If you would like to prepare for Sunday by reading, read Mark 1 beforehand. In addition to your Bible, we are reading through “King’s Cross” for this Sunday and we are on page 20, so you can still participate in this exercise as well. The feedback on the book has been positive and it is an enjoyable and beneficial read.
As difficult as it is to make time to read your Bible and pray, it is invaluable and indispensible to a Christian. Our desire is not to be academic, but to allow the Word of God to “renew our mind” and knowledge plays an essential role in this transformation. If you want to be like Jesus, you have to spend time reading his words and words about him.
