*** Summarize this week’s message from the Pastor’s Sermon Notes. ***
Passage: Mark 6:1-6
1. What did you learn or takeaway from this week’s message?
2. Why did Jesus wait so long to begin His public ministry? What might have happened if He had started sooner?
3. Why would the Creator of the Heavens and Earth condescend even to performing of manual labor? Why aren’t more Christians laboring for God? Is it up to us to motivate them?
4. What would be different if Jesus had come as the conquering king instead of the sacrificial lamb? Why did the Jews expect (and want) a king instead of the Lamb of God?
5. Application: Is Jesus done working on you? Are you helping or hindering that work?
6. Application: Have you submitted to being used as a tool in the hands of Jesus to do His will? If not, what will it take?
