What if What We Ask For is Not Always What We Need? (Mark 2:1-12)

Tim Cain, July 22, 2017
Part of the Mark series, preached at a Saturday Evening service

All of us have something in life that we are longing for. Something that we think “If only this would happen then everything would be OK.” Often we go to God and plead with him to give us our “If only” only to find that he doesn’t seem to be listening. Well, tonight we will look at the book of Mark at a man who came to Jesus longing to be able to walk again. However, instead of giving this man what he wanted the first thing that Jesus did for this man was to give him the thing that he needed the most. What if that is what God wants to do for us? What if the reason that sometimes we don’t get everything we ask for is because God's plan is actually to give us something better? These are some of the questions we are going to address tonight as we look at Mark 2:1-12.
