law, meaning that anything … Read More »



Zach’s Miracle

The following eyewitness account was given by Zach’s friend, Bradley Glaspell, one week after the lightning strike.

One week ago today, I sat and waited to see if Zach would call me. If he was allowed, I was going to pick him up and bring him to camp for the day. At 7:30 he called, and I started a life-changing journey. Around 9:15 I picked up Zach. We were back at camp and in service around 10:30. Bro. Caleb Tisdale preached that morning. In his closing, he directed us to ask for miracles for ourselves, for our family, and for our church. I’d love to know what Zach asked for. I believe he got a miracle for all three.

About Noon the service ended. They were going to have games. Zach offered to be a Glaspell for a day and win some … Read More »
