Sermons on Mark
We need to be vigilant to keep our hearts from becoming hard and to soften our hearts when we begin to see hardness happening. Our text reminds us that disciples can have hard hearts and that the hard heart both grieves our Lord and draws His rebuke.
Finalmente se apareció a los once mismos, estando ellos sentados a la mesa, y les reprochó su incredulidad y dureza de corazón, porque no habían creído a los que le habían visto resucitado. Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura. El que creyere y fuere bautizado, será salvo; mas el que no creyere, será condenado.
Sermon preached by Missionary Mike Cheshier on November 20, 2011
Evangelism is our responsibility; locally and globally.
We pause in our “Wealthy Poor” series to reflect on the relocation of our worship space to the Grandel Theater. Why did we move? Why here? What are we doing? Monumental shifts in culture are shaking the 21st century church to the core. Reliant stands as a mission of a larger church, Christ Memorial, and a larger Lutheran heritage. One question we’re trying to answer is “How are we the church in this place at this time?” It is our task to take the gospel that has been passed down to us and bear it faithfully in our appointed time. Dr. Norman Nagel writes, “Each generation receives from those who went before, and in making that tradition its own, adds what may best serve in its own day – the living heritage and something new.” We press on with what was passed down. And we bring to it “something new.”
In the very last installment of our Images of Jesus series, we examine the last words of Jesus, as he calls the disciples to "'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel.'"
