I’m hoping that we have a great turnout from Edgewood.Just this past week, the Celebrate Recovery band played in the Labor Day parade, AWANA kicked off with a carnival on Wednesday and Second Winders and Entrusted with a Child’s Heart started again on Thursday. Edgewood as we live on mission by gathering, growing, giving and going with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the glory of God!Let’s kick it off with the very first verse and then we’ll look at some of the unique elements of Mark.Grab your Bibles and turn to Mark 1:1: “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” It’s interesting that Mark starts with the launch of Jesus’ formal ministry, unlike Matthew and Luke who begin with the birth narratives.Very little of a church’s calendar, training or communication is spent on activities to reach the lost or help those in need outside the church.There are, however, churches that are more like aircraft carriers.
The crew of an aircraft carrier can launch a plane every 25 seconds—all in a fraction of the space of a typical landing strip. From the pilot to the person who restocks the ship’s vending machines, everyone on a carrier knows his or her particular role and how it supports the mission—to equip, prepare, launch and receive aircraft back from their crucial assignments.It’s a privilege to serve on the flight deck with the people of the U. BTW, let me be clear that I’m not saying that going on a cruise is a bad thing.I’ve heard that they’re a blast…I just don’t want our church to become one.We’re beginning a brand new series this weekend called, “The Gospel of Mark: Servant and Savior.” While I’ve preached many sermons from the gospels, I’ve never preached verse-by-verse through one of them.It’s going to take us some time but we’ll also be taking some breaks as well.
I am so glad that Edgewood is an “aircraft carrier church”! Instead of just living for pleasure you are focused on your God-given purpose.
