MARK 12:41-44                                                                                                                              
Pastor Rick Jackson


1. The Observation of Jesus [v. 41-42, Pr 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.]

2. The Object Lesson of Jesus [v. 43a, Matthew 6:25-34]

3. The Omniscience of Jesus [v. 43-44, John 2:25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.]



1.  Jesus Does Not Criticize the Givers [v. 41, 44, Acts 5:4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.]

2. Jesus Does Commend the Widow [v. 42-44, 2 Cor 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.]

3.  Jesus Does Challenge Us [2 Tm. 3:16-17]



1. For Us to Recognize Him [v. 28-29, John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, shew us the Father?]

2. For Us to Acknowledge Him [v. 30]

ALL Our Adoration - Mt 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.]

ALL Our Being - Mt 16:25-26 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

ALL Our Thoughts - 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

ALL Our Activity - Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

3. For Us to Act Like Him [v. 31-34, 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.]

Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
