Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
Collect of the Day
O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Psalter: Psalm 30, 32
Lessons: Exodus 25:1-22, Colossians 3:1-17, Matthew 4:18-25
Following Jesus most often means not following "the crowd." This is not always as clear-cut a choice as it may seem. There remain today multitudes who would follow Jesus just to see what is in it for them. They are the ones who, when they see their dreams shattered, will tragically fall away because of disappointment.
He is Exalted
