Sermon-2015-5-31: The Agony and Triumph of Jesus

  • Title:  The Agony and Triumph of Jesus
  • Text:  Mark 14:32-42
  • Notes:  There are things about God as revealed in His word that are incomprehensible to us.  The word reveals it but our limited minds cannot adequately grasp the glory made known.  One such revelation is the nature of Christ: totally God and totally man.  The agony of Jesus in the garden reveals His humanity.  The triumph of Jesus through the agony—not My will but Your will be done—reveals His divinity.  The response to such revelation is worship.

Sermon-2015-6-07: Confidence in the Word

  • Title:  Confidence in the Word
  • Text:  Mark 14:41-52
  • Notes:  When Jesus taught His disciples to pray He said, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thine name.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  In the Garden of Gethsemane, when facing the certain wrath of God for sin, this is what Jesus prayed: “Not what I will, but what Thou wilt.”  It is this confidence in the will of the Father that we see as Jesus rises up from prayer and faces His betrayer and the multitude come to seize Him.  He makes it clear to them all, His disciples included, that what is happening to Him at their hands is according to the word of God, not men.  God’s plan to finally deal with sin is not man made; salvation comes from God.

Sermon-2015-6-14: Israel’s Trial of the Messiah

  • Title:  Israel’s Trial of the Messiah
  • Text:  Mark 14:53-65
  • Notes:  Jesus is on trial before the religious leaders of Israel.  They believe they are trying a man presuming to be God when in fact they are trying the very Messiah promised to them by God.  There are 3 basic questions: the messiah as Priest, Prophet, and King.  Mark provides the evidence for Messiah as Prophet, and will, as the narrative unfolds, provide the evidence for Messiah as Priest and King.

Sermon-2015-6-21: The grace of God

  • Title:  The grace of God
  • Text:  Mark 14:66-72
  • Notes:  Peter denies his Lord.  After all that we have read about Peter, his strengths and weaknesses, it all comes down to a few hours in the courtyard of the high priest’s home when Peter’s following after the Lord is challenged and he fails.  It would be a tragic end, except for the grace of God through Jesus Christ.
