Bible Story:

Mark 9:14-29

Jesus’ disciples tried to cast out an evil spirit from a young boy, but they could not. The young boy could only be saved by Jesus. We are all like the young boy, in desperate need of rescuing and we can only be rescued by Jesus.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
