CAN YOU UNDERSTAND JESUS? (Mark 9:30-40)

May 20, 2013

Do you understand Jesus when He speaks to you? 

As believers we put many things in the way of our hearing what our Lord is trying to teach us.

We bring the preconceived ideas of our religion to the Lord's classroom. We filter what the Lord says through those ideas, and it keeps us from hearing what the Lord is truly trying to teach us.

We bring the world's values, measures, and standards to the Lord's classroom. We judge greatness, goodness, evil, and sin by the ever changing moral standards of the current social thinking. Using the world's standards prevents us from understanding what the Lord is truly trying to teach us.

Listen to this podcast to learn that the keys to understanding Jesus do not include the rituals of religion, nor do they include the world's standards.

Jesus says that you must first be reborn. You must be a believer to understand the words of Jesus. A person who does not have a relationship with Christ will never hear Him.

Jesus says that you must also accept the role of servant of all. A proud man will never hear the words of Jesus.

It is when we truly hear the words of Jesus that we find the purpose that He has for our lives.
