Mark 3, “A Motley Crew” 


 Have you ever met someone you really didn’t like, that you really didn’t get along with?  Maybe a co-worker or neighbour you couldn’t stand?      Maybe a classmate in school? Perhaps even a family member?  Maybe even somebody at church?!?

            I think if we’re honest most of us have crossed paths with at least one person we couldn’t really stand.  Sometimes we are around them for a long time, sometimes it’s a short time, but I think we’ve all been there.

            Now imagine you had to travel with that person.  Imagine you had to travel with them for a couple months, eating together, working alongside one another, all day every day!  Wouldn’t that be awkward?  Maybe it would even be unbearable!

            But what if during that time together you both had an experience so powerful it transformed who you were at the core of your being?  What if your shared experience was transformative of your very character? And over that time together you began to soften toward the other person. Imagine you even came to care for that person deeply and go out of your way for them! Maybe you still didn’t agree with their politics, or their personal habits. Maybe you didn’t come to “like” them as a friend, but you came to the point where you would sacrifice for them!  This is what happened with Jesus’ disciples.  Let’s take a look.
