Message of the Week
Mark 1:14-20
“Repent, and believe in the Gospel.” What would
happen if Jesus spoke these commanding words
today? Would his listeners accuse him of shoving his
religion down their throats? Would they give him a
lecture on tolerance or insist that repentance is an
outdated idea from a bygone era obsessed with guilt?
How many of us would actually listen to him, and do
what he said? Our modern culture has been
programmed to respond with skepticism, if not anger,
to any suggestion that there is a “right” way of doing
things or a “true” religion. But when Jesus tells us to
repent, he implies that some of the choices we are
making are wrong, that we need to change, to
eliminate our sins, to turn toward God, and to become
more loving, more generous, and more forgiving. And
when he tells us to believe in the Gospel, he’s not just
making a recommendation. He is giving us directions
for entering “the Kingdom of God.” Are we willing
to let his words affect us? Are we ready to examine
our lives and repent of our sins? Are we prepared to
believe the good news he preached of salvation and
forgiveness? He wants us to share in the glory of his
kingdom, now and for all eternity. The question is
only how we will respond to this divine invitation.
Questions of the Week
Mark 1:14-20:
What place does repentance have in your spiritual
Jonah 3:1-5, 10:
What is surprising to you in the conversion of the
1 Corinthians 7:29-31:
What do you think Paul meant by the phrase
“For the world in its present form is passing away?”

THANK YOU for the wonderful toys you
donated for Christian Help's 33rd Annual
Toy Give-Away. We, also, thank you for
volunteering at the new Armory setting up
and distributing the toys. We served 880
children from low-income families in our
county. Each child received at least 4-5
toys/gifts plus books, stuffed animals,
videos, hats, gloves and clothing. We gave
away 9 new bicycles and 85 reconditioned
(by Positive Spin) bicycles. Thank you
again for helping make this a huge success
and making many children happy. There are
pictures on the bulletin board in the back
