Eventually or immediately

Mark 1:10 “And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.”

Mark 1:12 “Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.”

Mark 1:18 “They immediately left their nets and followed Him.”

Mark 1:20 “And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and went after Him.”

Mark 1:21 “Then they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and taught.”

Mark 1:28 “And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee.”

Mark 1:31 “So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.”

“Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.””
–Luke 9:59-62

It’s time for me to get to work. Immediately.

  1. One thing Jason told us in Antioch (during New Testament Survey) was that Mark reads like an action-packed movie; everything in Mark happens, like you said, immediately.
    Also, you mentioned “immediate obedience”, in life group a few years ago we were talking about that very thing. One thing that has stuck with me is that “delayed obedience is actually DISobedience.”

    Have a great Wednesday!
