Beware!

Sermon Scripture:  Mark 12:35-40 BEWARE of those who miss the Messiah. BEWARE of those who show but don’t know. BEWARE of those who seek titles other than child of God. BEWARE of those who seek honor as opposed to living honorably. BEWARE of those who prey on God’s sheep. BEWARE of those who talk to God from a distance. BEWARE of becoming one of those you need to beware of! What the Lord requires of us:  “…do justice, love kindness,…

The Two Main Issues

Sermon Scripture:  Mark 12:28-34 While the politicians were arguing, a seeker of truth had an honest question. Jesus didn’t bring new wisdom to an old answer.  He brought new action to old instruction.

Voting Jesus simplifies our life’s agenda as there is only a 2 point plan.  Love God…

Because of His Power

Sermon Scripture:  Mark 12:18-27 Mark 12:18-27 Deuteronomy 25:5-10 What will the resurrection be like? Will we look the same? Will we sound the same? Will we know the same people? Will we be married?

God made it all (Genesis 1:1) God destroyed it all (Genesis 6) God loved it all (Genesis 1:31, John 3:16) I vote Jesus means… We are ALL His We believe…

Sermon Scripture:  Mark 12:13-17 Do you listen to the correct advice? Do you know the candidates? Do you question the candidates with a pure heart? Do you follow the correct candidates? Do you marvel at Jesus? When we give to Christ what is His, we have clarity. Even clarity about politics.

The Entrance of the Adversary

Scripture:  Mark 11:20-33 We must be prepared for the enemy “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1 “For with the heart one believes and is justified.”  Romans 10:10 “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”  James 5:16 “…if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”  Colossians 1:13 We must know the…

The Entrance of the King

Scripture:  Mark 11:1-19 The King is welcomed in The King cleanses The King establishes Lordship The King is feared and worshiped The second step in the Exit Strategy is the entrance of Jesus as King!

The Entrance of Light

Mark 10:46-52 Bartimaeus was trapped In the dark Bartimaeus was lost in an environment without relief Bartimaeus had hope because of what he heard Bartimaeus exited his trap by receiving the light The exit from darkness is made possible by the entrance of light.

Emotionally Charged

Mark 10:32-45 Following Jesus causes mixed emotions. Philippians 1 – Paul is filled with joy in chains Mark 4 the disciples are scared if a guy came in casting out a demon how would you feel? James and John showed courage. They ask for an answer before they ask the question They ask for it all They look Jesus in the eye and say, “yes, I can take it.” The other 10 showed anger. 1 Corinthians 13:4 – love is…
