Deny Your Selfie

Mark 8:31-9:1 1. Set the Aperture – Jesus lets in the right amount of light into the disciple’s lives. 2. Out of Focus – Peter’s blurry vision 3. Zoom in – Take a closer look at what it means to follow Jesus.

Double Take

Mark 8:22-30 Mark gives us a double take of Jesus’ ministry. Jesus gives us a double take of instruction. Peter gives us the first and only take on Jesus’ true identity.

Time to Re-Focus

Mark 8:1-21 Compassion is caring for others Faith is belief there will be enough Understanding is knowledge of the perfection of Christ within the broken pieces The Pharisees tested Jesus because they didn’t believe The Pharisees wanted a sign of power Jesus’ answer is compassion The disciples were focused on the physical Jesus says to focus on the Spiritual Conclusion: It is time to re-focus!

The Authority Given to You

Jesus gave the 12 a calling. Jesus gave the 12 instructions. Jesus gave the 12 authority. We have been called by God. We have been given a mission. We have been given an offensive message.

The Truth Hurts

Mark 6:1-6 Jesus taught a Messianic Message. Jesus qualifications were questioned. Jesus was limited by faithless family. Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith.
