Filter by Chapter Number

Mark 1:1-3

Mark 1:1-3

God does not arrive unannounced. As Isaiah announced John the Baptist, and John announced Jesus - the task of God's people today is to prepare a rebellious world for the arrival of its King.

Mark 1:4-5

Mark 1:4-5

Repentance and confession are the keys to change, for people who do not get everything right.

Mark 1:6-7

Mark 1:6-7

John was not a pretty sight and his eating habits left something to be desired.

Mark 1:8-10

Mark 1:8-10

It is worth remembering that we cannot do everything. The perfectionist or obsessive worker may be an asset to the business, but can be a menace in the Kingdom of God.

Mark 1:11

Mark 1:11

Love is still the most prized commodity on earth. Some say that God loves everyone, so everything is all right - but is it?

Mark 1:12-13

Mark 1:12-13

God does many things that are strange to our way of thinking.

Mark 1:14-15

Mark 1:14-15

It never feels good to be sidelined - I am sure that John was not wildly happy to be thrown into jail.

Mark 1:16-18

Mark 1:16-18

Most non-Christians think (if they think about it at all) that if God were to call anyone, He would obviously call a holy person doing holy things. Not so!

Mark 1:19-20

Mark 1:19-20

The Christian life inevitably includes a call away from the past.

Mark 1:21-22

Mark 1:21-22

Jesus always went first to the places where people expected to hear God. In the synagogue the rabbis said that the law of God was right - but even the most religious found it impossible to keep.
