The Greatest Thing

Remade bulletin cover

I concluded series “Remade” this weekend at Eastbrook Church with a look at Jesus’ teaching in Mark 12:28-34. “Remade” is the third part of our Gospel of Mark series (see also “The Real Jesus” and “King Coming“).

My message was entitled “The Greatest Thing,” and looked at this central teaching that many of us have encountered before about what the greatest commandment is. In the question, I took us through some key questions:

  • how can we tell if we are growing in love for God?
  • what is love?
  • who really is my neighbor?

You can listen to my message at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow the RSS feed for Eastbrook sermons or follower Eastbrook Church on Twitter or Facebook.

The outline for the message is included below:

  • Jesus’ unique approach to the question
