God Keeps Moving

God Keeps Moving

When Jesus arrives at the home of Simon’s mother-in-law in Mark 1 and begins healing those who are sick, everyone naturally wants him to stay and keep healing. However, Jesus invites his disciples to come with him to the next village so that he can proclaim the gospel there also. God and the Kingdom of God keep moving, and we are invited to come along, but would we selfishly rather God stay here with us than move on somewhere else?

Our scriptures this week include the passage Chess is discussing, Mark 1:29-39, as well as Isaiah 40:21-31, Psalm 147:1-11, 20c and 1 Corinthians 9:16-23.
