Text: Mark 11:1-11
Title: “The King’s Entrance”

This Lord’s Day we arrive at Mark’s account of the final week of the life, and public ministry, of Christ. In our text we will examine what has commonly been referred to as the Triumphal Entry. On the Sunday before Passover, Israel’s promised king rode into Jerusalem on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Why? We will see that Christ’s approach to the city, riding on a colt, testifies in five ways to Him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Our outline is as follows:

     I. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE KNOWS
     II. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE INSTRUCTS
     III. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE DOES
     IV. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE ALLOWS
     V. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHERE HE ENDS THE DAY

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Always
  2. Jesus is Better
  3. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  4. Come, Lord Jesus

Title: “Gentleness”

This Lord’s Day morning we are focusing on the spiritual fruit of gentleness. What makes the spiritual fruit of gentleness different from natural gentleness? Who is the model for the gentleness that the Spirit of God produces in the Christian’s life? How is this gentleness manifested in a life; that is, what are some practical ways that it is demonstrated? And, finally, what is its mission? As God produces gentleness in His people, how does He use it?

In the PM service we will return to the book of Titus and look at the positive personal character qualities that must be present in the life of an elder.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here:

1. All Creatures of Our God and King
2. Man of Sorrows
3. Shine Into Our Night
4. Trust You
5. Lord I Need You
6. How Great Thou Art

Title: Faithfulness

This Lord’s Day we consider the fruit of the Spirit called faithfulness. Just as we saw last week with goodness, the kind of faithfulness that Paul is referring to is a faithfulness that is not present apart from salvation. We will examine this quality under four basic headings:

     I. THE MEANING OF FAITHFULNESS
     II. THE SOURCE OF FAITHFULNESS
     III. DEMONSTRATIONS OF FAITHFULNESS
     IV. THE PURPOSE OF FAITHFULNESS

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here:

  1. Our Great God
  2. I Will Glory in My Redeemer
  3. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
  4. There is a Fountain
  5. Lord I Need You
  6. Be Still My Soul

     III. HOW IS THIS GOODNESS COMMUNICATED?
     IV. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS GOODNESS?

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

Title: “True Greatness”

Following Christ will mean learning new ambitions. Salvation produces a new ambition—the ambition to please Christ. But sanctification means learning what pleases Him. Following Christ will mean submitting our hearts to a new set of desires. This Lord’s Day, we meet with misguided desires. The disciples display their desire for a kind of greatness that belongs to this world. Jesus teaches them a new desire. Christ teaches them that true greatness is found in loving service, and Christ the Savior is the model. We will see three misguided desires associated with greatness, and one righteous desire that pleases Christ.

     I. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS SELFISH
     II. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS OVERCONFIDENT
     III. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS COMPETITIVE
     IV. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS CHRISTLIKE

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. A Mighty Fortress
  2. How Great Thou Art
  3. Jesus is Better
  4. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  5. Not in Me

Text: Mark 10:32-34
Title: “The Zealous Shepherd”

This Lord’s Day we see the holiness and love of Jesus on display in His zeal for His mission, and His zeal for His disciples. On the way to Jerusalem, Jesus is out front. He zealously marches to the place of His sacrifice. Along the way, He takes time to prepare His disciples for what they will all soon face. He zealously watches over their souls. This passage provides us with the opportunity to consider how we respond to the love and care of our Shepherd for our own souls.

     I. THE ZEALOUS LOVE OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD (v. 32)
     II. THE ZEALOUS CARE OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD (vv. 33–34)

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. New Again
  2. His Mercy is More
  3. Come Lord Jesus

Text: Mark 10:32-45
Title: “Where Sin Dies”

For the third and final time in the gospel of Mark, Jesus tells his disciples in very clear terms about what will happen when he arrives in Jerusalem. He will suffer, be killed, and rise on the third day. That revelation of beauty is met with the ugliness of the disciple’s selfish ambition. This Lord’s Day, as we take a big-picture view of this section, we will recognize three important lessons:

     I. RECOGNIZE THE POWER AND UGLINESS OF MAN’S SINFULNESS
     II. RECOGNIZE THE POWER OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST TO ATONE FOR SIN AND TO OVERCOME SIN
     III. RECOGNIZE THE NEED TO APPLY THIS SCENE TO YOUR OWN HEART

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Psalm 46
  2. Psalm 126
  3. The Solid Rock
  4. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
  5. Jesus Thank You
