In this sermon on Mark 9:38-50, Pastor Hinkle provides an overview of the lesson, but focuses on the most difficult part where Jesus says it would be better to cut off our hands and feet than to continue in sin and better to have a millstone fastened around our neck and be cast into the sea than to lead a child into sin. Pastor Hinkle explains that we need to take sin very seriously and avoid it, but that it is God who does the surgery when he buries us with Christ and raises us to new life through baptism.
There are different kinds of spiritual wisdom and they lead to different ways of living. This short sermon from Mark 9:30-37 and James 3 will help you sort out the difference between demonic wisdom and the wisdom that comes from the one true God.

In Ephesians 4:17-5:2, Paul urges his readers to make a complete break with their past sins.
