Mark (2000-01)

Mark 16:6

Resurrection Sunday 2001, Mark 14:12

Vintage message from Resurrection Sunday, April 15, 2001. Understand, it is not up to us to rebuke those who do not believe. It’s simply up to us to tell those what we’ve seen, what we’ve experienced, what Jesus has done in our life… Jesus has done something in lives. He has done something in my life. He’s done something in your life. If He hasn’t done something in your life, He can do something in your life, and wants to…
Mark 14:10

Mark 14:1-11

Vintage message from March 25, 2001. Do you ever ask yourself, when you’re serving the Lord, is anything I do really that significant? Is my life really worth that much? Does anybody really care that I even exist? These are all questions I’ve asked myself many times… And one of the things that we oftentimes forget, especially when we start to criticize what other people are doing around us, that there is plenty of opportunity. We don’t need to criticize…
Mark 13:37

Mark 13:1-36

Vintage message from March 18, 2001. It is not about buildings. It is not about the magnificent things that we can do for God. It’s about the motives of our heart. He doesn’t look at the things that we build. He looks at the life that we live and how we live it… Watch out that no one deceives you. How do you do that? By a careful and regular study of God’s Word. Knowing Him, learning His heart, learning…
Mark 12:36

Mark 12:35-44

Vintage message from March 11, 2001. You either believe God’s Word, trust God’s Word, and obey God’s Word, or you don’t. And you know what? I find there are times I don’t, and because I do know God’s Word, that’s where my heart is called on the carpet. Then I have to come back and say, “Lord, I blew it. I’ve sinned against You. There’s no way around it. There are no loopholes. I’ve sinned against You. Forgive me.” And…
Mark 12:29

Mark 12:13-27

Vintage message from February 18, 2001. [Jesus didn’t] argue with them and deal with the argument on their level. He’s just going to simply point out the truth to them, and you know what? That’s all we need to do to people. Point out the truth to them and walk away from the argument; not allow ourselves to be sucked in and bring division, even if it is with someone who is obviously divided because of what they believe, and…
Mark 12:11

Mark 11:27-12:12

Vintage message from February 4, 2001. The fact is, Jesus died to forgive all of us… The reason that He came was not to give us Cadillacs and not to move mountains from where they were standing and being tossed into the sea, but that we would have an ability to love and to forgive. The greatest miracle, I believe, that we can ever see is accomplished right here in my own heart, because you know what? The hardest thing…
Mark 11:25

Mark 11:1-26

Vintage message from January 28, 2001. Do you realize that you and I see things from completely different perspectives than the people sitting around us? We look at people, we judge each other, we condemn each other, we talk about each other, because each one of us is different. There are some who are stronger in the Lord, and there are some who are weaker in the Lord… In Romans Paul told us that the stronger are to bear with…
Mark 10:47

Mark 10:46-52

Vintage message from January 21, 2001. You know, I find, oftentimes when I’m praying, I hear those same words from the Holy Spirit whispering in my heart, “What do you want Me to do for you? What do you want Me to do? How do you want Me to bless you? How do you want Me to work in your life?” And you know what? There are so many of us that have no clue what we want [or] what…
Mark 10:21

Mark 10:13-31

Vintage message from January 7, 2001. It is out of hard-heartedness that we live and dwell in sin; that we allow for the things of this world, the pleasures of this world, the cares of this world, to over run us. It’s because of the hardness of our hearts that we refuse to see things God’s way. And it’s because of the hardness of our heart that we will not walk in love relationship with Him. He desires that love…
Mark 9:50

Mark 9:38-10:12

Vintage message from December 31, 2000. (The end of the message was cut off on the tape.) There is not one of us that deserves the mercy that Jesus chooses to give. He loves to be merciful, but He simply asks us to come to Him in faith, believing that He wants to be merciful, that He can be merciful, and that He will be merciful… Jesus’s desire for us is to be at peace, to love one another, to…
Mark 9:35

Mark 9:14-37

Vintage message from December 17, 2000. We, in our hearts, need to be prepared, and we are only prepared by giving up our will and our flesh, …to pray and to fast and to seek God’s heart, to know the Father’s will in this matter… There is a time that we need to take in prayer and fasting and preparation in our heart to face what might be coming to us. Now, most of what we would face each day,…
Mark 9:7

Mark 9:1-12

Vintage message from December 10, 2000. Jesus’s number one task was not to heal people, but to bring people back into love relationship with God the Father, because men had been separated for many years because of their arrogance, their pride, and their disobedience… [Jesus] comes to the heart of the matter. It’s no longer about the “touchy-feely, feel good, get healed, and go off and have a good time” anymore. It’s no longer about just coming to church and…
