...#2. How does vv19-20a connect with Jesus’ earthly ministry? Note- St. Peter is traditionally understood as St. Mark’s primary source. See Mark 1:21-28, 32-39, 3:13-15, 22-30 6:7, 12-13, 5:1-20, 7:24-30, 9:14-27, 16:9, 17. See also Genesis 6:1-4

By the way, our Wednesday Sermon and Series is...
Intercession (02.24.2021)
Moses interceeded for the Israelites and Aaron, who were sin-sick from the golden bull calf incident. We do the same for one another.

Crew
When God's Church works together as a crew, not passengers, stowaways, or pirates, good things happen.

You can catch our Wednesday service videos and sermoncast

Sunday's Sermon
For the Sake of
Jesus’ cross is how we make sense of holiness; it’s the fullness of holiness.

Current Series:
Everyday Holiness
It is good for the world to encounter holiness in the lives of the saints. By the way, it’s also a team sport.

...#1.  St. Paul uses the word gospel 10 times in 1 Corinthians (1:17, 4:15, 9:12, 14, 16, 18, 23). How do 1:18--2:5 frame the gospel? Review the Formula of Concord ch. V, in both the Epitome (summary/abstract) & the Solid Declaration (full explanation; esp. paragraph 22). How does this clarity shine light on vv19 & following above?

...#4.  Notice how Jesus heals folks personally & individually (vv23, 31-34). What makes you think he’s too busy for you? What does he desire for you & your burdens? What burdens are you withholding from him? See Mark 8:34, 9:35, 10:43-45; Matthew 11:28-30; John 3:16; Hebrews 2:17-18, 4:14-16

...#1.  What is the point of the so-called “messianic secret” whereby Jesus prevents others from “testifying” to his powers (v24)? In other words, how do we ultimately recognize his power? See 1:34, 40-45, 3:11-12, 4:11, 7:31-37, 8:22-30, 9:2-9, 10:45, 15:33-39; see also John 6:25-27, 16:13; Small Catechism: Creed II available <bookofconcord.org>

Sunday's Sermon
The Hallmark of Holiness
That we turn away & return to God is the one-day-at-a-time, practical foundation of doing holiness

...#3.  Do these first disciples say a “sinner’s prayer”? Make Jesus the king of their hearts? Decide that he’s their personal Lord & Savior? Read the color-coded “Wordless Book”? What’s another name for this compelling spirit of Jesus? See John 15:16-19, 26; Romans 8:15-16
1 Corinthians 12:3; Small Catechism: Creed III, available <bookofconcord.org>
