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.

The Righteous Live Sola Fide (Rom. 1.16-17)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
How do we attain salvation? How do we have life eternal and be restored to God? How will we ever stand in the presence of God and be considered righteous? Paul answers all of these questions in this famous passage which drove the Reformation into full gear. It is a reminder and something the Church needs to be reminded of today.
