The Powerful Choice  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 35–45
Summary: James and John, in requesting seats at the right hand of Jesus, were enamored with power. They viewed the kingdom of God as a place where power would be wielded over people rather than for them. The answer Jesus gave them helps us to know how we should choose to use power today.

A New Kind of King  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 46–52

Blinded Faith  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 46–52
Summary: Bartimaeus’ faith was affected by his physical challenges. He was blind and his faith was blinded. He did not have blind faith, but rather blinded faith. Blinded faith comes from need, from desperation, from pain and struggle and from injury … and Bartimaeus was both injured and desperate. His blinded faith frantically led Bartimaeus to find what Jesus had to give.

By the Side of the Road  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 46–52
Summary: Bartimaeus was sidelined in life by his inability to see. But in encountering Jesus as the Savior came by, he gained his sight, and a new way of life. So can we.

Divorce: Grace, Not Legalism  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: When we consider Jesus’ teaching on divorce, we walk a line between respecting the authority of scripture and acknowledging the pain of a destructive relationship. Our contemporary understanding of marriage differs from the understanding in Jesus’ day. From Jesus’ other teachings, we can affirm that marriage is for people, not people for marriage. The promise of the kingdom of God offers grace, both now and in the future, for those damaged by a relationship.

Mark 10: 17–30 for LFM
Summary: The rich young ruler came to Jesus asking what he needed to do. Jesus showed him that it’s not what we do but rather being a follower that leads to eternal life.

Front Seat, Shotgun!  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 35–45
Summary: In this reading, James and John call “shotgun,” the seat of honor next to Jesus. When the other disciples hear of their power play, they are angry. Jesus responds to them all by challenging their understandings of status and inviting them to follow him away from their ideas of power and glory to a new idea of service and sacrifice. That’s our challenge, too.

Integer Christianity  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 17–31
Summary: Following Jesus wholeheartedly means making our whole life of one piece. That’s not easy to do, for our tendency is to keep things compartmentalized and treat our faith as something separate from other aspects of our lives. Yet Jesus wants access to every part of our lives.

Pick Me!  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 35–45
Summary: When James and John requested seats of honor in the kingdom of God, they had no idea that true greatness in that kingdom belonged to those who carried a cross and those who served others. That’s a lesson we are still learning today.

A Mission, a Movement and an Unreasonable Request  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 35–45
Summary: Jesus is approaching the culmination of his mission on Earth. His disciples, dumbly following along, have no idea, really, what that mission is. Yet they follow. Through their missteps and stumbles, we learn what it is to place ourselves under the discipline of Jesus. In this particular episode, we learn Christ’s truth about power.

The Crowd, the Disciples and the Bellowing Beggar  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 46–52
Summary: With whom do we identify in this story — the crowd, the disciples or Bartimaeus? If we’re honest, we are most like the disciples, or perhaps like the crowd. We need to consider the blind, bellowing beggar as a role model.

The Rule to the Exception  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: We are always looking for a rationale to justify why a particular rule does not apply to us in our given situation. But if moral guidelines and the ethical teachings of scripture do not work in difficult cases, then they have no value at all. In the gospel story for today, Jesus twice reminds his audience -- and us -- about the rule behind an exception, and thereby gives a valuable corrective in matters of faith and ethics.

What God Has Joined Together  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: Divorce is an intensely emotional issue which often places a burden on people that they cannot easily carry. Jesus was as compassionate about those who suffered from divorce as he was about those who were hurting for other reasons. He made it clear that people “on the outside” were not to interfere with a marriage’s natural growth. On the other hand, there are some God-honoring things we can do to help the husbands and wives in our community stay together.

Why Did You Meet?  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: When discussing the nature and the purpose of marriage, the meaning, the wonder and the power of marriage are often missed. When God brings a couple together it is by way of an assignment to learn and to teach love.

Mark 10: 17–30 for LFM
Summary: Fifty years after the story about the rich man in our text, he reflects on that incident and his life. He explains to himself that the decision he made then was the sensible and responsible one. He has always lived that way — not taking serious risks. But he still keeps thinking about his meeting with Jesus.

Summary: Sooner or later, God answers all prayers — but not every answer is in the affirmative. Sometimes the answer is “No.” And sometimes that negative answer is truly what’s best for us.
