    ReadSeptember 2021 Newsletter (rev.)
    Revised Edition

    From the Pastor's Desk

    I am excited to be kicking off a new Sermon Series on the Gospel of Mark on the first Sunday of September. Mark is the earliest of all the Gospels written and it is widely thought to have been Peter’s account of the life and ministry of Christ (dictated to and written down by John Mark). It is the shortest of all the Gospels and it actually moves at a bit of a breakneck speed. It is almost as if Peter barely takes a breath between each subsequent event. We are going to look at the book in two parts. The first part is roughly the first 8 chapters where the question of chapter 4:41 is extremely telling “who then is this?”. The answer to that question is given finally in chapter 8. Where Peter exclaims “you are the Christ the Son of the living God’. So we concern ourselves in part one establishing Who Jesus is. And of course, we already know he is the Christ. He is the King.

    Part 2 in the series follows the confession of Peter and points us with laser focus to the Cross. In fact right after Peter’s confession in chapter 8 Mark tells us in verse 31 “and he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. And he said this plainly.” After we have answered the question of “who is this?” we will begin to look at why he came. So, part 2 of this sermon series will be called the Cross. Jesus continues his healing and teaching ministry, but the secret is out and he begins to prepare his disciples for his death, burial and resurrection.

    We will be in the Gospel of Mark for quite a bit of the next year, but I think it will be incredibly rewarding as we consider who Jesus is, and why He has come. The Gospel accounts of Scripture are really at the very heart of God’s story of redemption, and therefore extremely important for our faith and our Growth in grace. What Christ has done and done for us is overwhelming and what we have is only scratching the surface of His greatness. In John 21:25 the Apostle John said “now there also many other things that Jesus did. Were everyone of them written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.” While Mark is the shortest of the Gospels and I fear I cannot even exhaustively cover this one Gospel, I think that what can and will be revealed to us by the Holy Spirit will have eternal benefit for all our souls!


    Grace and Peace,

    Pastor Jason
