In this message we will see Jesus and his disciples gathered together for the Passover. Jesus was still the Master, even until the end. He prearranged and prepared, He predicted and proclaimed, He provided and He promised. He indeed was the final Passover lamb that would receive the just wrath of God for the sin of the many.
The stage has been set for the final act in the life and ministry of Jesus before He is crucified. In this message, we will see how those who are close to Jesus respond in powerful acts of both betrayal and beauty. From these events we will learn valuable lessons about our responses to Him as well.
Jesus continues to tell us about the end of the age as we move to part 2 of our mini-series. Jesus tells us about the coming of the “abomination of desolation”: when and how He will come back, and what we are to know and look for as His return draws near.
If you want to know the future, this message is for you! In Mark 13, Jesus explained to His disciples what was to come at the end of the age. From His teaching you will be equipped by knowing what to expect and what you are to do. This chapter is an important road map for the future of humanity. The wise person will take note and take these things to heart. In doing so, you will have perspective, peace and productivity in the work of the Kingdom.
This message will continue to examine questions and observations of Jesus while He was teaching in the temple. From these questions and observations, we can rest assured about the eternal origin of Jesus. We will learn about the trappings of religious leadership and be taught about the value God places on our giving.
The religious leaders were looking to destroy Jesus. They hoped to do so by trapping Him in His word by asking Him controversial and difficult questions. From these questions and Jesus’ answers, we are instructed and informed about paying taxes, the resurrection, and the most important commandment. We will be best served by aligning our lives to these truths.
God and His word has final authority in all things. He has entrusted us to manage His creation according to His will. We have the freedom to follow or be foolish, knowing that each one will give an account to the ruler of all things.
Christ left us an example of how to live our lives. This message, from Pastor Dan Cromer, will focus on the importance of living a life that brings forth fruit, honors God, and impacts eternity.
God has a purpose for everything He has created, including you. In this message, we will learn from Jesus the purpose of His creation, the purpose of His house and the purpose of prayer.
The “triumphal entry” which is typically observed on Palm Sunday has hidden details which, when brought to light, add greater significance to the event of Jesus entering Jerusalem. In understanding that Jesus is the prince of the prophets and the prince of the people you are invited to join in the processional shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” (Mark 11:9-10).
