Week 37 Day 1
Mark is the shortest of the four Gospels
it is action-packed
Mark focuses on what Jesus did
and his miracles.
The attitude of amazement and expectation runs throughout
People watched Jesus
they listened to him
and were absolutely amazed
they came to see Jesus
with great expectations
When they were with Jesus
they knew something wonderful
Mark has a demon in every story
Jesus ministry was that of driving out demons--
the powers of evil that overtake us
all the things that make for death
all the things that need to go
before healing and wholeness
can take place.
FUELED FOR MISSIONProphecies, John's baptism, solitude; Jesus is off and running.
1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of
God. 2As it is written in the Prophets: "Behold. I send My
messenger before You, who will prepare Your way before
You." 3"The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
'Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight.'"
4John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a
baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5All the
land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went to him and
were baptized in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
6Now John was clothed with camel's hair and a leather
belt, and ate locusts and wild honey. 7He preached, saying,
"One comes after me, who is mightier than I, whose sandal
strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. 8 I baptized
with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized
by John in the Jordan. 10Coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. 11Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
12 Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
13He was there forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with
the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him
14After John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15and saying,
"The time is fulfilled; the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
29They entered the house of Simon and Andrew. 30But
Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever. 31So He took
her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever
left her. And she served them. 32At evening, they brought to
Him all who were sick, 33and the whole city was gathered at
the door. 34He healed many and cast out demons.
35 In the morning, having risen a long while before daylight,
He went out to a solitary place; and there prayed. 36Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. 37When they
found Him, they said, "Everyone is looking for You."
38But He said to them, "Let us go into the next towns,
that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have
come." 39And He was preaching in their synagogues
throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
