Sermons on Mark
In this sermon, Phil Auxier calls people to a bold, vast witness in light of the truth revealed about Jesus in God's Word.
Mark 16:9-20 As a postlogue to the story of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, Mark juxtaposes the believer and the unbeliever in stark terms. He reaffirms the fate of those who disbelieve while giving the believers their marching orders. The final command of Christ is to go, assured of accompanying divine power, and make the gospel known everywhere.
Jesus commands his disciples, and by extension his church, to preach the gospel to all nations, making and baptizing disciples. We preach the gospel, not to be intolerant or disrespectful, but out of love for others and because our Lord and Savior has commanded us to do so. He promises to pour out his Holy Spirit on us to empower us to preach the gospel and to care for one another. And in his ascension, he proves that he has completed everything necessary to satisfy God's justice, secure our acceptance before God, and provide for our every need. We belong to him!
