Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: Everyone builds their lives on something (or someone). The religious leaders of Jesus’ day have rejected Jesus not knowing that in their rejection he has become the cornerstone. He becomes the stone of offense and the rock of stumbling for them and the cornerstone of God’s building project, the Church. Who is your most important stone in the building project of your life? You’ll know by answering, how do you respond to God’s word? Acceptance or rejection.
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: The religious leaders of Jesus’ day were questioning his authority after he cleansed the temple. His response would answer two questions, where did he receive his authority? And where did he come from? And this has significance for all of our lives. Have we accepted or rejected Jesus’ authority over us?
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: When Jesus entered the temple, he noticed that the people of God were lacking in fruit. This week we want to answer what are the fruits of faith? Jesus gives us two. Prayer and forgiveness and it begins with a true faith in God. And this is not a generic god or a god that we have made up. But it is the true God in Jesus Christ.
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: When Jesus makes his way to Jerusalem, he goes directly to the temple. And the question that he will be asking is, ‘Will I find faith?’ Well, how can you find faith when you can’t see it? By the fruit that one bears. Do you see fruit on your fig tree?
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: Whenever we read about the Triumphal Entry of Jesus, we tend to forget about Jesus’ destination and the purpose of his entry into Jerusalem. Let us revisit this passage to see what is his ultimate will.
