Big God. Big Church.

Ryan Rasmussen – First Christian Church in Canton, Ohio

In this series, we will hear from various pastors across the country as they encourage Hope Community Church by explaining how we are part of a bigger picture. We are not alone. Rather, we are in a movement of God that has been growing for thousands of years beyond ethnicity, beyond generation and beyond location. 

  • Big God. Big Church. – God of the Broken (Mark 5:1-20)

Jesus has always had a propensity toward brokenness. 

– Disciples were broken individuals.

– James and John (fishermen)

– Matthew (tax collector)

– Peter (racist)

– Mary Magdalene (prostitute)

Mark 5:1-20

Three things that are true in this story that are also true in your story.

  1. Jesus goes to him. 

– Jesus comes to us.

2.  Jesus heals him.

– Jesus heals us.

– James 5:16

3.  Jesus uses him.

– Jesus uses us.
