The Emotional Jesus, Gospel of Mark, 26JAN

How I love Michael Card, his music pulled me in and my ears delighted, my heart grew, and now with his writing my head fills in those gaps I really didn’t know I had!!! And they are vast chasms for sure, but nothing is impossible with God, and here’s Mark’s Gospel to bridge gaps by filling the deep chasm in with living water… It will take my whole life to study Jesus…

Jesus is as deep and real and amazing as we can only scarcely imagine – This Gospel of Mark brings another dimension for us to see – Jesus’s emotional human side – as seen and shared by Peter… Mark is like a son to Peter, and records his accounts for the ages… we learn our faith deep inside an emotional deep relationship with Jesus… Their lives for our faith… God is showing that Jesus implored “I know EXACTLY how you feel…”

Cool… Who knew the four complimentary dimensions of the gospels (I constantly say: “why don’t they teach this?” Well, I guess it’s OUR job to seek it out – no, I KNOW it’s OUR job and it is a blessing to seek it out….  then I guess – I don’t have to guess – I KNOW it’s OUR JOB to share what we know) – and it is my amazement that unbelievably this information is lost to the average reader… Luke is the gospel of AMAZEMENT, Mark is the gospel of PASSION… I’m so grateful for deeper thirst of knowledge – and it’s SO important to share…

Mark was writing in the middle of Rome burning and in crisis… We have a connection of real time to history books – we have a book, this gospel, as a connection of real time to Jesus – God’s timing finds us and finds the time to share – Mark had to get this down and written because Peter was running out of time… Peter’s story is NOT lost… We are not lost either.

Mark’s Gospel is showing how Jesus can relate to us in our deepest issues and angst – even when we are emotionally charged, we can be changed, and He WILL find a way to challenge us to be changed… Maybe this understanding comes in the nick of time for us…

God knew I was lost, I didn’t, but He knew where to find me… He still does…

God knows…

He’s been there, and He knows us, our pain, our passion, our path…

Jesus came and comes for us, deeply looking for us to turn our hearts and tune our hearts with Him…  We see that He understands when we are in turmoil too… Joy is found in the understanding of the journey that is sometimes wrought with twists and turns… We look with urgency to God… God urgently aches for us.

Mark wrote with urgency… Peter spoke with urgency… God’s timing for sure…

I can’t wait to read this gospel…

Thanks God for my time to learn…
