9 reMARKable thoughts from Mark 1.


Mark 1:14-15: Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Our question is not just "How did Jesus act?" In view of His action, we must also ask, "What should be my reaction?"
Don't be so consumed waiting for tomorrow's miracle, that you miss God's provisions and opportunities today.
Anywhere the King's authority is accepted and obeyed is a kingdom outpost.
Jesus came to inaugurate the Kingdom of God in the hearts of men.
Repentance is more than just an apology. It is words, not actions. It is an intentional effort to discontinue the old in favor of the new.
Belief is more than just a one time prayer asking Jesus into your heart. It is the full embrace of a new way of life.
Repentance and belief is like remodeling an old house. It's best to simply tear out the old so that the new can be built appropriately.
Jesus understood people wouldn't immediately be made perfect upon hearing His teachings. He was inviting them to join Him on a journey.
Jesus didn't come to earth, die on the cross, rise from the dead and return to heaven so you could "get saved" and then just wait to go to heaven.
