This week we have the privilege to start the Book of Mark. The Book of Mark is one of the synoptic gospels (Luke & Matthew are the other two).
This Book was written to a Roman audience, and so it is fast pace and straight to the point. Apparently, Romans did not like a lot of beaten around the bush just wanted you to hurry up and get to the point, sounds like New Yorkers. It also is a lot like our culture today most of us bounce from Twitter, Instagram or Facebook just looking for that next big topic or thing to occupy our time.
If you get anything from this gospel, please remember Jesus came to serve not be served. So, we are called to do the same as followers of Jesus. We are to serve in our marriages, families, church, and communities. I am really looking forward to just simply going through this book verse by verse and learn about Jesus the suffering servant.
