The Ransom - #5 - Denial

Sin is such a powerful thing.  Temptation tugs at us every step of the way.  Our fall into sin and a denial of Jesus isn’t a matter of if, but when. Through it all, however, Jesus is right with us.  He warned Peter before his denial.  He called him back during his denial.  He forgave Peter and received him back after Peter’s denial and repentance. He will not leave us.  We will not be ashamed.   Mark 14:26-31, 66-72

The Ransom - #4 - Judgment Hall

Two things are certain - death and taxes.  Taxes are due in just a few weeks.  But who knows when death will overtake us.  Then, and at that moment, we will stand before the ultimate judge of all.  For you, Jesus stood before human judges and even God himself.  He, who is the ultimate Judge, became the judged judge.  And because he did three things are now certain, “Death, taxes, and justification.” Mark 14:53-65
