Sermons from January 2018
Mark contrasts the Solid Rock, Jesus, with the crumbling rock, Peter, through Jesus’ “trial” and Peter’s denials. The truth is that if we aren’t solid in our faith through prayer, Bible study and worship, we stand the very real chance of being like Peter in our everyday lives. We betray him daily when we don’t stand for the truth, when we don’t defend Jesus or when we don’t share the gospel.

We look at two people, both close to Jesus, with two different understandings about who he was/is and how to live in light of that- Mary and Judas. We need to be like Mary- all-in no matter the cost to us in time, money, reputation, whatever.
