The Time Has Come

Job 19; Mark 1,2

“…Jesus went to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. ‘The time has come,’ he said. ‘The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!’...‘Come, follow me!’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.’ At once they left their nets and followed him…without delay he called them…’” Mark 1:14, 15, 17, 18, 20

There is urgency to Christ’s call to “follow me”. The time has come and the time is now (2 Corinthians 6:1, 2) The urgency is focused on leaving our life of sin and following Jesus. We are called to leave whatever occupies us and become fishers of men. When the gospel becomes more about the forgiveness of our sin than about repenting and following Jesus, it is no longer the gospel Jesus preached. Jesus called people to the kingdom of God and a new way of looking at others, themselves, economics, family life, and every facet of their lives. The time has come again to leave our self-centered religious life and follow Jesus. It is only in following Jesus that we have a compelling enough life message to become fishers of men.

“Jesus, I will follow you and call others to follow you. Fill me with both joy and the urgency to recognize that the time to respond is now. Wake up those who sleep.”

The pastoral couple of the Salt and Light Church that we attend relocated to the capital city this summer; please pray for our leadership team as we seek to work together to lead the church, and that God would raise up someone to take the pastoral role. Also pray for the practical need of wood and coal for the fall and winter, for many of the congregation who are very poor.”
