    The Day That Changed the Modern World

    September 11, 2001 will be remembered as the day that changed the modern world. As Franklin Roosevelt declared 60 years before, this too is a day that will live in infamy. Most, if not all, of the civilized world paused to reflect on their own lives in light of the catastrophic events at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and rural Pennsylvania. It is in such times that the basics take center stage. We think and pray to God about family and friends, love and forgiveness, and begin to prioritize that which is most important to us.

    Mark’s Gospel emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, this Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus. Mark provides vivid descriptions of the relationships between Jesus and the religious leaders, Jesus and His disciples, and Jesus and the multitudes who sought His miracles.

    Alistair Begg on Following Jesus in a Pluralistic Culture (6 of 8)

    Our world insists that self-gratification is the key to happiness. The Bible, however, declares that if we wish to experience true joy, we must seek God’s pleasure above all else. Pleasing God is not a matter of personal preference, but a priority that everyone is called to take seriously.
