“And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.” Mark 1:38
When Jesus turned to His disciples and said, "Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth." His purpose was clear. With laser focus precision, He set the course for the activities in the coming days. Although there were several reasons why He came, this purpose was the one at hand and the one He wanted them to digest first. According to this verse, His purpose for coming forth was to preach. Just about everywhere you turn in the Gospels from this point on, you will find Jesus preaching or teaching. He preached in their homes, along the sea shore, in desert places, in the mountains, in the synagogues, and in every city; Jesus was fulfilling His purpose. Jesus charted a course to accomplishing the task He was given by the Father which included equipping others to fulfill their purpose in life.
