Jesus unrolled the scroll
and found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
because he has anointed me.”
Call to praise
Lord, open our lips
and our mouths will proclaim your praise.
You are good to those who wait for you,
to all who seek you.
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
and will be for ever. Amen.
Psalm 105.1-5, 40-43
Give thanks, and acclaim God’s name,
make known God’s deeds among the peoples.
O sing to the Lord, sing praise;
tell all his wonderful works!
Be proud of God’s holy name,
let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.
Consider the Lord, who is strong;
constantly seek his face.
Remember the wonders of the Lord,
the miracles and judgments pronounced.
When they asked for food God sent quails;
and filled them with bread from heaven.
The Lord pierced the rock; water gushed;
it flowed in the desert like a river.
For God remembered the holy promise,
which was given to Abraham, his servant.
God brought out the people with joy,
the chosen ones with shouts of rejoicing.
My heart is ready, O God;
I will sing your praise.
Your steadfast love is higher than the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let your glory shine over all the earth.
Call to discipleship
Jesus said, Let anyone with ears to hear listen.
You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength,
and with all your mind;
and your neighbor as yourself.
Do this, and you will live.
Lord Jesus, you have the words of eternal life.
Mark 1: 16-20
As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.
When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Our Father who art in heaven
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil,
for thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever. Amen.
Now to God,
who by the power at work within us
is able to accomplish abundantly far more
than all we can ask or imagine,
be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
to all generations, forever and ever.
