Saved to Serve (Mark 1:30-31)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, November 22, 2015
Part of the Life with God series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Though it is such a simple and seemingly straightforward story, the healing of Simon's mother-in-law in Mark 1:30-31 beautifully encapsulates and illustrates the gospel. It reveals God and the life that we are blessed with in Jesus, which at its heart is a life of service.

Mark 1:30-31

30But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. 31And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. (KJV)

  2. Paul has been undermined by other teachers of the gospel who contend he is not a very impressive speaker when he is with the Church in Corinth. This sermon addresses what our defense is when an attack comes against us that is rooted in the flesh.
