Understanding the Costs

- Sermons - Gospel of Mark

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on July 1, 2012 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the Gospel of Mark series.

I remember many years ago working with an former Army soldier and he was telling me a story about the day if volunteered to “drive truck.” The Sergeant asked who wanted to drive truck and he and many other men quickly volunteered. It was only after they all agreed to “drive truck” that they learned that their “trucks” looked and exactly like wheelbarrows. No one understood all that was contained in the act of volunteering. Two of the disciples have a desire to be chosen as Jesus’ number 1 and 2 assistance. Jesus lets them know that what they want is nothing like what they will receive. Life will not be easy but heard.

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
