The Newness of the Kingdom of God (Mark 2:18-22)

Tim Cain, August 12, 2017
Part of the Mark series, preached at a Saturday Evening service

Have you ever found yourself struggling to understand God? As hard as you try to understand what God is doing or why he is doing it nothing seems to make sense to you. Well you are not alone. When Jesus first came nothing he did made sense to the Pharisees either. But in Mark 2:18-22 Jesus comes to explain why it is that nothing was making sense. The problem was that the Pharisees were trying to put him in their old categories and he just didn’t fit. Basically Jesus tells them that if they keep doing that he is going to blow up their categories because there is no way that they can contain him. Tonight we are going to discover that we are more similar to the Pharisees than we may have thought. You see we too are constantly trying to fit God into our old categories. But tonight Jesus comes to blow up our old categories and to give us new ones in which to understand God. And for all those willing to embrace Jesus’ new categories what you will find is that you will never be the same.
