Sermon Title: Hope In The Midst Of Suffering

Scripture: Mark 6:1–13

    

This week, Pastor David shared a message from the Gospel of Mark about where we find hope when we are suffering.

  • While we do not get to choose the times we live in, we can choose what we do with the time we are given. What are you choosing in this season of your life?
  • We know that God cares about us in these uncertain times because Scripture gives us a clear picture of how Jesus ministered to those who were suffering. How has Jesus ministered to you during these unprecedented days?
  • Pastor David shared that Jesus’ healing ministry is a coming attraction of what we will experience in eternity. How does that give you hope in these uncertain times?
  • How can you show compassion to those around you this week?
