LIFE-CHANGING CARE

LIFE-CHANGING CARE

Pastor Gary Gulbranson

(Mark 2:1-12)

Have you ever brought someone to Jesus?  What was the result of that encounter?

 

We exist as a church…”to LEAD people into loving and life-changing relationships with God and with each other.”  Mark 2:1-12 records an incident in which four men brought their physically broken friend to Jesus.  Jesus offered this friend loving and life-changing care.

 

I find six components of life-changing care in this healing encounter with Jesus.

 

  1. Component #1 – Awareness: What do I see?

 

  1. Component #2 – Acknowledgement: What do I know?

 

III. Component #3 – Advocacy:  What will I do?

 

  1. Component #4 – Acceptance: Whom will I trust?

 

  1. Component #5 – Appreciation: What will I celebrate?

 

  1. Component #6 – Accountability: Who pays for the roof?

 

Conclusion:  Healing “Godstyle” – Jesus brought forgiveness and wholeness in one package.
