Sunday, 8th Week after Pentecost

Updated: Jul 27, 2020

Text: Mark 1:14-20

Prayer Pointers:

For growth in good desires

For deliverance from coldness of heart

For love of our Lord for his sake

THE TIME IS FULFILLED! Mark’s Gospel, so breathless and urgent, pushes the story of Jesus. There is no time to waste!

Likewise, let us not pretend that we can be leisurely about our discipleship, that there will be another time, another opportunity. We should pay close attention to God’s divine call—not thinking that another time or another place would be more appropriate. The four brothers were fishing, doing their daily work, important work when Jesus called to them. Do not think that the conditions of our daily lives or the conditions of our souls suggests we should put that call off. There is no time to waste.

Jesus calls us! In your mercy

Savior, make us hear your call;

Give our hearts to your obedience,

Serve and love you best of all.

May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
