Old Vineyard New Wine

This week Alan shot from the hip and called an audible on the sermon.

Entering the Kingdom

Mark 10:13-31

Have faith like a child not like a rich man.  That is the core of our time in this teaching.  What does the grace of God through faith bring but joy to the heart of the believer?  God's desire is for people to have humble dependence upon the LORD and not arrogance in their own effort and works like the rich man.

Subtracting Division

Subtracting Division

Mark 9:42-50

This week we conclude the Jesus' discussion with the disciples after they spend this part of their journey discussing and arguing about who is the greatest.  Jesus puts an end to the divisive talk and gives them a new direction, peace with one another.

You Follow Me!

You Follow Me!

Mark 9:38-42

This week we more deeply understand what was going on with John trying to stop the man who was healing the demon-possessed man and hear Jesus' appeal for His disciples to simply follow Him instead of worrying about others.
