This past weekend, Pastor Micah looked at Mark 1:1-8 CSB.
1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you;
he will prepare your way.
3 A voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way for the Lord;
make his paths straight!
4 John came baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and they were baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
6 John wore a camel-hair garment with a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts and wild honey.
7 He proclaimed, “One who is more powerful than I am is coming after me. I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the strap of his sandals.
8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
1. God is active across history to redeem his people.
2. God involves us in the fulfillment of his plan.
3. Our purpose is to point people to Jesus.
We publish new sermons to our podcast feed on a weekly basis. If you are traveling on the weekend, have to miss the sermon due to work, or just want a refresher before you go deeper on the text in your Life group, the Brainerd Baptist Church podcast will be a helpful resource for you.
