IN REFLECTION

This past week we began our study through Mark 13 and considered the prophecy of the temple's destruction, the warnings to the disciples (be wary of false messiahs and false alarms) and the exhortation to be steadfast in the face of persection. I hope this week you will resolve to endure the trials you face, knowing that we have the provision of the Holy Spirit and the promise of final salvation in the end.

Listen to Sunday's sermon "The Beginning of the End - pt1"

IN PREPARATION

This week we will continue working through Mark 13. Take some time to read through the chapter in its entirety and pray that God will give us confidence in the "main and plain things" while granting us clarity, understanding and humility as we seek to discern the difficult things as well.
