The First Followers

The First Followers

John 1:35-51


Last week we heard the witness of John the Baptist.  This week, Jesus takes center spot as people begin following him.  Jesus’ first words of the Gospel are to these followers, “What are you seeking?”  It’s an inviting and searching question.  If he were to ask you that today, how would you answer it?  The first followers then respond with a question, “Where are you abiding Jesus?”  It’s a way of saying, “If we come to you Jesus, what will we find?”  And, in this text, Jesus makes two great promises to these first followers.  Come and see what they are this Sunday.

Communion At the end of Sunday’s live-streamed service we will again take communion  “together”.  I invite you to prepare elements ahead of time which represent the body and blood of Jesus.  The elements do not need to be “special.”  Please use whatever you have at home (no need for a special trip to the grocery store).  Who may partake?  All who give their allegiance to our Lord Jesus Christ and follow him.  At the end of the service, please be ready to eat and drink with your families, as we partake as a church family.
