Day 1

Read Mark 1:1-20
Focal Passage Mark 1:1-8


I remember Sunday mornings when I was a 4 year old boy. It was quite a chore for mom to get us eleven children ready for church. Dad drove our car to work milking cows so we kids and mom had to walk the 1Ĺ miles to town to the church. The road was gravel and dusty. When we arrived at church we would be hot and dusty. Mom made us dust off before going into church.

Mom loved to sing praises and specials at church. All of us kids had to sit, listen and be good. One of momís biggest delights was serving God.

I was young then and didnít understand, but now I know that she was preparing me to meet and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

Prayer: Lord, I thank You for my family. I thank You for Your love and guidance. Lord, if it be Your will use me to bring the lost to know You as their personal Savior. Amen
