This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday morning, June 3, 2007, and was taken from Mark 3:20-35.
Introduction: When the kingdom of God comes, the kingdom of men have to give way. There is no neutral position. What will you do with Jesus?
This passage describes three encounters with Jesus and three responses:
- vs. 20 and 21: A response of a warm regard and tempered respect, but nothing more.
- vs. 22-31: A response of dismissal.
- vs. 32-34: A response of loving obedience and passionate devotion as Lord.
Conclusion: What will you do with Jesus?
