Rev. Paul J. Miller – Sermon Outline – March 1, 2020

Series Title: Discovering Your Life in the Life of Jesus

Today’s Title: He is Out of His Mind

Today’s Text: Mark 3:20-35

Gospel Parallels:  Matthew 10:2-4, 12:25-29, 46-50, Luke 6:14-16, 8:19-21, 11:17-22

 

“He is out of his mind!”, He is possessed by Beelzebul!”

 

BLASPHEMY? (unforgivable sin?)

 

“whoever blasphemes against the HOLY SPIRIT will never be forgiven”

 

This word is used 15x in New Testament.

- Luke 12:10 – speaking against Jesus, forgivable

- 1 Timothy 1:13 – Paul was a blasphemer

- This specific warning is given only in this story.

 

IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT IT, YOU DIDN’T DO IT

 

ACCUSATIONS FROM “CLERGY”

(religious authority, church leaders, pastors, legalistic know-it-alls)

 

Jesus used LOGIC, REASON

  • A House Divided (v23-26)
  • A Strong man’s House (27)

 

LIES CANNOT STAND ON THEIR OWN, THEY NEED A “STRONGMAN” TO PROP THEM UP.

 

ACCUSATIONS FROM FAMILY

 (parents, siblings, extended family)

“Who are my mother and my brothers?”

“Here are my mother and my brothers!”

“Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”

 

Whoever does God’s WILL is your true FAMILY.

 

Whoever does God’s will is your true family, your true CHURCH

 

Romans 12:2 – Trust people who live THIS pattern….
