The rescuer has come. And he is on an all-out kingdom invasion. The Gospel of Mark tells the story of God in Jesus breaking in to hostile country, winning back lost ground, and liberating its people. This November we go deeper into the Bible with a reading through Mark you wouldn't expect. If the message of the Gospels is that the kingdom of God has come in Jesus, Mark focuses on the battle scenes.
Words matter. They shape our thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs. It makes them powerful. Gospel. Grace. Faith. Christ. They’re words that describe the heart of Christianity.

It’s the theme of the Bible. It’s the heart of the gospel. It’s the message of Jesus. It’s the hope for the world. But for most of us, it’s missed or misunderstood.
