In this episode of Biblical Talks, we discuss Mark 6:30-44 New Living Translation.This passage shows the gracious provision of Jesus of Nazareth. And how he feed the multitude–five thousand men and their families. Furthermore, we see His deep sympathy and compassion for those who made the choice to follow Him. Thus, He would meet one’s physical and spiritual needs. Because Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd.
In this episode of Biblical Talks, we discuss how Jesus of Nazareth gives life to dead things. And most people know what it feels like to have life hit you with real problems. No doubt, those problems for some, leave them desperate for a solution. But whether you believe it or not, Jesus is the answer to every problem. Without a doubt, when Jesus is your Lord and Savior, you can trust Him to help you in difficult times.
Moreover, trusting Him with your troubles is the best thing you could do. Only then, can a person go from death to life and an impossible situation becomes possible.
With that in mind, the demon-possessed man is one example of a hopeless situation. He cried out to the one who he knew could deliver him from a dead situation –Jesus of Nazareth.
Now, here are a couple questions for you. Have you read about how Jesus healed the demon-possessed man? If so, what are your thoughts? If you haven’t, no worries, we’ve got you covered.

Receive your Free Gift of Salvation – The Gospel of Jesus Christ
If you are reading this, it is not by chance. This is your time to receive the Gift of Salvation through Christ Jesus.
Now, you may be wondering, “Why do I need that?” Oh, I’m so glad you asked. The Bible says, that because
And ultimately, Adam’s sin brought death and death spread to everyone.
No doubt, you may be thinking, “Of course, everyone is going to die.” But, my question to you is “Where will you spend eternity?” Because there is life after death. In fact, when you die you go to one of two places — heaven or hell.
Also, it is important to understand that, Adam’s sin also brought an eternity in hell. But for those who choose not to receive the free gift of eternal life. Thus, you must make that choice before you take your last breath.
“For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
“8 …“The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:
9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I ask You to forgive me. I want to follow You, Jesus. I believe in my heart that God raised you from the dead. By faith, I receive You, Jesus Christ, and your gift of grace. Come into my heart, into my life, and be my Lord and Savior.

Grace, grace, grace — when you hear that word, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Well, the grace I am speaking of is the grace of God. But, why is His ‘grace’ of the utmost importance? Better yet, why should it matter to me? That my friend is an excellent question. Hence, this podcast episode, titled This is GRACE.
So, before we go any further, take a moment to look back over your life. Mainly, think about the mistakes you made, whether intentional or unintentional. No doubt, some mistakes were small, whereas others were doozies. But God had grace for it all. Moreover, His grace is available even now.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation].
To begin with, I have a question for you to ponder. When was the last time you turned down an invitation? No matter what it was — you chose not to attend or accept it. I’m pretty sure, the answer to that question is a resounding yes. And how do I know that to be true? Because I have done so myself. Now, the invitation I’m talking about — if accepted, guarantees eternal life.
You are invited
It is possible, that you have never thought about where you will spend eternity. Or you don’t believe in life after death. Well, I must ask you this question if you are of the latter group. Are you willing to gamble with your eternity? Either way, if you are still reading this blog post, don’t let this moment pass you by. If you are willing to accept it — Jesus of Nazareth has extended the invitation for eternal life to you.
In general, no one is exempt from problems. No doubt, those challenges vary in degrees of difficulty. Moreover, for some people, their problems overwhelm them to the point of hopelessness. Why? Because, when one feels as if they are always fighting battles from day to day, it can take a toll on their mind and spirit. And it is in those times of weakness that the thoughts of suicide have overtaken many. But there is another way. Hence, this episode — STRONG in the LORD: A Fight to the Finish.
