John 12:1-11

How do we respond to all we have seen and heard?


Intro remarks




The serving of Martha – v. 2

 We are called to serve.


Previously we learned (Luke) that Martha could get preoccupied with her serving, but what a great picture of the Gospel.  NOT ABOUT ME BE ABOUT OTHERS.



The worship of May – v. 3

More reflective and emotional than Martha. (Both were loved by Jesus….remember…..balance, balance, balance)


Costly worship


Humble worship


Too often we fit Jesus/Church when time allows.



The idolatry of Judas – vv. 4-8


Judas problem was idolatry (HE WAS SELF RIGHTEOUS)


Delusional mind


Selfish motive


Missed opportunity



The fickleness of the crowed – v. 9


Jews (here is reference to the common people)… they came


Not against, but not committed to


The hostility of the religious leaders – vv. 10-11


A great picture of the HARD HEART




What a picture of the world and heart of the world we live in.


What is the answer.  What is needed?
