  10. 10. Today’sTakeaway #1 All of us are very much like theTwelve. Deep inside of us is this leftover remnant of our fallen humanity which craves to be first --- to have the preeminence! We need to put off that desire to be first and live by the motif . . . “I AM LAST!”

  21. 21. Jesus warning of the horrific consequence of sin Mark 9:43-45 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell.
  22. 22. Jesus warning against the danger of sin Mark 9:47-48 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, “where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’

  24. 24. Jesus warning against the danger of sin Mark 9:47-48 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, “where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’
  25. 25. Jesus warning against the danger of sin “Gehenna” (a deep ravine just south of Jerusalem)  Evil kings Ahaz and Manneseh sacrificed children to the false god, Molech here  Good king Josiah turned area into the city’s garbage dump
  26. 26. Jesus warning against the danger of sin “Gehenna” (a deep ravine just south of Jerusalem) Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.”

  35. 35. Today’sTakeaway #3 Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  36. 36. Today’sTakeaway #3 We must KILL sin before it KILLS us! Both sin’s penalty and sin’s presence!

  38. 38. Today’sTakeaway #3 Mark 9:43-45 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire.

  39. 39. Today’sTakeaway #3 Mark 9:47-48 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, “where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’
