Now is the Time: A Journey Through Mark 1:9-15

In our latest podcast episode, we delve into the profound message of Mark 1:9-15, a passage that marks a pivotal moment in the Gospel and Jesus' ministry. This sermon, titled "Now is the Time," presented at St. Paul's & St. Barnabas, invites us to reflect on the significance of Jesus' baptism, His temptation, and the beginning of His earthly mission.

This episode isn't just a recount of biblical events; it's an invitation to see how these moments are foundational for understanding Jesus' mission and how they call us to live out the Kingdom of God in our daily lives. Through repentance, faith, and a commitment to the gospel, we are invited into a story that is as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.

We encourage you to listen, reflect, and see how "Now is the Time" to deepen your faith and understanding of God's Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is at hand, urging us to turn towards God with all our hearts and engage in the mission Jesus has laid out for us.

Join us in this reflective journey as we explore the depths of Mark 1:9-15 and the timeless call to action it presents. Your faith journey is personal, but it's also part of the larger narrative of God's Kingdom unfolding in our world today.
