Hitting The Mark

Our church (Northridge Christian In Milledgeville GA) is currently in a series titled Hitting the Mark. The congregation is challenged to study the book of Mark using the S.O.A.P method of studying Scripture developed by Wayne Cordiero.  You can learn more about it here

Mark 2:1-28 

S.O.A.P Notes


They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. 

This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"

"It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

"The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."


When we are truly and accurately imitating Christ, large numbers will be drawn to us! When they come we should teach them the Word!

Our actions will stand out and amaze people!

Get out of the holy huddle and reach out to the sin sick.  Do not be afraid of them or avoid them.

Don't be restricted and bound by traditions that keep you from taking care of business!!


Test for Christ imitator wanna-be's

  1. Are crowds following you wanting what you have?
  2. Are they amazed at the things you do that are different from the norm?
  3. Am I reaching out to the sin sick and loving them into the kingdom?
  4. Am I controlled by the Spirit of God or the traditions of men?
LORD Jesus, please mold me and make me into your image and use me to make a difference in someone's life today.
