Needs Fulfilled  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 1: 14–20

He encounters us, accepts us immediately and summons us to follow him.

Able and Willing  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 1: 40–45
Summary: While God is clearly able to do anything, he is not always willing to do everything. When we pray, “Lord, thy will be done,” we concede that, perhaps, God will not act in ways that we think best. There is never any legitimate excuse for disobedience, even experiencing the miraculous. When the Lord’s directions are clear, we must not deviate from them, no matter how attractive the detour.
