Thomas Bergen (Menno Simons Centre Residence Coordinator) continued his series on Mark with an exploration of the identity of Jesus as The Strong One. Jesus models a strength that is both incorruptible and other-focused. Unlike theĀ self-preserving and self-promoting rulers of this world, God shows strength through the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit. Even strong men of the world such as John the Baptizer or Jim Jones necessarily fall short of Jesus’ example through misunderstanding or overreaching. May God give us the strength to follow Jesus like the Good Shepherd in Isaiah 40:11 by carrying one another’s burdens. [KH & AP]
