Handling Family Storms

Handling Family Storms

Passage: Mark 3:20-35

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Storm Proof Lives

No family is perfect... although there was one family with a perfect family member... Jesus' family. In Mark 3 we see that although Jesus was perfect, His family was not. The Holy Family was wholly like our families, flawed and subject to intense family storms. In this text we see Jesus' mother and brothers wrongly assess Jesus' sanity and try to take control over Him. As we explore this text, we will be challenged to see that we try to control Jesus as well, remolding him in our image and creating a tamer Jesus who is more in step with our culture. But the real Jesus will have none of this. His true disciples and family are those who embrace who He is and allow Him to change them!
