September 15: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Living a ‘faith of the impossible’ attracts news that will spread quickly – even when you don’t ask for any of it. Mark 1:24-28

Jesus didn’t want to draw mass-scale attention to himself; he just wanted to go about doing what he was sent to do. Mark 1:33-34; 42-44; 3:12

People have a real hard time following even simple instructions. Mark 1:43

Much love.
