Rev. Benjamin Wines
Mark 1:14-20

We look forward to joining you in Worship this Sunday, starting at 11:00AM in the Sanctuary. You can also find our services online at the HVBC YouTube Channel. Today’s sermon is titled, “Immediately”. We will be reading from Mark 1:14-20, and our Call to Worship comes from Psalm 62:5-12.

For God alone my soul waits in silence,
For my hope is from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
My mighty rock, my refuge is in God.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
Those of low estate are but a breath, those of high estate are a delusion;
In the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.
Put no confidence in extortion, and set no vain hopes on robbery;
If riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this;
That power belongs to God,
And steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
For you repay to all according to their work. – from Psalm 62

Questions for Further Reflection:
The disciples in today’s passage make a decision to follow Jesus “immediately,” but remember that their story doesn’t end there.

  • What is something you can do “immediately” to step out in faith?
  • How will you sustain your faith past that immediate moment?
