Series: The Servant King
TITLE: Let Me Remind You
Scripture: Mark 14: 1-31
I. REMEMBERED IN THE PRESENT (1-9)
Who is this mystery lady? Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus.
Extravagant acts of love will be public; they will be criticized; but they will be noticed.
II. REMEMBERING THE PAST (12-21)
“Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.”
Cliff Notes of Passover: Israelites were slaves in Egypt -> Pharaoh refused to release them after plagues -> one left: the death of the firstborn -> blood on doorpost.
Passover Meal was to remind them of God’s faithfulness and protection one evening.
III. REMEMBERED IN THE FUTURE (22-31)
“He who would learn to serve must first learn to think little of himself.” Bonhoeffer
Two elements in the Lord’s Supper:
1. Bread was Unleavened Bread. Symbol= body of Christ
2. Cup was the third cup at Passover Meal. Symbol= blood of Jesus
Communion looks back to Christ’s death but also looks forward with anticipation of His coming.
Next Week: “What’s Next?”- Acts 1: 1-11
