On Tour: Success? | Rev. Steve Jones

Passage: Mark 1:29-39

"When they found him, they said to him, “Everyone is searching for you.” He answered, “Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also, for that is what I came out to do.” And he went throughout all Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons." -Mark 1:37-39

In our journey through Christ's mission in Galilee we have seen the beginning fruits of the mission of Jesus in the gospels. Christ shows his authority as a powerful teacher and his divinity through the miraculous healings he performs for the gathered crowds. Certainly one could call this a successful ministry, yet Christ has a vision of something greater a coming work that would extend God's grace to all people.
