Lessons and Hymns for Epiphany 2 B

These are the Scripture readings you will hear this coming Sunday:

1 Samuel 3:1-10

1 Corinthians 6:12-20

John 1:43-51

The Lord God Is with You and Reveals Himself to You by the Preaching of His Word

The Lord Jesus calls Philip and Nathanael to “come and see” that He is “the Son of God” and “the King of Israel” (John 1:43–49). And they shall see even “greater things than these” (John 1:50). For His body is the temple of God on earth, and by His priestly sacrifice the heavens will be opened to all who believe and are baptized into Him. Therefore, He calls Philip and Nathanael, first to hear His Word and then to speak as apostles, even as He once called Samuel and established him “as a prophet of the Lord” (1 Sam. 3:20). As the Lord was with Samuel “and let none of his words fall to the ground” (1 Sam. 3:19), He also accompanies and upholds the preachers of His Word in our day. Thus, by the Gospel that is preached to you, “your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you” (1 Cor. 6:19). Since your body thus belongs to the Body of Christ, is meant “for the Lord” and shall be raised up like Him, now “glorify God in your body” (1 Cor. 6:13–20).

These are the hymns we will sing:

Lord, This Day We’ve Come to Worship (LSB 911)

The Only Son from Heaven (LSB 402)

“Come, Follow Me” the Savior Spake (LSB 688)

Now Rest Beneath Night’s Shadows (LSB 880)
