Sermon Title: A Perfect Meal For Imperfect People 

Scripture: Mark 14:1–25 

   

This week, Pastor David explained that the Last Supper is framed with two home encounters that give us insight into the significance of the meal. The key truths centered around:

 

1.    A Portrait Of True Adoration 

2.    A Portrait Of Lasting Rebellion 

3.    A Portrait Of A Perfect Meal 

 

Going Deeper:    

  • Pastor David said that Mary’s anointing of Jesus was a pure act of love, impractical in every way, showing that there is no aspect of her life she isn’t willing to give to Him. Is there any aspect of your life that you are unwilling to give completely to Jesus? Explain. 
  • We see from Judas’ motivation and actions that proximity to Jesus does not equal intimacy with Him. How can you be sure that you are experiencing true intimacy with Jesus each day? 
  • When Jesus presented Himself as the Passover lamb in the upper room, He was saying that His blood covers the doorpost of every heart that accepts Him. What is your response to the Last Supper—true adoration or lasting rebellion?
  • At the end of worship this morning, Pastor David shared that he wanted us to do two things: #1, run to Jesus; and #2, no matter what we face, go back to #1 (run to Jesus). How can you do this in the week ahead?

Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. ~ Luke 22:3

 

During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him, … Then after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” ~ John 13:2, 27

 

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! ~ John 1:29

 

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:21

 

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. ~ Jude 24–25
