A Broken Family (Mark 2:13–3:35)

In this week’s passage, we see stories of people rejecting Jesus, and a lot of people being saved into Jesus’ new family. To everyone who calls on Jesus’ name for help, we see Jesus healing them, giving them rest, and forgiving their sins. And Jesus’ church the same today: it’s filled with broken people who have called on his name because they need his help. But it’s a great comfort that the onus isn’t ultimately on us to do what only Jesus can do: heal broken hearts, give true rest, and forgive sins.
