    What it is to Prepare for the Incarnation and return of Christ

    Last week, we took a look at that which we are preparing for. I mentioned the obvious – that we look back as we prepare once again to celebrate the birth of the messiah, of Emmanuel, God with us – come to save us from our sin and death. We look all around and we see the world preparing to ...read more

    The topic, prelude, context, and focus of Mark’s story about Jesus.

    (Note: This sermon was introduced with scenes 1 and 2 of "Traveling Light," a full length play based on the Gospel of Mark from Lillenas).

    Book sermon on Gospel of Mark emphasizes the person of Jesus.

    The Beginning of the Gospel Mark 1:1-3 INTRO.: Today’s message begins a series taken from the Gospel of Mark.

  • Immediately Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Aug 4, 2001
    based on 39 ratings
     | 5,881 views

    This was done as a dramatic monologue, as if I were Mark; and costumed according to Mark 14:51-52! It makes use of one of Mark’s favorite words, "immediately", and argues that Jesus expects immediate response to His call.

    What’s happening? What’s going on here? I came as quickly as I could. If you linger, you will miss Him. He waits for no one. He acts immediately. He is the most urgent person I’ve ever known. He just does not wait for anything. He acts immediately. So, again, what’s happening here? What ...read more

     | 3,620 views

    From Mark 1.1, this Introduction to the Gospel of Mark seeks to focus our eyes on the surprising Savior we come to know in Mark and to fire our souls with the reality of God with us.

    INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES AND THE READING It was a day that would live in infamy. Not September 11th, 2001 or December 7th, 1941, but Summer of AD 64: The Great Fire of Rome. If you were alive during that time, it would have had the sort of shock value that we all experienced in our own national ...read more

    The coming of Jesus Christ was prepared by God before the foundation of the world.

    PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD Mark 1:2-11 (vs. 3) INTRO. In the days of knights and nobles, when the king went out into the country side or the city, a crier went before him to cry, "Make way, make way for the King."

  • The Divine Visitation

    Contributed by Paul Kallan on Dec 4, 2002
    based on 37 ratings
     | 12,058 views

    It is better to be cleansed from the roots of evil than to be lead from the different forms of prisons that they build around us.

    On the second Sunday of Advent, Mark 1.1-8 calls our attention to the person of John the Baptist. John is a figure of confrontation. This confrontation is interior in nature. It has to do with our inner self. It is the greatest challenge of cleansing ourselves innerly. Tom was a quite boy. His ...read more

  • Mark 1:1-8 What Would John The Baptist Say To You

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Dec 4, 2002
    based on 470 ratings
     | 70,613 views

    This is a time of the year for cliches and spiritual sappy-talk. John the Baptist offers a fresh perspective.

    Mark 1:1-8 WHAT WOULD JOHN THE BAPTIST SAY TO YOU? Sometimes, when you hear the same thing all the time, it starts to become less and less meaningful. For example, right now, at this time in the year, the newspaper, the TV, and the radio are all saying the same thing: “There is a special sale ...read more

  • A Good Place To Start

    Contributed by Eloy Gonzalez on Dec 6, 2002
    based on 94 ratings
     | 13,840 views

    Second Sunday in Advent: The evangelist Mark starts with John the Baptist preaching in the wilderness. He seems to leave out Christmas. But perhaps, for us, it is a ’good place to start.’

    The Gospel Lesson today is one of the most interesting Advent / Christmas lessons in all of scripture. I say that because - did you notice that something seems to be missing? There is no mention of Christmas in this Gospel. Mark mentions neither the miraculous conception nor the birth of Jesus. And ...read more
