THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Exodus 24:3-11

There is no fellowship with God apart from the shedding of blood. Even when the children of Israel have promised to do all that God commands, they need to be sprinkled with blood to make them holy and acceptable to God. For sinful they are; sinful they will remain. But once God has cleansed them with blood, He hosts a meal of fellowship as a reflection of their blessed union with Him.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 84 (p.96)

We can have great joy as we think about all the LORD has done.

SECOND LESSON: Ephesians 4:1-7,11-16

The Word creates our love for one another. That word gives us abilities and then the desire to use those abilities in service to one another. Our fellowship with one another is strengthened through an imitation of Christ’s patience with each of us.

GOSPEL: John 6:1-15

Notice the humility in which Jesus displays both His compassion and His almighty power. As soon as it is clear that they will use the renewed strength from the food just eaten to interfere with His saving work on the altar of the cross, He left them.

The Sermon: John 6:1-15

Theme: A Little in God’s Hands

ATTENDANCE AT THE LORD’S HOUSE 59
