Mark 6

1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

15 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.

18 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.

19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

35 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

45 And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.

46 And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.

47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

51 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

38 thoughts on “Mark Chapter 6

  1. Have you ever been here before? If, you haven’t, don’t worry you’ll get understooding. Give it time….

    But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

    Many other great things happened here. But, a great man was lossed. But, his voice is still being heard today….”REPENT”.

  2. And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

    2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

    3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

  3. iLove to eat the Word

    The Importance of the Evangelist
    2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
    3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
    4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

    As I read the above verses, it began to come to me about how important the evangelist is to the local church. Many were offended at the Word and Actions of Jesus simply because they grew up with him. This principle of the Word of God is found in our churches today. This is the reason why the role of the evangelist is so important. The evangelist is not greater than the pastor, the only difference is the people are more ready to receive the word of a stranger then the one who “grew up among them.”

  4. (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. -Matthew 6:32
    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. -Matthew 6:33

    For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink.

    Righteousness, peace and joy are the things I am seeking after today .

    God is great and greatly to be praised.

  5. Verses 1-6 MSG speaks to me about stepping over our doubt and trusting in our Creator. We cannot afford to be like the end of verse 3 where is says “They tripped over what little they knew about him and fell, sprawling. And they never got any further.”

    Verse 7-13 MSG reminds me that the time is now to reach for lost souls. Verses 8-9 say “Don’t think you need a lot of extra equipment for this. You are the equipment. No special appeals for funds. Keep it simple.”

    Verses 14-29 MSG spoke to me about how John just spoke truth to Herod and God took care of the rest as the end of verse 20 says ……”Whenever he listened to him he was miserable with guilt—and yet he couldn’t stay away. Something in John kept pulling him back.”

    The end of verse 34 MSG says “When Jesus arrived, he saw this huge crowd. At the sight of them, his heart broke—like sheep with no shepherd they were. He went right to work teaching them.” Lord help us to see this city the way Jesus sees it and help us to get to teaching.

    The end of the chapter reminds me of the power of my God, the one who controls the winds and a simple touch from the Master can make you well. Thank you Jesus, for saving me, today.

  6. 52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

    Many people harden their hearts toward the things of God! They watched 5000 fed with only five loaves and two fish, but they still never considered this miracle. The reason these people could not accept the workings of Jesus Christ is the same as today. They hardened their hearts and could not believe the miracles that they actually saw.
    Jesus was healing, feeding, and delivering people of evil spirits, yet these people still did not believe.
    We should never harden our hearts to the works of Jesus but trust in the move of God for Revival.

  7. 34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things

    This city is full of lost sheep looking to fill a void but don’t know where to turn. We too are the sheep of the Lords pasture but we are knowledgable of His word and are able to help lead the lost to what they’ve been searching for all along. We shouldn’t stop and won’t stop until the whole world knows!

  8. YOUNG MEN BEWARE:
    22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
    23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
    24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
    25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.
    26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
    27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
    28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
    29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
    30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

    There are plenty of women today that still play the seductions games and if you don’t keep yourselves pure and your mind clean they will wrap you in their web and by then it is too late. It is obvious that Herodias is playing every part strategically and knows exactly what she is doing. In the same way, mothers be careful what you advice your daughter to do this games are not only dangerous, but just like John the Baptist it could end up in tragedy. Young men read Proverbs 31 and keep your heart and mind pure, awaiting for your beloved. Young ladies read Proverbs 31 and keep your heart and mind pure, awaiting for your beloved. Strive to be that women from Proverbs 31 and you will be greatly blessed. Young Men read Ephesians 5:25-33 and learn to love your future wife. May the Lord bless you all and may He keep you clean and acceptable in the eyes of God. In Jesus Name I pray AMEN.

  9. Accountability.

    30 The apostles then rendezvoused with Jesus and reported on all that they had done and taught.

    To some, accountability to our Pastor is a strange concept. However, it is biblical and for our own good. Pastor is a not busy body and does not need to have his nose in everybody’s business. He is looking out for us. Don’t shrug your reports. When we fall short of the mark, report it. In order to establish accountability, there needs to be trust. Developing trust is a slow process and it takes time to develop and grow.

    James 1:19 says, “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.”
    Matthew 7:1-2 says, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
    1 John 4:21 says, “And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.”

    Pastor is not there to judge us, only encourage us to meet our goals and responsibilities.

  10. THE GUILT OF DOING WRONG

    14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
    15 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
    16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

    Guilt and fear are natural emotions for doing wrong. We read here that Herod lived his life in a sense of fear; always looking over his shoulder, hearing of the miracles, Herod was afraid that John had been resurrected and was there to haunt him. However as we now know it was the same Spirit of GOD that empowered John the baptist was now empowering the disciples.

    We learn here the wisdom of walking with JESUS and walking in the Spirit of JESUS. We are able to avoid guilt and fear and walk in favor and faith through fearing GOD more than man. We also learn of the fearful torment that comes along with disobedience and sin.

    If we live our lives above reproach and sin, and commit ourselves to do the will of GOD we find ourselves with no need to fear past wrongs.

    Live for GOD and do not harm or take advantage of people.

  11. No name fame

    Mark 6:13-14 (KJV Strong’s)
    ” 13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.”

    In the King James Version the words of him are not there. Really it should read like this

    Mark 6:13-14 (KJV Strong’s)
    ” 13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed. 14 And king Herod heard; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.”

    I think this is more accurate in context. The disciples were doing mighty works of God, casting out demons, and healing people. Yet Herod didn’t hear about the individuals. He heard this was being done.

    Why? The name of Jesus was being spread abroad.

    True apostolic revival produces No name fame, or rather one name fame, Jesus!

    It’s not about getting out name in lights, or having a fancy title. When we all do the works of God people don’t recognize us they recognize God.

    John 10:37-38 (KJV Strong’s)
    ” 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.”

    Doing his work doesn’t reveal us, it reveals him.

  12. 11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

    12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

    13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them

    We suffer persecution for His Namesake. Not everyone is going to receive the Truth with open arm. We were charged with the Great Commission. We spread His Word. Whosoever will not receive us we just shake the dust off and keep going. God will deal with them. We have bigger fish to fry. 🙂

  13. 5. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

    6. And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

    God will not be idle; He is going to be doing great things for someone. If we don’t have the faith that He will do them for us, He will do them for someone else. Let’s not miss out on what He would do for us, let’s increase our faith and watch Him work in our lives!

  14. Are you ready for your miracle?

    56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

    Like the woman with the issue of blood these people were wanting their miracle. They reached out to get it. It says that as many that reached got their miracle! Sunday night pastor spoke of the man at the pool of Bethesda. He said that he didn’t want it bad enough because of where he was. Just being in the area doesn’t get the miracle. You have to be expectant AND willing to take a risk to get it. The man with the withered hand took a risk. The woman with the issue of blood took a risk. The people on the street who touched his clothes took a risk. The blind who called after Jesus took a risk. Why don’t we take a risk? Our miracles are waiting. Our faith is what causes the miracle to happen. When we demonstrate our faith we take action and prove that we have faith and are ready to receive the miracle.

  15. 49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

    50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

    51 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

    When the world that I’ve been
    Living in collapses at my feet
    And when my life is all tattered and torn
    Though I’m wind-swept, I’ve been battered
    I’m gonna cling unto His cross
    I’ll find peace in the midst of the storm
    (Is that alright?)

    There is peace in the midst of the storm-tossed life
    There is an Anchor, there is a rock to build my faith upon
    Jesus Christ is my vessel so I fear no alarm
    He gives me peace in the midst of the storm

    Today, Jesus you will save me, and give me the peace that is needed!

  16. Taking five loaves and the two fish looking up to heaven he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people . He also divided the two fish among them all. The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand

  17. 2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

    3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

    4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

    5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

    6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

    It didn’t matter what the people heard or even saw, they were trapped in their own thinking of who jesus was. They couldn’t see the truth of Jesus through their clouded reasoning. The proverbial box they put jesus in robbed them of any miracles they needed. It stopped the supernatural from advancing. We need to check our own unbelief and like the man with the possessed son we need to cry out for him to help our unbelief.

    Mark 9:24
    ” And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”

  18. It’s in the message not the messenger.

    Mark 6:3
    ” Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.”

    People will often fail to heed the advice of someone they do not respect. The overweight man can’t talk about fitness, the harlot can’t talk about purity, etc.; this is absurd.

    It is a misconception that we must experience something or prove something in order to give council on it. If that’s true, how can Christ give council on marriage or raising kids? He did neither in the flesh. We know, however, that his advice is better than all.

    We must remember that the message given is always more important than the person giving it. God doesn’t always use the people we think he should. He used a donkey, he used an adulterer(David), and all the misfit apostles before their knowledge of Christ.

    Don’t miss a blessing BC of an opinion of the messenger.

  19. 34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

    There are many people in this world seeking to feel something they have never felt before, and we as Christians must go out and reach those people and bring them into the presense of God.

  20. 7, “And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;”
    12, “And they went out, and preached that men should repent.”
    13, “And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.”

    30, “And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things both what they had done, and what they had taught.”
    31, “And he said unto them, COME YE YOURSELVES APART INTO A DESERT PLACE, AND REST A WHILE: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.”

    The disciples went out to minister to the needs of others. They preached repentance, cast out devils, anointed with oil those that were sick and healed them. When they were done, they gathered themselves unto JESUS, and he said, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while.”
    Just like the disciples, no matter what part of ministry we find ourselves in, we also need to come to JESUS and find a place of REST. We need a REFRESHING in our lives, and the only place we are going to find it is in JESUS, which is the Holy Ghost, which is our REST.

  21. 11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

    We can help those who want to be taught salvation. It’s no surprising that some will not welcome the gospel.

  22. And because of their unbelief, he couldn’t do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them. (‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭5‬ NLT)

    If you have faith and believe that Gid can do it then he’ll do it.

  23. Perception

    48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

    49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

    50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

    If we are not careful, we can witness Jesus walking through the midst of our storm and mistake Him to be something bad. The hand of the Lord does not always work in ways that the carnal mind will perceive as good. But through the eyes of faith, we can travel past places of the unknown and follow Jesus as He leads us on through the storm to the other side.

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

  24. 41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

    42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

    43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

    Not only is God going to provide all that we need but he will make sure we are full of blessings and still have much leftover!

  25. “For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.” They had witnessed many miracles, just as many have today, however because of their own thinking/reasoning there was doubt. There are many more miracles that will take place if one will simply believe and not allow situations, circumstances or carnality to harden ones heart. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  26. 34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things

    COMPASSION-to be moved as to one’s bowels, hence to be moved with compassion, have compassion (for the bowels were thought to be the seat of love and pity)

    We shall be like Jesus have compassion over everybody and not exclude anybody because NOTHING is to hard for Jesus 🙂 Thank You Lord for your love and mercy!!!!

  27. 52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

    This reminded me of pastors message Sunday. Pastor said its a heart issue. We cannot allow our hearts to be hard to the things of God. Breakup the follow ground! When your heart is hardened you will miss the miracle that is right in front of your eyes.

  28. Because John had said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him, but she could not; (‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭18-19‬ NKJV)

    Don’t get mad when the preacher says the truth. They preach to teach us so that we won’t go to hell. Thank you for valuable lessons.

  29. 41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

    42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

    43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

    I think often when people look at this verse, they think about how God will increase what the material things they have many fold, which he will and can do…. but do you sometimes feel like spiritually, that you only have a couple fish and a few loaves when God is asking you to feed a multitude of people?

    The devil will make us believe we do not have the spiritual experience or authority, that we are spiritually lacking. Like we do not even have enough to feed our own spirit nonetheless help out the people around us who are suffering and need some encouraging, or they need to be prayed for. But these are lies from the devil.

    If you give what “little” you have and give it to God, all you have to tell him is to work with what you have. God will take it and he will multiply your spiritual gifts, he will give you more than enough to allow you to take it and use to serve and help other people.

    Remember no matter how little you think you can make a difference with what you have, God can take it and can take you to greater places, allowing you to be a blessing in the lives of your own community! Don’t be ashamed of what you have, take to it God and allow him to work through you to the poor you know and watch as God shifts the atmosphere around you!

  30. 55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.
    56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

    The miracles are all around us.

    Let the church bring in those that need a touch. We have the power. The Holy Ghost. Yet we don’t see these things as much as we should. We have seen them in our own church. Yet we still have a hard time believing. Why? Fear, doubt, unbelief, pride. All these things can hinder a miracle. We must first check ourselves to see if we are good. Let it start with me.

  31. Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things. (‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭34‬ NLT)

    Compassion  – 
    to be moved as to one’s bowels, hence to be moved with compassion, have compassion (for the bowels were thought to be the seat of love and pity)
    I ask for more compassion for the sheep.  The joy of your salvation will cause me to go teach.  I must teach to make disciples. 

     Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. (‭Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭12-13‬ KJV)

    So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. (‭John‬ ‭21‬:‭15-17‬ KJV)

  32. 12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

    13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
    Today it is a privilege to know that the same power the apostles had is here today! The same power to cast out the devil and heal are still in operation today. Let’s allow God to use us as he used the apostles back then!

  33. Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family.” (‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭4‬ NLT)

    It’s sad that a stranger will listen to Gods voice through a prophet than their own family and friends. Trust is very rare to come by nowadays….

  34. 20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

    Preaching..
    Even an unsaved, heathen king, seemed to have belief, respect and fear for a man of God. And heard him gladly..yet many times in today’s church we don’t like what we hear being preached through the man of God and reject the word that The Lord is trying to give us.  

    1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

  35. The Carpenter!!!! 1. And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. 2. And when the Sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? John 6 : 42 3. Is not this the carpenter, the son of Ma’-ry, the brother of James, and Jo’-ses, and of Ju’-da, and Si’-mon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. I HONOR YOU LORD !!!!! YOU ARE WORTHY !!!!!

  36. Who are you?

    3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

    4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

    The definition of who you are will change throughout your walk with God. As you change and move farther from your old life and farther from who you used to be it becomes harder and harder for the ones that knew you before you started on you journey to see who you are really becoming and who you are now. It is too hard and almost impossible to tell someone how you have changed and them truly understand but when the time is right God can reveal himself through you and when this happens you are not judged by who you are anymore but rather by who he is. We have to be on Gods time to reach those from our past. When we decrease and he increases then our identity starts to change. If we put on the Word of God everyday soon all they will be able to see is God.

    If we truly want to reach our families and friends we have to become Jesus.
