Bible Text: 
Mark 1:14-20

In worship for these several weeks, we're camping out in the first chapter of the first-written gospel in the Bible: The Gospel According to Mark. Mark is going to introduce us to the good news in the context of or against the backdrop of the bad news. One of those ways of describing the "bad news" is that we are caught in a lifetime of futility and meaninglessness. We can cope with the "bad news" 
We can change the "bad news" of our lives by listening to the Call of Jesus. Enough of the simpering excuses. Enough of trying to defer and delegate and delay. The amazing, wonderful gospel, the good news of Jesus, the calling of God, is addressed to you today. 
Jesus is calling: "Come, follow me."  And then all the rest will fall into place.
