2022 Week 2

Week 2 Mark 2

My hope is that all of you have had an amazing start to the week in the Lord! 

This past Sunday we quickly moved through Mark Chapter 2 and continued through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Take time this week to read through Mark 2 again with open eyes and open ears as God continues to grow you into the likeness of His one and only Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

If you have questions or would like any further insights or help as you journey through His Word, please, don’t hesitate to comment or send us a message.

2022 Week 1

During yesterday’s powerful message, Pastor Carl reminded us that Sunday mornings should not and can not be the only “spiritual food” we feast on from week to week. Abiding in Christ involves an ever growing need to dive deeper and deeper into the word of God. Scripture is God breathed. It reveals the very character of our Creator and His pleasing and perfect will. 

Following each weeks message, we will post a list of the previous Sunday’s foundational scripture along with other supporting scripture references. Spend some intentional time each day reading through and reviewing these verses and ask God to draw you closer into Him. If you have trouble understanding any of the scriptures or just have questions please comment or send us a message. 

“As you begin this new year, be willing to do whatever it takes to make a straight path between you and God” - Carl Blackburn

Making the straight path:

  1. Repent- Mark 1:14-15
  2. Follow Jesus- Mark 1:17-18
  3. Make/Take time with Jesus-Mark 1:35
  4. Walk with other followers-Mark 1:36-38
  5. Do some good for the Kingdom- Mark 1:21-34 & 1:39-45

Bible 365

Happy New Year!

“But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’””

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭4:4‬

With the start of a new year comes all of our resolutions and new commitments. We usually stick to it for a while but then we seem to fall back into old habits and our brand new year quickly begins to look like all the others that came before.

To truly see a change this year in your life, the lives of your family and friends, and a change in our world, we must first commit ourselves to growing in the knowledge and wisdom of God’s Word! 

I am encouraging all of you to commit to daily reading of the Bible and there is a helpful way we can all achieve this goal. If you have the Faithlife Study Bible app and account, or you can visit to log into your account. Make sure you are joined to St. John UMC and once connected, you will have access to the “Bible365” reading plan. This plan will take us through the entire Bible in 2022.

If you need assistance please reply to this post and someone will be glad to help. I look forward to reading His Word along side each of you everyday this year!
