Sunday Worship July 12th – Face2Face with Jesus 1: The Fishermen.

Posted on Posted in Latest News

Welcome to our Sunday morning worship. Today we begin a new series looking at face-to-face encounters with Jesus in John’s gospel. But we begin as always by praising our living God:

And now Marjorie will read to us: the reading is John 1:35-42

“35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36
When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’ 37
When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38
Turning round, Jesus saw them following and asked, ‘What do you want?’
They said, ‘Rabbi’ (which means ‘Teacher’), ‘where are you staying?’
39 ‘Come,’ he replied, ‘and you will see.’ So they went and saw where
he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in
the afternoon. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two
who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first
thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, ‘We have
found the Messiah’ (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to
Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, ‘You are Simon son of John. You
will be called Cephas’ (which, when translated, is Peter)”
