Blind Bartimaeus

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

This morning we reach the end of the tenth chapter of the Gospel of Mark (Mark 10:46-52) and the last passage before Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem (11:1-11). Today, we meet a blind beggar named Bartimaeus. What we’ll see is that this story isn’t really about a blind man 2,000 years ago. This story is about us, our profound need and Jesus’ amazing grace.

True Greatness II

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

In our section this week, Mark 10:32-45, Jesus gives us another lesson in what it means to be truly great. Its important to point out that Jesus doesn’t offer this lesson because he has more to add to his previous teaching but rather the disciples just weren’t getting it. They needed to hear it more than once – just like us. Today, Jesus teaches us that having a worldview with a God who dies for his enemies at the center changes (literally) everything, especially how we understand what it means to be great.

The Rich Young Ruler

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

This week in Mark 10:13-31, Jesus gives us a lesson on what it takes to enter the kingdom of God. Our hearts must be as a child – helpless, needy, and dependent. The story of the rich young ruler follows as an example. Focused on what he must do to enter the kingdom of heaven, the young ruler is confident in his own works. Jesus, as usual, addresses his heart, and the one thing he holds higher than God. Through this account, we are reminded to be aware of running from God by attempting to work our way to Him, and miss ever knowing God at all.

Marriage and Divorce

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

In our section today, Jesus leaves the region of Galilee and crosses into Judea, the region surrounding Jerusalem. In Mark 10:1-12, he is confronted (again) by Pharisees who are looking to trap him. This time, their trap involves the controversial and much debated topic of divorce. Marriage, divorce, and remarriage in Jesus’ day were matters of controversy, just like in our day. Even though the events described in our passage today occurred 2,000 years ago they could hardly be more relevant.
