OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 16)

JESUS AT THE CENTER OF THE MISSION

January 16, 2018
Today’s gospel: Mark 1:29-39

Jesus is at the center of our faith. He is our God, our Savior, our King, our Lord and our Master. Our task is to proclaim him so that all would come to faith in him. Everything that is good, that is important to us, revolves around him. And so it is with family and mission.

Jesus called on his first disciples to follow him, to the extent of leaving their families. But that is not to abandon their families, but rather, to bless them. And so Jesus went to the house of Simon and Andrew, and healed Simon’s mother-in-law (v.29-31). Jesus himself left his own family, in order to minister to others. He looked to his larger family, those who were children of God, in order to bring well-being to their lives. He healed those who were sick and drove out demons from those possessed (v.32-34).

So Jesus came to preach the good news, the very purpose for which he had come (v.38). He preached and drove out demons throughout the whole of Galilee (v.39). This too is our mission. We are to proclaim the gospel of salvation in Jesus, we are to bring spiritual well-being to people, and we are to assault the dominion of the evil one and help establish the Kingdom of God in the world.

To be fruitful, we need to be deeply connected with God. We need to be prayerful. This is to be just like Jesus, who rose early before dawn, went to a deserted place, and prayed (v.35). We are to be holy, so that we can be useful instruments for the Kingdom. We are to be holy warriors. Then we can be families on mission.
