SERIES: Exploring Mark

Outside the Box

February 7, 2021

by Jeff Metzger


It was different. It was incredible. No one ever saw anything like it before. No one had ever heard
anything like it. It was new. Jesus shattered expectations. He didn’t fit in anyone’s box. And that was a
big problem for some little leaders who loved to live in their little boxes. God was doing something new,
and they just didn’t get it. Conflict flowed from their ignorance and fear.
Big Idea: Better to lean on who we believe in rather than what we believe.
