Cross Training 1: Give Jesus Something You Value (Mark 8:34-36)Greg Taylor, April 11, 2010
Part of the CrossTraining.
In this new preaching series Greg Taylor is asking two epic questions and teaching from the Gospel of Mark. The first question is "Who is Jesus?" Who is this man who forgives sin, heals the lame, casts out demons, and calms the storms? Second, "What does it mean to follow Jesus today?" These are two of the most important questions of our existence. In this first sermon, the challenge is to give Jesus equal time for 40 days.
34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
