Provoking One Another
Pastor Dave Koppel | Mark 13:1-8
“Provoking One Another”
Mark 13:1-8 and Hebrews 10:11-25
Do not provoke me…what does this mean?
We should fear and love God, so that we do not despise our parents or superiors, nor provoke them to anger, but honor, serve, obey, love and esteem them.
-Luther’s Small Catechism, explanation of the 4th Commandment
Provoke each other.
“And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds.”
“let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”
“Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering,” -Hebrews 10:23a
“for he who has promised is faithful.” -Hebrews 10:23b
“Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some,” -Hebrews 10:24-25a
