Mark 15 | King on a Cross

Mark 16 | The Grave Could Not Hold Him

Mark 10 | Walked Away Sorrowful

Mark 9 | Putting God in a Box….OUR Box

Mark 9:48-50 -  “Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.” “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad...
