I just got off the phone with my friend I asked to join me on the journey and he agreed. (I hadn’t asked him before.)
The plan is to work through the book of Mark. We will work through it one, small segment at a time. I am not in a hurry, just going to work through the gospel.
My plan, and the plan I would invite you to join is to read through the whole gospel at least once per month. Each week, I will start a new text. Each day I will read the text and let it sit with me for day.
Through the week, I will ponder the text. Through the week, I will listen to hear what God has to say to me.
At the end of the week I will take some time to write up my thoughts on the text. Hopefully, I will be able to share places where God interjects himself into my life.
YOU. I invite you to interact with me regarding the passage. I will work to interact back. I don’t make any promises of timing. I am excited we are going on this journey together.
Week 1: Mark 1:1-8 – The beginning of the Gospel
I, am honored that you have asked. It will take some recommitment on my part both in time and thought, but thank God you have asked. I look forward to it with anticipation. Tom
I am thrilled to have you on board.
OK. Let the adventure begin. Thank you.
I was reading over the 8 verses & wondering why John the Baptise was clothed with camel hair with a belt around his middle and his diet was locust & honey. He was preaching about Jesus’ coming, and the people were coming to him to be baptized. Why were these people so drawn to John & believe his message? Wouldn’t John’s appearance and life style make him seem to be somewhat crazy?
His garb would have identified him as a prophet in the line of Elijah. And a little on the kooky side too. 🙂
