St Mark, Evangelist

1 Peter 5:5-14, Ps 89, Mark 16:15-20

Grasp the power

Mark’s gospel is the simplest and most powerful of the synoptic gospels. Anyone who reads it from cover to cover cannot do anything but grasp the sheer power of Jesus, son of God. Mark was with Paul and Barnabas, but abandoned them to go home to Jerusalem. Yet he is with Peter in Rome and probably compiled his gospel there. Have you ever read it continuously from start to finish? Lord, help me to appreciate you the way Mark did.
