4th Sunday After Epiphany
Membership Growth and Discipleship Sunday
“The True Prophet”
Mark 1: 21-28
God’s holy message is love. It is a love that was shown to us by Jesus in his life, death and resurrection. It is a love that we are all called to share in this most trying of times. It is the marker of those who follow Jesus – then everyone will know that you are my disciples.
The pandemic has actually forced us into more practical applications of our faith. It has even forced us to re-connect with loved ones we would not even bother with during normal times. The pandemic has forced upon us the need to grow in faith. It has, I hope, set you upon a journey towards Christian maturity.
Our theme properly identifies what every Christian SHOULD be: a true prophet. Because the only other kind is a false prophet. Be a true prophet.
