“Jesus Christ Is Worthy of Your All” Mark 12:35-44

An Expositional Sermon
Faithful exposition of God’s Word exposes false teachers. If fidelity to God’s Word in the preaching is de-emphasized the leaven of false teaching expands. Jesus is constantly preaching the Bible. Have you noticed that? Jesus is an itinerant preacher, and He doesn’t just preach based upon His own authority, which He would be completely justified to do, but He preached the Bible. He overcame Satan’s temptation in the wilderness with the Bible. He corrected the Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, Elders, and Herodians with the Bible. He viewed His entire life and ministry as a fulfillment of the Bible. Why? Why is the Bible so important to the ministry of Christ? Was He weak? Did he lack authority in some way that He felt that He had to draw from an authority outside of Himself? No. The Bible is God’s Word, and Jesus is Word made flesh. If the Bible was sufficient for Jesus’ life and ministry, then it is for us too.
