This past weekend at Eastbrook, I continued our series, “The Real Jesus,” with a message on Jesus as the King. Since this series is rooted in the Gospel of Mark, the main text was Mark 1:14-20. The main point of my message is that Jesus is the King over all the kingdoms of this world and over all our lives.
You can listen to the message here at the Eastbrook web-site.
The outline for the message is included below:
King’s Conflict (1:14, 18, 20; Colossians 2:15)
– Rival earthly kingdoms (1:14)
– Rival personal kingdoms (1:18, 20)
– Rival powers and authorities (Colossians 2:15)
King’s Call (1:15)
– Turn – the response of repentance
– Trust – the response of belief
King’s Commission (1:16-20)
– Follow – the focus on Jesus
– Fish – the focus on others
