Scripture Passages: Mark 5:21-42.
The purpose of today’s message was to help answer the question, “how can we know we are saved?”
Read the passage again.
- The grace of salvation.
The woman who approached Jesus hadn’t been able to worship at the temple for 12 years because she was unclean, had spent all of her money trying to get better, and Jesus was now her only option. We as people are desperate for the grace of God.
- The faith of salvation.
We have to believe that God is who he says he is and will do what he says he will do. We can look to Scripture to see that belief and faith in Jesus is key. Scripture to look at: John 14:6, Hebrews 11:6, Romans 10:9-10
- The life of salvation.
We are saved FOR something. The power of Jesus is that he makes unclean things clean. He is the only one who has the power to do that. Jesus looks at us liked he looked at the little girl and said, “arise.”
- Do you know the saving love and grace of Jesus? What does salvation mean to you?
- What are you hoping that Jesus will do for you this weekend?
- Is there someone in your life you who you are burdened for that doesn’t know Jesus? How can you love them in the Gospel? Pray for them.
