The Shepherd’s Feast (Mark 6.30-44)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark

Our God is described in Scripture as a Shepherd (Ps. 23) and as a Shepherd he guides his sheep with teaching and he provides for their daily needs even when living in our modern day wilderness. And he will guide his sheep in a New Exodus through Jesus Christ.

The Rejection of the World (Mark 6.14-29)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
We come to the story of the beheading of John the Baptist. What was the reason for his beheading and how do we see this same hatred and bitterness in the world against the church? This was a precursor of the type of persecution the church would later face and is still facing today. And we don’t want to ignore the same signs of sin running its course in our lives as well.

The Response to Rejection (Mark 6.7-13)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
In her mission, how does the church tend to respond to rejection? As Christians, we tend to let it fester and we eventually become embittered. How does Jesus teach us to approach our mission of spreading the gospel? And what does he call each individual to do?

Life Soli Deo Gloria (1 Cor. 10.14-11.1)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
What does it look like to live for the glory of God? Micah 6.8 says, “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” That is, in a way, what Paul is communicating to this Corinthian church.
