Daily Readings in Mark

Massive news_wide

As we walk our way through Mark’s Gospel on Sunday mornings, we’re going to be posting daily readings from Mark.

Why not take on reading a bit of Mark’s gospel each day? Whether you’ve been in the habit of daily bible reading or not – whether you’re already reading something else, or not – whether you’re here on Sunday mornings or…you get the idea!

The first one is below so you can get a flavour. Or you can see an archive of all the posts so far HERE.

Day 1 – Mark 1 v1

Pray: Father, thank that your word is living and active – please change me by your word today. Amen

Read Mark 1:1

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God,[b]

1. Verse 1 is Mark’s title. What kind of book does he say this is the beginning of?

2. What is the good news he’s going to write about?

3. Think about some good-in-a-life-changing-way news that you’ve been told. How does Jesus compare?

Prayer ideas:

  • Spend some time asking God to help you know Jesus better as you read Mark’s gospel so that you will treat him as the best news ever.
  • Pray that he’ll keep working in your life to change you.
  • Pray for the rest of your church family as we study Mark’s Gospel together.

Hungry for more?
Why not take a sneaky peak at what’s ahead by reading on in Mark’s Gospel – the Jesus story was probably originally told in big chunks, not a verse or two at a time. Why not read a bit more now? OR….

It’s possible to read through the whole gospel in a couple of hours. Could you set aside a chunk of time (or two, or three) this week to read all the way through?
