God of the Living (Mark 12.18-27)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
There are key doctrines of the Christian faith that must be believed in order to claim to be true believers. One of these doctrines is the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead at the end of time when Christ returns. Jesus makes that clear to those who were questioning him.

Godly Distinctions (Mark 12.13-17)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
A common question is, how are Christians to deal with corruption in high places of government? There are many ways you can answer that question. As Christians, we are to remember that we have a dual citizenship (Acts 22:22-29; Phil. 3.20) and a responsibility to both. Now, Jesus’ enemies tried to trap him in this sort of question and he responds to his interlocutors in this same manner to expose their hypocrisy and how they had forgotten their most important duty. God is King of all kings and he is the priority.

The Son and The Stone (Mark 12.10-12)

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.

The Authority of the Son (Mark 11.27-12.12)

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?

The Fruits of Faith (Mark 11.22-25)

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.
