Worship Preparation: February 3, 2019

Sunday, February 3, 2019

Read the sermon text: John 6:1-21

Read the sermon summary: In our passage for this Sunday, we see two miracles of Jesus. In the first, he takes five loaves and two fishes and provides enough food for thousands of people. The people respond to this sign declaring that Jesus is “the Prophet who is come into the world.” In the second miracle, Jesus walks on the water and identifies himself to his disciples with the divine name, “I am.” In this way Jesus is shown to be the very one he, and other witnesses, had claimed (5:19-47). In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: What connection might there be to the reference to Moses in 5:46 and the feeding miracle, especially in light of how the crowds identify Jesus in 6:14? How their response inadequate? Can you think of any connections between these two events/miracles and events in the Old Testament related to Moses? What is the result of Jesus’ identity becoming known to the disciples?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
It Is Well With My Soul
When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul
 
Chorus
It is well with my soul
It is well
It is well with my soul
 
Tho' Satan should buffet
Tho' trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ hath regarded
My helpless estate
And hath shed His own blood
For my soul
 
My sin O the bliss
Of this glorious tho't
My sin not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross
And I bear it no more
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord O my soul
 
And Lord haste the day
When the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound
And the Lord shall descend
Even so it is well
With my soul
