From Matthew 8:28-34. This story of Jesus’ delivering a man from a host of demons may be one of the most bizarre in the Gospels, and yet, bizarre though it is, it’s filled with theological truths that cross centuries and cultures and speak into our lives even today. This account shows us something important regarding the nature of evil and also the nature of the One who takes it on and conquers it.

From Mark 10:17-31. When the rich young man encountered Jesus he asked a sincere question from the heart. Jesus gave him an honest answer. Certainly this is a story about the power of wealth, but there is much more to this encounter with Jesus. It’s not really about money; it’s about the heart.
We jumped back into our Real ID series as Josiah shares a message from Ephesians 1:7-8 on Redemption & Forgiveness. Listen as we consider together the way in which these immense blessings God has given us in Christ make us who we are!
