Scripture for Sunday, December 27

Mark 1:9-20

So soon after Christmas, we may not feel ready to jump from the story of Jesus’ birth to his adult ministry. But Mark’s Gospel goes straight to the proclamation of the good news, first by John the Baptist and then by Jesus.

We might be curious about the backstory, but Mark’s focus is on the essentials. The time has come to repent, believe, and follow Jesus.
