The ministry of Jesus began just as His Father said it would (Mk 1:1-2). The words of the Father spoken over the life of the Son were His secure foundation, His road map and His springboard into action in every situation.

Jesus declared, ‘The time has come’ (Mk 1:15) because He saw in every situation the moment pregnant with God’s purpose (kairos), such that He was able to move in the power of the Holy Spirit to bring to everyone He met just what they needed. Mark’s fast paced narrative illustrates for us how this enabled Jesus to pursue His Father’s will without being deviated or distracted from His course, by giving Himself completely to every God-appointed kairos.
