A Reading from John 1:35-51
 
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. 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?” 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. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated Anointed). 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).
 
The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Nathanael replied, “Rabbi, you are the God’s own; you’re the ruler of Israel!” Jesus answered, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Chosen One.”

Questions

How many questions do you think you have asked and/or answered in your lifetime? How many have you answered this week?

Questions are interesting. They help us grow, know more, and become better humans. They inform us. Our answers help show the world who we are. We share ourselves through our replies.

Never stop asking questions.

Be curious.

Br vulnerable; answer the question or ask it if you want. Show the world your beauty.
Gracious God, we thank you for Your love and grace, and the opportunity to serve you. We thank You for the many blessings You bestowed upon us and we ask that you continue to bless us and grant us Your favor. Lord may your Spirit give strength to all your people as they work and witness in your world. Unite us in your truth and love and help us to show your love to others.
 
Gracious God, comfort all who sorrow, provide strength of all who suffer, and hear the cry of those in misery and need. In their afflictions show them your mercy, and give us, we pray, the strength to serve them, for the sake of Jesus Christ who suffered for us.
 
Loving God, you have made all nations to be one family, and you sent Jesus Christ to proclaim the good news of salvation to all people. Pour out your Spirit on the whole creation and hasten the coming of your reign of justice and love among the nations of the world. Guide with your wisdom those who govern the nations of the earth, that justice and peace may increase, until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love. That we, globally, having experienced the terror and fear of this past week/year, may find unity of purpose not in revenge but in rebuilding our hope and healing the pain of the common tragedy which unites us. That those who have died may find peace and joy among the communion of saints.
 
Heavenly Creator, we pray for our families and friends. May we be able to help each other just as you love and help us. We pray for those in need, for sick people, for those in hospital, and for those with other problems.
 
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
