On Sunday, we kicked off our Summer Series: The Good News of Jesus according to Mark. When I asked our children what they knew about Jesus, they said:
“He is God’s Son.” (Mark 1:1)
“He died on the cross.” (1 Peter 2:24)
“He doesn’t have a birthday.” (John 1:1-2)
All three of them were correct! The prophet was right: “A little child shall lead them.” Children are a gift from God because they teach us the truth of faith…their innocence and naivety can be real assets, because they take God at his Word. This summer, we are following their lead through childlike faith as we embark on a deep study of Mark’s Gospel. It is my hope that each of us will be deeply impacted by reading this Gospel together. Devotions are available at church, and I hope that you will all join us as we get to know Jesus a little better over the course of the summer.
Blessings on your Week –
