Scripture Reading, Mark 1:9-15

9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Song of Rejoicing

Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me



Further Reflection

*Take some time to read the words and sing the songs before Sunday and rejoice in the Lord. This will help you to engage in the singing, especially if the songs are unfamiliar.

*Sin has separated us from God, but Jesus has done away with our sin by his death and resurrection and therefore we can have a full, intimate relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Do you come to the worship service as someone who is separated from God?
