This week we are looking at Mark 6:14-29 which describes the events leading to the beheading of John the Baptist. Dani Trip will tell us how her family have got on under lockdown along with the bible reading. Kirsty will be leading us in our prayers.
Background of John the Baptist…
1:14-15 John to prison
Jesus is rejected 6:3, 6 but still presses on 6:11 with the 12 disciples with a de-brief
Why has Mark so ordered his material like this???
8:34 - costly to follow Jesus
1. Sitting on the fence
Have you taken the opportunity to respond to Jesus?
If not why not?
2. Seizing at sin
Are you quick at seizing worldly things, how might you do the same for spiritual things?
What is your danger to be like Herod or Herodias?
It was costly for John, how might it be costly for you to follow Jesus?
- Wise seizes the opportunity to repent.
- Week never make a decision.
- Foolish make foolish quick decisions.
