Bullhorn Sermon Series

August 5th, 2018

Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost.

Pastor Paul is preaching.

Mark 1:40-45

Before we stick our necks out there to engage in any task as anxiety-
inducing as faith sharing, it’s only natural to seek a solid explanation as to why we
need to do so in the first place. Can’t I just follow Jesus and keep my faith to
myself? It’s a valid question but the answer is already evident in the question
itself. Jesus stopped at nothing to share the Good News of God’s love with all He
came in contact with. Truly “following Jesus” demands that we do the same. The
leper in Mark 1 couldn’t help but share the Good News of Jesus Christ with
everyone he met. To him, it was a natural and joy-filled act. Perhaps his story can
offer some pointers for us.
