Tear Down This Wall!
Passage: Mark 10:13–10:31
Title: Tear Down This Wall!
Text: Mark 10:13-31
- Christ has broken down the walls that divide us (Ephesians 2:13-16)
- It's not God's will that we build walls of division.
- We still have the sinful tendancy to build walls God has already torn down.
- We impose temporal, social, cultural, and racial barriers on others that makes it difficult for them to become one with us and with Jesus (v 13-16).
- We even build walls that keep ourselves from following Jesus (v17-22).
- What he got right: He came to the right person; He had the right question; He demonstrated the right attitude; He had the right motives; He had the right priorities; He was doing the right things.
- What he got wrong: He had built a wall of material wealth strengthened by the mortar of works righteousness that kept him from following Christ.
- Amazing truth- God is still able to tear down the walls that divide us!
- Amazing grace- The riches of God's grace are greater than the riches of man's riches!
