The Gospel according to Mark 4: 35-41


..as read on 21st June 2015

On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples:
“Let us cross to the other side.”
Leaving the crowd, they took Jesus with them in the boat just as he was.
And other boats were with him.
A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat,
so that it was already filling up.
Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion.   


They woke him and said to him,
“Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”
He woke up,
rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!”
The wind ceased and there was great calm.
Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified?
Do you not yet have faith?”



There will be storms in our life. What is to be firm is our faith in God.  It is this faith that will see us through our darkest hours into a brighter dawn.

The Kingdom of God


The Gospel  as read on Sunday 14th June 2015:  Mark 4:26-34
He also said, 'This is what the kingdom of  God is like. A man scatters seed on the land. Night and day, while he sleeps, when he is awake, the seed is sprouting and growing; how, he does not know. Of its own accord the land produces first the shoot, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 
What is expected of us is to do Good irrespective of our Status or the Situation. Unaware to man the good that he does reaps him rewards.sermon
And when the crop is ready, at once he starts to reap because the harvest has come. 
'And on judgement day it is this good, that will bear him witness.' 
He also said, 'What can we say that the kingdom is like? What parable can we find for it?  It is like a mustard seed which, at the time of its sowing, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth. Yet once it is sown it grows into the biggest shrub of them all and puts out big branches so that the birds of the air can shelter in its shade.'
The joy of being in God's presence is Heaven. Will God's presence be there for all in Heaven.The similarity is as a mustard seed is to its tree.
