Ten Looks at Jesus: The Triumphal Entry

Today we look at Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. In the Book of Isaiah 50:7, the prophet described the suffering Messiah as setting his face like flint. It was an expression of Jesus’ unwavering determination to suffer and die for us. Join us as we learn about 3 characteristics of Jesus from this event. We can also be sure that this humble and suffering Messiah will be coming again as a victorious King to whom every knee will bow. As…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Garden Prayer

Gethsemane is about prayer. Why did Jesus pray? What did he pray? And how did God answer His prayer? We learned that God answered “No” to one prayer and “Yes” to another prayer from Jesus on the same night. Because of Jesus’ incredible love for us, he fully drank the cup of the wrath of God so that we would see the glory of God and be with Him in heaven one day. Jesus went out as usual to the…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Transfiguration

In this passage, we read about His transfiguration. This event illustrates 2 points: Who is Jesus and Why did He come into the world? For a brief moment in time, His inner circle disciples witnessed the glory of God shine through Jesus’ humanity. Moses and Elijah were present as a picture that Jesus was the fulfillment of the law and the prophecy. He must suffer for the sin of the people. The Lord of glory would die for those he…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Temptations

Today we look at a passage of scripture that talks about Jesus’ temptations. Were the temptations of Jesus easier than the ones we experience because he did not struggle with sin? What areas were Jesus tempted and how did he respond? How can we overcome temptations based on the examples given to us by Jesus? Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted…

Face2Face: John

Today we explored the experience of the Apostle John when he came face to face with Jesus on the Island of Patmos. What spiritual insights can we learn from his description of Jesus? What is your response to Jesus based on this description? I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. On…

The Light Has Come

The birth of Jesus means the light has shined into the kingdom of darkness in which humans live. In today’s sermon, we explore 3 types of darkness that Jesus’ light has overcome. Which one do you live in? Have you experienced the fact that darkness has not overcome the light? In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made;…

Wise Worshippers

When Jesus was born, many sought him. From King Herod to the wise men, they were all religious, educated, wealthy, wise, and appeared to be seekers of the truth. But sadly, not everyone encountered the new messiah in their heart. What were the barriers? Which one do you compare yourself to? Have you met the savior and worshipped him? After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem…

Could Christ Return Anytime?

When is Christ coming back? How are we to prepare for his second coming? Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. “ 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (NIV)

What Happens When Jesus Returns

What happens after Jesus return? Are you prepared for his second coming? For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the…
The Gospel of Mark

Sent Out by Jesus

In Mark 6:7-13, Jesus sends out the 12 apostles to preach the Gospel of repentance. They were instructed to travel light, trusting in God’s provision, and to travel in pairs, avoiding isolation. We are also part of God’s plan to reach the world. Let us be faithful to our calling, not withholding the truth, so that we can declare with Paul, “I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all (Acts 20:26 ESV).
The Gospel of Mark

Twelve Short Years of Life

Jesus displays His awesome power by raising the daughter of Jairus from the dead in Mark 5:21-43. We can also take hope in the assurance that death has been defeated. Those who believe in Christ immediately go to be with Him at the moment of death, and their bodies will one day be raised when Christ returns.
The Gospel of Mark

Twelve Long Years of Sickness

The woman healed by Jesus in Mark 5:24-34 had spent 12 years living with illness and the isolation of ceremonial uncleanliness. She reaches out to Christ in faith, is healed, and then wishes to slip back into obscurity. Jesus calls her out in order to give her words of encouragement and to take her from timid faith to testifying faith.
The Gospel of Mark

Lord of Demons

Jesus the Son of God, came to our world on a mission of mercy. His miracles reveal His compassion, His omnipotence, and His rescue of us from the powers of sin and darkness.
The Gospel of Mark

Lord of the Storm

The account of Jesus calming the storm at sea in Mark 4:35-41 reveals much about His true identity. Jesus understands what it means to share our humanity as he falls asleep in the boat, exhausted from a long day of ministry and opposition. Jesus demonstrates that He is sovereign over creation as He instantly calms the storm.
The Gospel of Mark

Kingdom Perspective

The disciples had many inaccurate expectations about the Kingdom of God. They wanted Jesus to powerfully crush His enemies and set up a physical kingdom on Earth. In His parables, however, Jesus revealed a very different vision for His kingdom.
The Gospel of Mark

Jesus’ Family

Our salvation comes by faith in Christ alone, but the validating mark of the believer is a life of increasing obedience to the word of God. It is not enough to merely listen to the teachings of Christ. We must obey His Word as revealed in Scripture confessing our sins when needed. Jesus said that His redeemed, eternal family members are those who listen to and obey His teachings.
The Gospel of Mark

The Son of Man

When Jesus refers to Himself as the Son of Man (first in Mark 2:10 and many other times in the Gospels) this title holds deep significance. Son of Man is more than just a proclamation to Christ’s humanity. It is a reference to Daniel’s vision in Daniel 7 of the Son of Man who comes with the clouds of heaven, appears before the Ancient of Days, and is granted authority to judge the nations. Jesus has the authority to forgive our sins immediately, fully, and permanently.
The Gospel of Mark

Following Jesus

Jesus calls His disciples to make a deliberate choice to follow Him personally, closely, humbly, courageously, daily, and publicly. He will enable us to make Him known to others, telling them of His grace.

Christ-centered Community

Colossians 3:15-17 sets forth how we can live Christ-centered, Christ-exalting lives in Christian community. We should live in peace with one another because we have been reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. God’s Word is to dwell in our hearts, and we should teach, encourage and exhort one another. All that we do should honor the name of Christ.

Christlike Virtues

Spiritual clothing matters—we are to clothe ourselves with the virtues listed in Colossians 3:12-14 imitating the character of Jesus Christ before a watching world. We do this because of who we are in Christ: “God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved,” enabled by the Holy Spirit. Our position in Christ serves both as a motivation to display these virtues and also as a source of hopefulness that we will be able to follow Jesus in this way.
