Let Me Remind You

2021 THEME: Life on the Edge

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.




“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
