#Pressure#Kitchen

Written by cycleguy on July 16th, 2021

President Harry S. Truman is credited with saying one of the most iconic statements made:

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

He reportedly said that in July of 1942 when a member of his war contracts investigating committee objected to his strenuous pace. That saying was his response to that man’s words.

Living with pressure is part of life. Sports. Job. Church. Home. Even leisure brings its own pressure to the table. No one worth his or her salt will go through life without some pressure applied.  Jesus was no different.  He lived His whole life under pressure and scrutiny of those who wanted to see Him fall.  Whether it was the outcast who needed Him in some way; the religious leaders who wanted to pressure Him for His beliefs and practices; his family, or even the seriousness of what He taught, Jesus lived with pressure.

Mark 3 is a perfect example of the type of pressure Jesus faced, all while deciding He would stay in the kitchen. My sermon this Sunday is from that Scripture. I’d like to encourage you to read ahead if you plan to join us in person or via live stream.  And even if it is neither, it still won’t hurt you to read Mark 3. 🙂
