Pastor Matt Tarr
– Scripture: Mark 2:1-12
– What is mankind’s greatest need? This sermon focuses primarily on this question. The world system has made every attempt to determine the answer through psychology and other means, but their conclusions are hardly biblical. As Christ heals the paralytic in the Gospel of Mark, we come to understand that humanity’s greatest need is not good health, success, or even self-esteem; it’s the forgiveness of sins. Mankind needs salvation. It is a need that only Christ can fulfill, because He is God. But the fix is one that draws nothing but the ire of worldly men.
