Loving God, his people and our community

Mark 1 v 21-45 Why should you follow him?

So far in chapter 1 of the gospel of Mark, there have been two key moments:

  • the Holy Spirit has descended on Jesus
  • Jesus says the kingdom of God is here – repent & believe

The ministry of Jesus Christ has begun and Mark explains the many reasons why we should follow Jesus:

  • he has authority
  • he prays and submits to God his Father who gives him strength and power
  • he is our Advocate and cares for us – the leper kneels and begs for help and Jesus touches the untouchable

Jesus’ miracles authenticate his message. Love and compassion will authenticate our witness as God’s people.
