Mark 2 v 23 to 3 v 12

  1. 1. Welcome to Grace! For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 “I’ve got nothing against God … it’s His fan club I can’t stand”
  2. 2. Mark 2:23-3:12 • Introduction
  3. 3. Please notice that Jesus has already (in Mark 2:21-22) spelled out that institutional religion and Christianity are not compatible. • Religion is to do with the codification and institutionalisation of rules, regulations and ritual. • Following the King in the Kingdom of God is to do with repentance and restoration to relationship. One of those is Christianity. The other is not.

Mark 2:23-3:12 • Introduction • Objection to meeting need: hunger, 2:23-28 • Objection to meeting need: livelihood, 3:1-6 • Response to God’s Kingdom meeting need: 3:7-12 • Conclusion  Religion sets you rules: Jesus sets you free.  Religion is going to gun for you if you’re a follower of Jesus.  Now let’s be clear on this, that religion which is self-reliant insistence on rules and ritual can take any number of forms.  It’s not some particular religion we’re discussing here. It’s religionS (if you like) over against turning away from sinful self-reliance to live trusting in Jesus, and we HAVE to stand away from the former to get clarity on the latter.  If Jesus needed to do that in first century Palestine, we DEFINITELY need to do it in 21 st. century Wales!
