Sermon: It’s time for change. If not now, when?

Everyone has a choice to make today…

  1. You can choose to live for yourself, or
  2. You can choose to die to self and live for Jesus.

Everyone is in one of these two camps.

It's time for change!The word “die” is not negative here! Jesus speaks about this in John 12:2-25 (NIV), “Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” Just like a grain of wheat must die in order to bear many fruit, we must die to ourselves and live for Jesus in order to spread the Gospel and bear fruit for His kingdom.

Road Rules: Life Changing Faith (Mark 10:46-52)

This is the fourth sermon in the “Road Rules” series. We have been going through chapter 10 of the Gospel of Mark and discussing different conversations of Jesus. In these moments, Jesus gave us some life principles. You could call these life lessons or rules for the road. To view the first three sermons and learn about Rules 1, 2 and 3, visit our website pages below.

  1. Road Rules: The Gift (Mark 10:13-16 – The Little Children and Jesus)
  2. Road Rules: Surrendering Our Security Blanket (Mark 10:17-31 – The Rich Young Ruler)
  3. Road Rules: The Path Rarely Taken (Mark 10:32-45 – The Request of James and John)

Today’s lesson and Road Rule #4 is found in the story about the blind beggar named Bartimaeus and his life changing faith. Blind Bartimaeus was sitting by the road begging when Jesus and His disciples, along with a crowd of people, walked by. When Bartimaeus realized it was Jesus, he began shouting to Jesus and asking for mercy. Many people told Bartimaeus to be quiet, but he shouted more! In verse 51, Jesus said to the blind man, “what do you want me to do for you?” Bartimaeus had a lot of faith in Jesus and the courage to ask for it all. He asked to be able to see. Jesus answered him, “your faith has healed you.” It was God’s will that Bartimaeus receive his sight. God responds to faith. This leads us to Road Rule #4: Faith Produces Miracles.

God’s word tells us in 1 John 5:14-15, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” There’s nothing wrong with asking for it all! The problem is that sometimes we don’t ask at all.

Road Rules: The Path Rarely Taken (Mark 10:32-45

This is the third sermon in the “Road Rules” series. We have been going through chapter 10 of the Gospel of Mark and discussing different conversations of Jesus. In these moments, Jesus gave us some life principles. You could call these life lessons or rules for the road. To view the first two sermons and learn about Rule 1 and Rule 2, visit our website pages below.

  1. Road Rules: The Gift (Mark 10:13-16)
  2. Road Rules: Surrendering Our Security Blanket (Mark 10:17-31)

Today’s lesson and Road Rule #3 is found in a dialogue that Jesus had with James and John. In this conversation, James and John had an ambitious request. They asked for positions of power and prominence – to sit on the left and right side of Jesus in His kingdom. Jesus then teaches them and teaches us about true greatness.

A few observations from Mark 10:32-45:

  • Greatness comes with a price (verse 38)
  • Greatness works without guarantee (verse 39-40)
