Every day 100 million people flock to Twitter to post their thoughts on goings-on in 280 characters or less. The website, which began in 2006, quickly gained popularity because of its ease of use, its quickness in dispensing information, and its appeal to those who want to have a voice.
People like, and even need, to be heard. We want to know that our opinion matters and that what we have to say has value. Social media seems like the perfect place to express yourself and your thoughts to others. Unfortunately, the noise of millions of others drown everything out and instead of contributing opinions we feel are valued, we’re left feeling like we’re just adding to the noise.
In Jesus our need to be heard is fulfilled. Mark 5 follows Jesus as He meets with a few different individuals, and all along the way He listens to them completely (6-13), urgently (24), and with compassion (33-34). Jesus still listens to us like this today and then some!
Come hear how Jesus fulfills our need to be heard and what makes His listening so special this Sunday morning at 10:30 at the Mannford Church of Christ.
