For Friday 08.24.17

One of my all-time favorite movies is “The Right Stuff” which came out in 1983 and tells the story of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.  Guys like Chuck Yeager, John Glenn, Gus Grissom and Scott Carpenter were deemed to have “the right stuff” to be astronauts back in the day.  NASA calculated that “the right stuff” for astronauts included bravery, stamina, teamwork, good eyesight and the ability to think outside the box.  So, what does this have to do with Sunday you might ask?

We will be looking at a section of the gospel of Mark (1:21-39) that shows us that Jesus had “the right stuff.”  By looking at a day in the ministry life of Jesus, we will see 5 evidences that Jesus had “the (original) right stuff.”  I hope you can read these verses in Mark before Sunday and try to imagine what this day of ministry looked like from the perspective of the 4 brand new disciples who Jesus was traveling with.  Peter, Andrew, James and John had a front row seat to witness Jesus demonstrating that he had “the right stuff” in situations that involved huge crowds of hurting people as well as small groups of friends and family and even one-on-one intimate moments.  Looking forward to sharing this lesson with you on Sunday!

See you Sunday!  BLESSINGS!
