Here we are on the 60th day of the year already! And we're starting our third gospel. When I did a class on the gospels one of the things about Mark is the fast pace of his gospel. He didn't waste time or words on telling what Jesus did.
Click here to go to Mark 1:1
Where to begin? In the first chapter of Mark we meet John the Baptist, Jesus is baptized, he calls Simon Peter and Andrew (and it looks like James and John), heals LOTS of people, casts out lots of demons and gets to the point where He can't go into cities without being bombarded by people. But the one thing that I really like is in verse 35 Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray. The Son of God took time to be alone so he could pray. Hmm... probably a good idea for me a mere human to take time to be alone to pray.
Lots of good stuff in these verses. What did you enjoy?
