“Being Gentle with the Weak” (Matthew 12:15-21)  Sunday, July 1, 2018

Call to Worship

 

L:         God’s invitation extends to the far corners of this world.

 

P:         Let all who hunger come and find manna, the living bread of heaven!

 

L:         God’s invitation is heard in the streets of our neighborhood.

 

P:         Let all who thirst come and find refreshment, a river of living water!

 

U:        The wedding feast of the Lamb beckons all people; let us make haste!

 

Scripture (Matthew 12:15-21)                    

Our reading comes from the good news according to Matthew. 

15When Jesus became aware of this, he departed. Many crowds followed him, and he cured all of them,

 16and he ordered them not to make him known.

17This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

 18“Here is my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles

 19He will not wrangle or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

20He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory.

21And in his name the Gentiles will hope.”

Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.
