Near, part 6: No Problem

Ever been overwhelmed by the size of the task in front of you? You can just imagine the disciples’ hearts pounding as Jesus details the plan(keep in mind, they are still completely shell shocked at His presence….He’s ALIVE!!!!). It’s not enough that He’s alive again…...WOW!! Now He gives them a task….a mission, and says, “repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” Then he says, “You are witnesses of these things.” Gulp. And, here is where we begin to finally understand what “clothed with power from on high” means. He is near as we go far in His name.

From Series: "Near"

This TOTAL 7-week series is centered on the idea that God comes near. He came near. He is near. Our God is a God of connection. He will not allow sin to ultimately separate Him from His people. Jesus’ declaration that launched His public ministry in Mark’s account of the Gospel...14Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;e repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15 is now finding its ultimate validation as Jesus makes His way to the cross. Here He closes the gap. The chasm that exists between God and man, will be bridged. As Calvary comes NEAR, we also get a glimpse of the victory song of EASTER, and rejoice in our own resurrection knowing the reality of an ever-present God for all eternity. Alleluia! Alleluia!
