What might it take to wake us up?

today’s daily text

Wednesday, April 7
Psalm 45:1-9
Exodus 40:24-Leviticus 1:17; Mark 1:1-8

speaking on Mark 1:1-8…

“The main thing Mark gets us to do in this opening passage is to sense the shock of the new thing God was doing. If you’re sick and unable to sleep much, sometimes the night seems to go on forever. But then just when you’re dozing a bit, suddenly the alarm clock was off: it really is morning. That’s the mood here. It raises the question for us too: where are we asleep today, in our churches, our communities, our personal lives? What might it take to wake us up?” –N.T. Wright
