OT: Isaiah Ch. 40 v. 1-11
Psalm: 85 v. 1-2, 8-13
NT: 2 Peter Ch. 3 v. 8-15a
Gospel: Mark Ch. 1 v. 1-8
Scholars believe that Mark was the first Gospel written and as such he created the term Gospel meaning a written account concerning Jesus. The other Evangelists begin their narratives at various beginnings. Matthew and Luke with the the birth of Christ, and John with the ultimate beginning even before the beginning mentioned in Genesis.
However, in Mark, Jesus the Messiah bursts onto the scene to be baptised and begin his mission. In fact, immediately is a favourite word of Mark’s and indicates the urgency that the mission be begun and fulfilled.
- Give us grace to repent and hear the Good News afresh.
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the Anglican Church of Kenya.
