“Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.” (Mark 1:35 NLT).
I had never really noticed this odd little section (sometimes reading in a different translation will do that). It is a powerful reminder of the need for time alone with God: if Jesus, who is fully divine, needs time alone with His Heavenly Father in order to do the work he was sent to do, how much more do we.
I hope that as you begin your study of Mark, that it will bring you closer to Him whose example we all follow.
