Listening for the Kingdom
Topic: Religion vs. Relationship Passage: Mark 2:18–2:22
In Mark 2:18-22, Jesus uses a question of holiness as an opportunity to reveal who he is to those who are paying attention. The text provides us with a guide for how to listen to Jesus well. We also learn how the gospel makes us new, how it does away with old ways, and how it doesn't mix with our old life and old preferences and traditions.
