SERMON: The Big Question! (Mark 10:17-31)

Rich-Young-RulerHumans chase after and cleave to things in order to fill the void inside of them. However, these do not satisfy, because God and God alone can satisfy the longing of the soul.

This young man in our text, his heart cleaved to his riches.

We don’t judge this young man, because we all at some stage or another are drawn to things instead of to God. However, we do feel for him, because as he walks away, he turns his back on the very answer to his big question. Listen to how this “Big Man” with the “Big Question” receives the “Big Answer” from Christ….

Listen along (by clicking player below) as we consider this question, and the various opinions held concerning the Christ (I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 6th March 2016). God bless you!




Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
