Sermon Title: Seeing Is Believing

Scripture: Mark 10:46-52

 

This week, Pastor David challenged us to "drop our cloak" and follow Jesus while reminding us that:

  • Salvation Is Available To Anyone Who Calls On The Name Of The Lord
  • Our Salvation In Christ Transforms Our Allegiances On Earth

GOING DEEPER:

  • Why is the cry of Bartimaeus an important connection to the promises of the Old Testament?
  • In what ways does Bartimaeus have a deeper spiritual insight than even Jesus’ disciples (Mark 10:37–38)?
  • Every day, we have to choose to bend our knee before the cross and lay down our cloaks. What “cloak” of this world do you need to throw down? What steps will you take to make sure you don’t pick it back up as you rely on Jesus?

Testimony from Christianity Today Magazine by Zaine Al-Qays

 

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

~ Jude 24–25
