The Danger of Self Reliance

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 7

Mark 14:26-31  (ID: 2909)

After celebrating the Passover with his disciples, Jesus warned them that they would all fall away. In doing so, he identified a danger that we face too. When we rely on ourselves and trust our own hearts we are in a precarious position. Alistair Begg reminds us that even though we may fall into sin for a season, failure with God is never final. He keeps and sustains those who are His.


Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial

26And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
