Crown on the Rise. Reflection for marriages. Mark 1: 14-20


“Repent, and believe in the gospel”

From the Gospel according to Mark 1:14-20

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they abandoned their nets and followed him. He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.

The Gospel of the Lord

Crown on the Rise.

Jesus announced that the Kingdom of God at hand, and the Kingdom of God has already arrived. How does this sound? It is Incredible, isn´t it? Well, allow God to reign in your soul and in your marriage, and you will witness that it’s no joke.

Applied to married life:

Sophie: Are you coming with me, my king?

Andrew: And what’s with “my king”? Have you promoted me that much?

Sophie: Well, if you reign in my life, it means God reigns in my life.

Andrew: Ah, that’s great. The miracles of God. You have gone from being fed up with me to wanting to crown me. Glory to God.

Sophie: Glory to God. By the way, there’s a toy crown there, from the children´s costumes. Can I take a selfie with you to celebrate?

Andrew: Come here, my queen.


Queen of the Universe, pray for us.
