This Week's Reading And Question of the Week

Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday. And as you meditate on them, consider the Question of the Week:

How do I respond to God’s call? Am I willing to change my life to follow Christ?

Sunday's Scripture Reading
  • 1 Samuel 3:3b-10, 19
  • Psalm 40:2, 4, 7-101
  • Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20
  • John 1:35-4

1 Samuel 3:10, 19

When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
the LORD came and revealed his presence,
calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel!”
Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

Samuel grew up, and the LORD was with him,
not permitting any word of his to be without effect.

Speak for your servant is listening
Samuel is given wise counsel by Eli. Eli tells Samuel to make himself available for God to speak (Go, lie down); he tells Samuel to not be presumptuous about God speaking (if He calls you); he tells Samuel to respond to the word of God (Speak, LORD); and he tells Samuel to humble himself before God and His word (Your servant hears).

What a beautiful way to respond to God’s Word! It isn’t that God does not know where we are before we tell Him, but it tells God and it reminds us we are simply before Him as servants, asking what He wants us to do.

The LORD was with him
Is there anything better than this? To have, and to know you have, the LORD with you? For the Christian, we can know we have God with us: If God is for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31)

Family Promise always enjoys being a part of the All Souls Family and pot luck, so please mark your calendars and SAVE THE DATE of February 10, 6:00 pm in the Pine Room for our FAMILY PROMISE POT LUCK.

Question of the Week

How are you doing answering this past week's question of the week? Is there something I realize that I changed after encountering the Lord? Is there something I realize now that I should change?
