Have You Found it? – Second Sunday after the Epiphany [1/19/20]

Today’s Passage: John 1:29-42

Message [used with permission from A Sermon for Every Sunday]: Have You Found it? – Second Sunday after the Epiphany [1/19/20] by Jim Somerville, pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday.
Have you found what you’re looking for? Jim Somerville begins this week’s sermon by quoting a U2 song that begins with these words: “I have climbed the highest mountains, I have run through the fields…but I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.” That song has haunted an entire generation, because it makes them wonder, “What about me? Have I found what I’m looking for?” In this week’s Gospel lesson, John 1:29-42, two of John’s disciples come looking for Jesus, and when they find him they seem to have found exactly what they were looking for.  Jesus asks the question directly, “What are you looking for?” If you cannot answer this question or even if you think you have it figured out, listen as Somerville explores this question and gives his opinion on how to answer this age old question.

Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [1/19/20]

I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:4-9 (NIV)

A man will be justified by faith when, excluded from righteousness of works, he by faith lays hold of the righteousness of Christ, and clothed in it, appears in the sight of God not as a sinner, but as righteous. – John Calvin

Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [1/18/20]

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.

Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us.  None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

Psalm 40:4-5 (NIV)

Father, show us how to seek your kingdom and your righteousness for nothing in our lives should be more important than our focus on You. Amen.
