Run Time: 12:21. Gospel: Mk 1:14-20.
Power and pleasure are so easy find in our modern world that we can subconsciously … start thinking that we can create a heaven on earth and skipping over this whole nasty business of God. We forget, and so we’re reminded today by Paul, that the world in its present form is passing away. That, in other words, what we are here and now is not the end of what we shall be, but rather it is the first step in God’s fulfilling promise of drawing us to Himself. What is put into the mouth of Christ in John’s Gospel – ‘When I am lifted up I will draw all men to Myself.’
