The Way of the Kingdom Part III: Cutting Limbs (Mark 9.42-48)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
The watered-down Jesus of our culture has changed the message of discipleship and what disciples are responsible to do in light of their new identity. Jesus reminds us of the seriousness of sin, what we are to do in light of our sin, and the consequences of sin.

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 Seed of Death (James 1.13-15)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: James
Sermon Info:
We’ve all heard the common saying, “the devil made me do it.” No doubt there is some truth to that, especially when we consider Satan as our tempter. But James would like to remind us that our temptation to sin comes from within as well as it comes from without. It comes from our desires and our desires gives birth to total destruction. How can we be delivered from this devastating end?
