The Beginning of the Gospel
The best comment I heard today about the sermon was from a visitor. He identified himself as an evangelist and said that the sermon made him want to do more study in the Gospel According to Mark. I say that was the best comment I heard because that was exactly the effect I wanted today’s sermon to have. I want us all to have such a desire to know Jesus better that we dig deeply into Mark’s Gospel and let him teach us what it means to follow Jesus.
Several people told me that they would read the Gospel of of Mark but no one yet has accepted the challenge I gave this morning of reading the Gospel each week for the duration of the sermon series. I have done this in the past when preaching through Mark and look forward to doing it again. Won’t you join me? Let me know if you want to do this and we can keep each other accountable.
Finally, I want to express my sorrow over losing David Layman as my co-minister. David has truly been God’s gift to me for the past nine years and his leaving saddens my heart. However, I am confident that he made his decision prayerfully and am thankful that he will still be an active member of the congregation even if I don’t get to work beside him every day. May God’s blessing be on his family in this transition and may God give us eyes to see the direction and opportunities He has in store for our church in the future.
