    Beyond Belief: Beyond Control – Rev. Mike Stallings
    Text: Matthew 14:22-33
    Main Idea: We don’t learn to trust God and then surrender control of our lives. We learn to trust God by surrendering control of our lives to God and finding God to be faithful.
    Topic: Many of us who believe in God have never trusted God enough to surrender control of our lives to God. Step 3 of the 12 steps states “We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over the care of God as we understood Him.” When Peter stepped out the boat to walk on the water he was trusting Christ enough to turn his life over to him. The rest of the disciples stood and watched. And when the waves got big enough even Peter doubted. If we are going to allow God to answer our prayers for healing we will need to surrender control of our lives to God and allow God to heal in God’s way by God’s means in God’s time.

    Lessons By The Lake: No Out Of Bounds In God’s Kingdom – Rev. Mike Stallings
    The issue of Jesus’ authority expands geographically and theologically as he takes his disciples into challenging territory. Some historians suggest that there was a Roman presence known as the Tenth Legion in the region of the Decapolis, their destination. Pheme Perkins writes in the New Interpreters Bible that there was a boar on their official flag. The 2,000 pigs that became the final destination for a legion of demons indicates raising pigs must have been a significant part of the local economy. These details confirm that Jesus’ authority stretched far beyond that of an itinerant rabbi seeking Jewish disciples. Moreover, Jesus clearly had no concern for how his actions would be interpreted by others. He risked becoming ceremonially unclean to travel right into the belly of the Gentile beast to help a man who had been shunned because of his behavior due to an impure or defiling spirit. Jesus engaged the man, healed that which had caused his rejection from the community, then reconnected him with his estranged community. Gentile culture, pigs, tombs, nor impure spirits could create a boundary Jesus couldn’t or wouldn’t cross. Disciples must learn to see past boundaries for the ministry opportunities that lie beyond.
