Mark 1:1-8

Mark’s Gospel opens with a powerful statement about Jesus. He is the Son of God. In a sense Mark begins with the end in mind since few will recognize Jesus during his ministry. Unlike Matthew and Luke, he bypasses the infancy narratives and takes the reader to Jesus’ adult life through John the Baptist.

Help me to help others see that “preparing the way” for you has far greater implications than our human and limited celebration of your Incarnation. Through your glorious return, we will celebrate for all eternity.
