In this sermon, Peter explores what it means to follow Jesus. He came to be an obedient servant and this is the model for us all to follow. “If anyone will come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” [Mark 8:34b]
As we enter 2021 still in lockdown, in a chaotic and often overwhelming world, Mark Hill reminds us that no matter what happens, we need to center ourselves on Christ. In doing so, we follow the example of Jesus, who centered himself on God.
Following Good, Better, Best comes another message about God’s values and how we either get them or miss them. We engage the Philosopher of Ecclesiastes, Pastor Paul commending Christ and the Farmer/businessman with a bumper harvest -‘Mr. Bigger-Barns’- who Jesus described as a ‘fool’.
