In the gospel of Mark we meet a Jesus who conveys a great deal of urgency.
The word “immediately” is used 40 times in Mark’s gospel. Jesus is always doing things immediately: Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat. People’s response is that way too: Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
It’s a reminder that the call from God requires a response and there’s no time to lose.
- What is God calling you to do? And when is God calling you to do it?
- What comes to mind when you hear the word “immediately?”
