Mark 3:1-6

DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE

 

We use an expression when someone is sick in a crowded area. We will ask, "Is there a doctor in the house?" In other words, "Is there a physician available to meet the needs of a sick person?"

When the man with the withered hand went to the synagogue one day, he discovered that, indeed, there was a doctor in the house! The doctor was the Lord Jesus Christ!

 

AWARENESS OF JESUS - Vss. 1-2 - Jesus knew the man was there and that he had a need.

It is comforting to know that Jesus is aware of our needs.

ANGER OF JESUS - Vss. 4-5 - Jesus was being watched to see if He would violate (in their opinion) the law by healing on the Sabbath. Jesus asked if it was legal to do good on the Sabbath.

The silence of those watching indicated the hardness of their hearts. Jesus was grieved and angered.

 

ACTION OF JESUS - Vs. 5 - Jesus healed on the Sabbath, establishing the correctness of doing good to others any day of the week!

 

ARROGANCE OF JESUS' ENEMIES - Vss. 2,6 - They watched Jesus to see if He would heal on the Sabbath. They wanted to accuse Him. The Pharisees, instead of marveling at Jesus' miracle, took counsel to destroy Him!

Mark 3:1-6 etc.

THE FOUR LOOKS

 

We can tell a lot from the eyes of another person. We can spot the look of anger, joy, love, peace, frustration and confusion, to mention a few. In the Gospel of Mark, it says four times that the Lord looked around. We find that He had.

 

THE LOOK OF EXASPERATION (Anger) Mark 3:1-6 (Vs. 5)

Jesus was angered and grieved at the hardness of the Pharisee's hearts.

 

THE LOOK OF EXPOSURE Mark 5:24-24 (Vs. 32)

The Lord exposed the quiet faith of this woman. Sometimes the Lord

will expose our faith so others will be encouraged.

 

THE LOOK OF EMPHASIS Mark 10:17-27 (Vs. 27)

Jesus was making a very important point that what is impossible with

man is possible to God. He looked around to get the attention of

those to whom he was speaking. He used His eyes to make a point.

 

THE LOOK OF EVALUATION Mark 11:11

As God, The Lord evaluated His temple. The next day, he returned to

clean it out. (See Mark 11:15-19) We are the temple of God today.

The Lord has every right to evaluate us. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
