SERMON SEEDS ARCHIVES

MARK

Through no fault of our own, about 5 years of Sermon Seeds was deleted from the Website of the First Baptist Church.

We decided that it was time to begin archiving them in a different way.

Please be patient as we gradually archive these outlines.

_______________________________

MARK 1:35-39 – IN TOUCH!

I have a cell phone. I talk on the cell phone. I text on the cell phone.

I have a computer. I use email on the computer. I use Facebook on the computer.

I do all these things to keep in touch with people.

More important than keeping in touch with those we know and love is keeping in touch with God.  Our Lord Jesus Christ gives us a needed example in this passage. He kept close to His Heavenly Father. He was in touch!

PRIVATE CONNECTION - Vs. 35

  • Jesus was often busy, but Jesus did not neglect his time with God. He did not let an active day and night before (Mark 1:23-34) keep Him from fellowship with God in the morning.
  • Notice that he got up early to be in touch with God.
  • Also notice that he went to a private place.
  • Let us remember that the morning is an important time for prayer. Psalm 5.
  • Let us also remember that as much as possible, we should spend time alone in prayer. Matthew 6:5-6

PERSONAL DIRECTION - Vss. 36-38

  • Peter wanted Jesus to return to minister to the same crowds from the day before.
  • Jesus had spent time with God the Father. He had his directions from God. He moved on.
  • There will always be people who will want to tell us how to spend our time.
  • Remember that time spent with God will help us know what God wants us to do with our time. Psalm 32:8, Ephesians 5:15-17, James 1:5-8

PUBLIC MANIFESTATION - Vs. 39

  • Jesus’ public ministry was proof that He had been with God in private.
  • He preached publicly, cast out demons, and healed the sick. 
  • Our powers to preach, teach, witness, live Godly lives, and serve will only be present if we abide in Him.  We must be in touch! John 15:1-8

______________________________

A LITTLE HELP FROM HIS FRIENDS – MARK 2:1-12

A man sick with palsy needed help getting to Jesus so he could be healed. He got that help and Jesus did not disappoint him.

CLOSE QUARTERS – Vss. 1-2 – Jesus was in a house and the place was full of people. Nobody more could get in.

CHOICE WORDS – Vs. 2 – Jesus preached the Word of God to the audience. There is no better source for help and salvation than the Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Mark 13:31

CONCERNED AND CONFIDENT FRIENDS – Vs. 4 – The man’s friends were so concerned and confident that Jesus would heal their friend that they tore open the roof and lowered the sick man down to Him.

COMFORTING ANNOUNCEMENT – Vss. 5-9 – Jesus first dealt with the man’s biggest problem which was his sin. There were those who were quietly accusing him of blasphemy for proclaiming forgiveness.

COMPASSIONATE HEALING – Vss. 10-12 – He realized it was apparently easier to proclaim forgiveness than to heal. Therefore, in order to prove His authority to heal, Jesus commanded the man to get up and walk. The man did so and the crowd was amazed and glorified God.

_______________________________

DEPLORABLE CONDITION – Vss. 3-5

This man was in total bondage.

TREMENDOUS CONFLICT – Vss. 6-8

OBVIOUS COMPLIANCE – Vss. 9-13

The demons obeyed, left the man, and entered the swine.

The man was a “new creature” in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17

WRONG CONCLUSION – Vss. 16-17

Because they were afraid, they asked Jesus to leave. They concluded that Jesus had to go.

MERCIFUL COMMUNICATION – Vss. 18-20

In spite of their rejection of Jesus, He left them a witness.

_______________________________

MARK 5:21-43 – FATHER IN CRISIS

Jairus, a ruler in the local synagogue, came to Jesus as a broken-hearted father. His only child, a daughter, was close to death. Like many another parent who has faced crisis, he found Jesus to be more than adequate to help.

A REQUEST – Vss. 21-24 – Jairus came to Jesus begging for help for his sick daughter. Jesus began to travel home with Jairus to help.

A DELAY – Vss. 25-34 – Someone else, a woman who had been sick for 12 years, touched Jesus by faith and was healed. Jesus paused to minister to her.

A HEALING – Vss. 37-43 – Jesus healed the child.

________________________________

_MARK 6:1-6 – REJECTED!

Jesus was doing great teaching and miracles throughout Galilee. When he got to His hometown of Nazareth, however, the reaction was different. He was rejected!

FAMILIAR FACE – Vss. 1-3a – Although Jesus’ words were mighty and the report of his miracles was that they were stupendous, what his home town people saw was a familiar face. They were not ready to embrace Him as Lord and Savior because He was too familiar.

FAITHLESS REACTION – Vss. 3b-4 – Instead of believing in Jesus they were offended by Him. Jesus observed that a prophet is accepted everywhere but in his own country and among his own people.

FAILED POWER – Vss. 5-6 – Jesus didn’t do many miracles because of the lack of faith on the part of the people. He marveled, or was amazed at their unbelief. Please notice that He left town and went to places where people would accept and believe on Him.

______________________________

MARK 10:17-27 – THE BURDEN OF A GREAT POTENTIAL

To have great potential can be a real burden.  Many people who have great potential never see it amount to anything.  Here was a man with great potential for serving Christ who let money get in the way.

HE RAN! – Vs. 17 – He was eager to talk to Jesus.

HE WAS RESPECTFUL – Vs. 17 – He knelt and called Jesus “Good Master”.

HE WAS RELUCTANT – Vss. 21-22 – He didn’t want to part with his riches.

HE WAS REMORSEFUL – Vs. 22 – He was sad, but not sad enough to repent.

HE WAS RESTRICTED – Vss. 23-27 – His love of money kept him out of the Kingdom of God.

______________________________

MARK 11:15-19 – CLEAN-UP TIME!

One of the great problems in the world today is pollution.  Each year millions of dollars are spent cleaning up after mankind!  Jesus was concerned about a different kind of pollution found in our text.  Those who would make it a place of business and dishonesty were polluting the temple of God. We must remember that today the body of the Christian is the temple of God. We must make sure that we keep it clean. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

DISINFECTING THE TEMPLE - Vs. 15

The area of the temple described here was the "Court of the Gentiles". This is where non-Jewish people could come and pray. Instead, it became a marketplace for moneychangers and salesmen. Jesus disinfected the Temple by casting out those who were polluting it!

DELETING THE TRAFFIC - Vs. 16

People would use this part of the temple as a street. This would distract anyone who was trying to pray, and showed disrespect for God. Jesus stopped the traffic!

DEFINING THE PROBLEM - Vs. 17

The house of prayer had become a den of thieves.  The people who sold in the temple were dishonest. Anything that would steal from our devotion to God needs to be removed from our lives.

DISTURBING THE LEADERS - Vs. 18

The leaders were disturbed because a source of money was being eliminated.

___________________________

MARK 11:1-10 – LIKE THE COLT

YOU ARE NEEDED - Vss. 1-6

Of course, because God is God, He technically needs nothing.  However, He has chosen to use each of us in ministry. Ephesians 2:10, 1 Peter 4:10-11

He has also chosen us to worship Him. Hebrews 13:15

YOU ARE TO CARRY JESUS - Vs. 7

The colt carried Jesus to Jerusalem and to a multitude of people.

We are to carry Jesus to the multitudes. Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15

YOU ARE TO BE UNDER HIS CONTROL - Vs. 7

The colt was unbroken, but he was "broken" by Jesus.

Jesus wants to break us and have full control of our lives. Romans 12:1, Galatians 2:20

YOU ARE TO BE FORGOTTEN AS CHRIST IS WORSHIPPED - Vss. 8-10

The further the Lord went, the more likely it is, that people forgot the colt.

So it should be with us as well. John the Baptist stated it well when he said, "He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30)

______________________________

MARK 15:1-38 – FOR ME!

In Galatians 2:20 Paul states that Jesus loved him and gave Himself for him.  Jesus loved and gave Himself for us as well. Mark shows us what terrible trouble Jesus faced for me!

ACCUSATION - Vss. 1-3 - He was falsely accused before Pilate by the chief priests, who should have received Him as their Messiah.

REJECTION - Vss. 6-14 - His own people rejected Him in favor of a convicted criminal, Barabbas.

HUMILIATION - Vss. 15-28

1. From the soldiers - Vss. 15-23

2. On the cross - Vss. 24-33

SEPARATION - Vss. 34-36 - Because He was bearing the sin of the world, even God the Father separated Himself from His Son during this time.

VINDICATION - Vss. 37-38 - When the veil was torn in two it indicated that God had accepted the sacrifice of Jesus for sin.  The way was open to the "holy of holies" through Christ.
