Mark 12:35-44

Big idea: Genuine faith produces gospel faithfulness

 A genuine faith:

1) Desires an accurate view of Christ (v. 35-37)

2) Demonstrates the attitude of Christ (v. 38-40)

5 Warning signs of a disingenuous faith:
a. Expressions of self-importance (v. 38)
b. Engrossed in self-entitlement (v.38)
c. Embracing self-promotion (v.39)
d. Exploiting for self-interest (v. 40)
e. Emphasis on self-righteousness (v.40)

3) Displays authentic commitment to Christ (v. 41-44)
