Tear Down This Wall!

June 7, 2015 Speaker: Jim Herring Series: Jesus The King

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!
