Lord of the Sabbath: Mark 2:23-28

Lord of the Sabbath Mark 2:23-28 Unregenerate Hearts Cause Us To: I. Erect Religious Systems. (26-28) In our passage, we see the continuing effects of un-regenerate religion. That is, religion that is built and defined by people who have not experienced the new birth; their natures have not been supernaturally changed. This is what the scribes and pharisees did, they e...

The Call of Sinners: Mark 2:13-17

(v. 13) Already, over and and over we see the emphasis of teaching/preaching in our texts in Mark (see 1:14, 21, 37, 2:2, 13). Pray that we would long to hear the voice of God through teaching. Discuss how Christ, even though we do not have an outline of every one of His sermons, teaches us the lesson that we hear God speaking to us through this timeless ordained means ...

The Authority to Forgive: Mark 2: 6-12

Mark 2:6-12 We started by remembering that Christ had just declared this broken hearted man's sins forgiven. We saw that this man and his four friends were declared to have faith. Yet, in particular, it was the paralytic that was declared to be forgiven. Tragically, in our current text we see something very different going on the hearts of other people who also were there...

The Priorities of Ministry; Mark 1:35-39

The priorities in our text are the same one's we see in Acts 6:4 We opened by talking about the difference between "saying prayers" and "praying". "If you do not pray alone, you do not pray at all. I care not whether you pray in the street, or in the church, or in the barrack room, or in the cathedral: but your heart must speak with God in secret, or you have not prayed....

Jesus our Helper: Mark 2:1-5

The Bible declares that God is our Helper. He is the one who can truly help us in our greatest need. Often people think of God as not very present in our current affairs, rather removed and aloof, having left us to kind of fend for ourselves. If God does help at all, He tends to "help those who help themselves." Even for Christians, sometimes the dangerous temptation is to...

The Popularity of Christ; Mark 1:40-45

In this text we see an example of a specific healing in the ministry of Christ. It was noted that saying to the Lord in prayer, while not necessary to say every time, "if you will," is not an indicator of a lack of faith. How does someone know something if they do not know it? Is it genuine for someone to say they know they are going to be healed if they do not know? Fait...

Who Heals all Your Diseases Mark 1: 29-34

Read: Mark 1: 29-34 I. The Problem. While affirming our need to believe and pray for physical healing, we noted that there are problems with certain healing practices and teachings that we have seen within the evangelical church. Discuss how some of the things that we have witnessed have detracted from what we see in Scripture, have damaged people, and dragged Christ's N...

A Teaching With Authority: Mark 1:21-28

I. The Recognition By His hearers (read Mark 1:2122) What was it that made the scribes teaching non-authoritative? What were the things that made Christ's teaching ring with authority? Please discuss the fact that one of the greatest needs of the church is for believers and teachers to follow in the footsteps of Christ and also speak and preach with authority. Please d...
