On Sunday, February 9, Pastor Chelsey continued our series from Mark, “Who do you say I am?” with a message from Mark 6.45-52 (Jesus walks on water). You can hear that sermon on our current series website (or in the archives). One of the strong images in that passage is the disciples straining at the oars, trying very hard on their own to make it to the other side of the sea against an adverse wind. While they are straining, Jesus is aware of their struggles, as he spends the evening praying on a mountaintop.
Today, busyness and being in a hurry can be our way of ‘straining at the oars.’
