Repent and Believe — Now!

Mark 1:14-15 marks a turning point in history when Jesus proclaims, “The time has come.” Israel had been waiting for the Messiah for thousands of years, the Promised One who would suffer and die for our sins and bring deliverance from sin. Our response to the sacrificial death of Christ on our behalf should be one of repentance and faith, awe and worship.

Our Lord’s Baptism

Mark 1:9-11 describes the baptism of Jesus in specific fulfillment of prophecy (Isaiah 53:10, Isaiah 64:1, Isaiah 61:l-2, and Isaiah 42:1-4). Each member of the Trinity is present at this baptism. Jesus enters the water, the Father affirms that Jesus is His eternal Son, and the Holy Spirit descends to authenticate and empower Christ. In a similar way each member of the Trinity is intimately, personally, redemptively working for you and your salvation every day.

The Greatest Prophet

John the Baptist was the prophet who ushered in the new era of the Messiah. His message was a call to genuine repentance that leads to a changed life. He was humble before the almighty Christ. John foretold that Jesus the Messiah would give the Holy Spirit to His followers to enable them to walk in His ways.
