The Son Calls His Disciples (Mark 3:7-19)

Dr. J. Tyler Scarlett, May 13, 2018
Part of the The Gospel According to Mark series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Due to technical difficulties, the audio for this sermon is not available.

1. Discipleship is more than admiring Jesus's abilities (vs. 7-10)

People from all over were coming to Jesus, but it was because they cared more about His healing power than they cared about the person of Jesus.

2. Discipleship is more than knowing Jesus' identity (vs. 11-12)

The demons saw Jesus and they knew His identity as the Son of God, but this did not make the demons followers of Jesus.

3. Discipleship is more or less following Jesus in community (vs. 13-19)

Disciples are called and follow Jesus in obedience. They are people who follow Him and serve Him with others who do the same thing of following Jesus and representing Him.

Mark 3:7-19

7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, 8And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him. 9And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. 10For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. 11And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known. 13And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him. 14And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: 16And Simon he surnamed Peter; 17And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, 19And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
