John the Baptist: The Man, Ministry & Message

As always, excited as we continue our studies in Mark’s gospel and particularly excited this week as we look at John the Baptist.

John the Baptist stands out as a memorable character. He lived in the wilderness, wore garments made of camel hair, ate locusts and wild honey, and was the cousin of Jesus Christ. John bridged the gap between the Old and New Testament and ended 400 years of silence on the expectation of the promised Messiah by preparing the way for the coming of Jesus. 

We will look at the example of John the Baptist as a witness who continually pointed to Jesus. His life and message were marked with simplicity, humility and sincerity. We can learn much from him as we share the gospel with others and seek to live our lives for Jesus.

This Thursday (25 April) at Calvary in Motherwell, we will be challenged by this servant of the Lord and discover lessons that we can take from this iconic preacher. If you’re free this Thursday, we extend to you a warm invitation to join with us.
