“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
     who will prepare your way - a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’”

Mark 1: 2-3
September 3, 2017
Chaplain's Corner
Early this past Spring, I began praying through where God wanted to lead our students through our Chapels during this school year. Throughout that process, I kept being drawn to the Gospel of Mark. I am more convinced than ever that our students (as well as each of us) need to know exactly who Jesus Christ was and is as well as what Jesus Christ did and does.

Of the four Gospel writers, Mark’s account of Jesus is the most compact in size. One of the unique features of Mark is his usage of the word “euthéos” (which translates to the word “immediately”)…used more than 40 times, which is more than the rest of the New Testament combined. The frequent use of that word throughout the Gospel of Mark reminds us that there was nothing about Jesus’ life and/or ministry that was coincidental…everything had (and still has) a Divine purpose and plan which is carried out in Divine timing. Our students need to know that there is nothing about their lives and/or mission that is coincidental…everything has had, does, and will have a Divine purpose which is carried out in Divine timing.

This past Wednesday in Chapel, Jason Mcleod (the student pastor at Prince Avenue Baptist Church), launched our journey through the Book of Mark by examining the life, mission and passion of John the Baptist.

As you are in your homes, in your cars, and around the table this upcoming week, read Mark 1:1-11 together. Discuss John’s primary mission…how we are each called that same mission…and what that specifically looks like for you and your family.
