Second Sunday after the Epiphany


Announcements


Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 40:1-11


1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry.

2 He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.

4 Happy are those who make the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods.

5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted.

6 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.

7 Then I said, "Here I am; in the scroll of the book it is written of me.

8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart."

9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; see, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord.

10 I have not hidden your saving help within my heart, I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.

11 Do not, O Lord, withhold your mercy from me; let your steadfast love and your faithfulness keep me safe forever.

art high above all the earth;​

Thou art exalted far above all gods.​


I exalt Thee! I exalt Thee!​

I exalt Thee, O Lord!​

“The Love of God”

Hymn #86


The love of God is greater far​

Than tongue or pen can ever tell;​

It goes beyond the highest star,​

And reaches to the lowest hell​

The guilty pair, bowed down with care,​

God gave His Son to win;​

His erring child He reconciled,​

And pardoned from his sin.​


O love of God, how rich and pure!​

How measure-less and strong!​

It shall forever more endure-​

The saints’ and angels’ song!​


When years of time shall pass away,

And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,

When men who here refuse to pray,

On rocks and hills and mounains call,

God’s love so sure shall still endure,

All measusreless and strong;

Redeeming grace to Adam’s race-

The saints’ and angels’ song.


O love of God, how rich and pure!​

How measure-less and strong!​

It shall forever more endure-​

The saints’ and angels’ song!​


Could we with ink the ocean fill,​

And were the skies of parchment made,​

Were ev-’ry stalk on earth a quill,​

And ev-’ry man a scribe by trade,​

To write the love of God above​

Would drain the ocean dry;​

Nor could the scroll contain the whole,​

Tho’ stretched from sky to sky.​


O love of God, how rich and pure!​

How measure-less and strong!​

It shall forever more endure-​

The saints’ and angels’ song!​


Scripture: Isaiah 49:1-7


1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry.

2 He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.

4 Happy are those who make the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods.

5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted.

6 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.

7 Then I said, "Here I am; in the scroll of the book it is written of me.

8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart."

10 I have not hidden your saving help within my heart, I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.

11 Do not, O Lord, withhold your mercy from me; let your steadfast love and your faithfulness keep me safe forever.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:1-9

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes,

2 To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:

3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

4 I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus,

5 for in every way you have been enriched in him, in speech and knowledge of every kind—

6 just as the testimony of Christ has been strengthened among you—

7 so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ.

8 He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord

Scripture: John 1:29-42


29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, "Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

30 This is he of whom I said, "After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.'

31 I myself did not know him; but I came baptizing with water for this reason, that he might be revealed to Israel."

32 And John testified, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him.

33 I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, "He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'

34 And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God."

35 The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples,

36 and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, "Look, here is the Lamb of God!"

37 The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.

38 When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher), "where are you staying?"

39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon.

40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

41 He first found his brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Anointed ).

42 He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter ).
