A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC!!
A BIG welcome to the Navarro College Choir and our dear friend from the Navarro Baptist Student Ministry (BSM), Jeff Turner! Pray for Jeff as he ministers to students on the Navarro Campus.
Well, today I hope you are hungry for a sandwich! The reason I say that is because this morning we have the privilege to continue in our sermon series on the Gospel of Mark. We’ve titled the series, “The reMARKable Life of Jesus.” We learned in this series that Mark was written to a Roman audience, and Romans loved action, especially miracles. Thus Mark contains more miracles per chapter than any other biblical book. In addition, the most common word in Mark is the little word “euthus.” It means “quickly” or “immediately.” It appears 40 times in 16 chapters. The action never stops. It’s as if a Hollywood producer said, “Lights, camera, ACTION!”
WELL…The action today brings us to a SANDWICH! The title of this morning’s message is “2 Stories – 1 Sandwich”
