Michael Suderman, a member of the GCC family, and a minister for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, leads us into an exploration of Jesus’ triumphal arrival into Jerusalem. The nation of Israel was waiting for a leader who would overthrow the government of Rome, but what they got was so much more then even that.
In Mark 8, we read of Peter making his famous confession of Christ; ‘You are the Christ’. It’s a beautiful and profound moment, but one that leaves us wondering how he so quickly denies Jesus just a few chapters later. Then, in the book of Acts, we read about Peter as a true warrior of the faith; someone who ultimately dies for what he believes in. Why this change? How does Peter in the book of Mark become Peter in the book of Acts? How can we as followers of Jesus learn from his dramatic transformation? In this sermon, Chris Moerman leads us into some important insights in his transformation that are as relevant today as they were for Peter back then.
In Mark 6:1-13, Jesus speaks of the dishonor that a prophet experiences when ministering to his hometown and juxtaposes this idea by sending out the Twelve to surrounding villages. Using this passage for context, we soon discover the deeper difference between believing in Jesus and truly following him. Jesus teaches us that sometimes the greatest miracle is just over the horizon of what's most comfortable.
