Pastor Mark Brown
Jerry West John 6:9 People were gathered to see Jesus, and for good reason. But we must also take time to set our eyes on others. Andrew the disciple spotted a young lad amongst the multitude and a miracle of provision ensued. We must be sensitive to the fact God brought people from There to Here.
Pastor Mark Brown Genesis 5:29 Lamech was so tired of the condition of the curse he named his new born son Noah. He was determined to disciple and raise a child that would bring comfort, rest, & relief. Could Lamech ever truly fathom that his parenting would change the course of history, and preserve the existence of mankind, and lineage of the Messiah. Discipleship literally can change everything.
Pastor Mark Brown 2 Timothy 2:2 Paul love souls too much to leave them un-discipled. He trained Timothy into a disciple to train others into disciples. If we are ever going to reach our world we must slow down and grow through a major DiscipleShift. You will know you are a disciple when you can name your disciple.
Pastor Mark Brown Acts 27:41-43 Trials have dangers that are obvious. One can become bitter, backslider, or casualty. There are some other dangers that are not so obvious. An unanticipated danger of a trial is not what can happen to you, but that all you think about it is. Jesus on the cross focused and reached to those around Him.
Pastor Mark Brown Mark 12:34 In our pursuit of God let us not get so close but not close enough. It will be a sad day for many who were so close to redemption but remain eternally far. The end of time is approaching and many are in the proximity of destruction but the church is in the proximity of redemption.
