“‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’” (Mark 9:24, NIV)
Belief can be hard: sometimes we can be uncertain what it is we believe, or that we believe enough. As we continue to look at Mark’s Gospel this Sunday, we’ll see that, when it comes to trust and faith, it all comes down to Jesus. I hope that you’ll be able to join us online, at 8:30, or at 10:30 (details below), as we look at this together.
I hope that these emails and prayers are useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
“For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.” (Mark 8:35) (NIV)
We are picking up our look at Mark's gospel again this week, and thinking about the promise of God's kingdom. As we look at the passage together, we'll see that we need to commit ourselves to following Jesus with everything we have, but that the promise of God's kingdom is more glorious that we can possibly imagine. I hope that you'll be able to join us online, at 8:30, or at 10:30 (details below), as we look at this together.
