Have you created Jesus in your own image? Is He irresistible or is He just your favourite ice cream?
MESSAGE INVITATION / SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
- Read through Mark’s gospel and reflect on every place to you see the words “amazed" or “crowd” to help you get a glimpse of Jesus’ irresistible life and words.
- Consider any ways that you’ve created Jesus in your own image (political, cultural, spiritual, religious, philosophical, etc.). In prayer over the next month, ask God to give you fresh perspective on who Jesus is.
- If you’re even a light reader, put “The Jesus I Never Knew” on your top reading list (by Phillip Yancy). A engaging and accessible read.
- Before the end of the the year commit to reading through all 4 gospels in a short period of time (1-2 weeks, over a weekend, or an evening off).
