Sermon Notes from Sunday 8.8.10

Here are the sermon notes from today.  In examining so much and taking the approach I did, my hope was to overwhelm us with the reality that Jesus is God and it matters immensely.  For many of the original hearers, their lives are overwhelmed right now.  A God who is big enough to handle it can also satisfy the deepest longings of our hearts.

As usual, our webmaster extraordinaire will have the audio and these notes in PDF posted soon.  You can find it at

Walk on the Water
Mark 6.45-56

There are two ways to approach this story:  details or arc.

Evidence for Jesus’ claim to be God
  •         “Walking on the Sea” (Job 9.8; Ps. 93.3-4) 
  •         “Pass them by” (Exodus 33.18-34.6)

Objection 1:  He’s not God, nope, no way. 
Objection 2:  He’s one option among many gods.
Objection 3:  He might be God, but who cares?
