Rest

This weekend at Eastbrook, I continued our series, “The Real Jesus,” with a message on Jesus as the Lord of the Sabbath, called “Rest.” The main text was Mark 2:23-3:6. The main point of my message was that Jesus is the only one who can bring rest to our souls and, in our restless world, the only one who can bring peace.

You can listen to the message here at the Eastbrook web-site.

The outline for the message is included below:

The Authority of Jesus (Mark 2:23-28)
– The disciples’ action
– The Pharisees’ complaint
– Jesus’ comparison
– Jesus’ assertion

The Concern of Jesus (Mark 3:1-6)
– The concern of the man
– The concern of the people
– The concern of Jesus
– The concern of the religious and political leaders

Two Traps and the Way Out
– The Trap of Legalism: Rigid rules
– The Trap of Antinomianism: Lax living
– The Way Out: The Rest of God
