People, Pressure, Purpose (Mark 3:7-19)
Jesus lived a real struggle balancing the manifold legitimate needs of suffering people with the immediate and long term purpose of His mission- to usher in the Kingdom of God by the gospel.
We learn much from Jesus’ actions:
I. The needs of hurting people are real and widespread
A. Physical needs
B. Spiritual needs
II. Balancing the meeting of peoples’ physical needs and keeping focused on the wider spiritual gospel mission is a constant struggle in this life.
III. Multiplying disciples, by God’s grace, is the most effective way to address the manifold needs of hurting people.
