Over the past two weeks in Sunday School, we have continued our journey through the Gospel According to Mark by discussing Mark 7 together. In the first part of the chapter (7:1-23), Jesus confronts some of the false teaching of the Pharisees and points them to their true problem: the need for cleansing of the heart. Notes and audio can be found here. Then, in the second part of the chapter (7:24-37), Jesus demonstrates His point by bringing healing to “unclean” Gentiles. Notes and audio can be found here.
Two weeks ago, we took a break from our sermon series through Revelation and looked at Ezekiel 14. The text makes clear that God sees even to the depths of our hearts and knows what is there and will call us to account. Our only hope is to be forgiven and cleansed. Notes and audio can be found here.
Then, this past Sunday, we returned to Revelation and looked at Revelation 18:1-19:10. Ultimately, the world and all that is in it will pass away under the judgment of God. Those who love the world will mourn and find themselves with nothing. Those who love God, however, will rejoice and enjoy fellowship with Him forever. Notes and audio can be found here.
