Call to Worship
L: God makes springs gush forth in the valleys, flowing between the plains.
P: We drink from the well of salvation!
L: God brings food from the earth and bread to strengthen the human heart.
P: We feast on the abundance of God’s grace!
U: O Lord, how manifold are your works, in wisdom you have made them all!
Scripture (John 12:20-26)
Our reading comes from the good news according to John.
20Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks.
21They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”
22Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
23Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
24Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
25Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
26Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.
Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.
