Stay Awake!

In these final verses of Mark 13 Jesus teaches us that we aren’t to get caught up in trying to predict the future, but instead are to be making it our aim to be faithful in the present. In the final days there will be false Christ’s, nations in conflict and natural disasters but we are to stay steady with the knowledge that God rules over each and every day. Buildings may crumble and people may stumble but we can be confident in what Jesus has said because his, “words will not pass away”. | Outline: [I] The Sign of the Fig Tree (vs. 28-31) [II] Two Words to Live By: Stay Awake! (vs. 32-37)

Up from the Depths, Into the Light

Psalm 130 is the song of someone who knows the depths of guilt before God, yet experiences the freedom and assurance of God's forgiveness. The psalmist's example offers hope to those who doubt God's full and free forgiveness, and it calls to action those who would presume upon it. God's plan for redemption is as sure as the morning; it pulls even the guiltiest sinners out from the depths and into the light. | Outline: [I] The Christian is Heard (vs. 1-2) [II] The Christian is Forgiven (vs. 3-4) [III] The Christian is Assured (vs. 5-6) [IV] The Christian is Redeemed (vs. 7-8)

Be on Guard

What Jesus teaches about the abomination of desolation and the tribulation is part of a larger conversation, in Mar, 13, that he’s having with his disciples about the end of time. These are challenging verses to study as Christian people, who love God’s Word, have concluded differently about what it all means. However, what we see clearly is that we can be confident in God’s reign, we should be on guard during these days and be trusting in Jesus’s words. | Outline: [I] The Abomination of Desolation (vs. 14-23) [II] The Coming of the Son of Man (vs. 24-27)

Don't Be Misled and Don't Be Discouraged

The 13th chapter of Mark contains a final address from Jesus, as spoke to his disciples extensively before the upcoming events of his arrest and crucifixion. He tells them about unsettling future events, times of assured struggle for his followers, but words of hope as the unstoppably good plan of God press on. Jesus tells his disciples this so they won’t get caught up in trying to predict the future, but will instead, be faithful in the present. | Outline: [I] A Day is Coming when this Temple will be Taken Down but Don’t be Misled (vs. 5-8) [II] A Day is Coming when You will be Dragged Down but Don’t be Discouraged (vs. 9-13)

The Showy Scribes and the Godly Giver

The widow in our passage lives in dire poverty, but her hope is in the Lord, whom she looked to as her protector. We learn from her example that real generosity will actually cost us something. She gave all that she had. That’s just what Jesus will do in these final chapters of Mark’s gospel. He will give himself for us on the cross, body and soul, all that he has. Paying the price for our sins and freely giving us salvation. | Outline: [I] A Serious Question (vs. 35-37) [II] A Stark Contrast (vs. 38-44)
