The Way of Getting In

Text: Mark 2:1-22
Rev. John Downs

Everyone loves being “in the know”, having insider information that others may not be privileged to have. Unfortunately, that can trickle over into our life of faith when we take the gospel and are then tempted to add special knowledge or achievement to our understanding of salvation. Today’s passage strongly corrects that errant approach by clearly demonstrating that our position as Kingdom insiders depends solely upon humble, confident faith in Christ.
