God allows Joseph to endure betrayal, hardships and rejection, but he becomes the savior of the known world. Sound familiar? No matter what Joseph goes through Scripture tells us that God was with him.
Mark 6:53-56 pointedly tells us that Jesus is our healer... and this message reveals that He not only can physically heal us, but Jesus heals our emotions, relationships, our spirit, our attitude and our thinking.
People think they know who Jesus is and people think they know what the Gospel is... but maybe people have become so familiar with both that they really can't see either. In Mark 6:1-6 Jesus is rejected because His hometown thinks they know Him... but they don't.... and the same thing is still happening today.
We can put our trust in Jesus; He will never disappoint. In Mark 5:21-43 Jesus heals (raises) two polar opposites (a somebody and a nobody) and then heals one indirectly and one directly. We all fit somewhere in-between these extremes which gives us hope.
