Preparing for Worship: January 29, 2017
Text: Mark 3:13-19
Title: “An Enormous Statement”
Because of sin, the natural mind is trapped in a proud blindness. For proud people, sin (an enormous issue according to Scripture) seems like a small issue. For proud people, decisions and choices that represent enormous consequences are often treated lightly. In the case of proud people, statements from God that represent great significance regularly fall on deaf ears.
In our verses this week, we will see the Lord Jesus choose twelve common men and name them apostles. The choices He made communicate an enormous spiritual statement. That statement was lost on the religious leaders of the day, but it must not be lost on us.
- THE CALLING (v. 13)
