First Lesson (Jonah 3:1-5, 10)

The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, saying, 2 “Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.” 3 So Jonah set out and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days’ walk across. 4 Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s walk. And he cried out, “Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” 5 And the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and everyone, great and small, put on sackcloth.

10 When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them; and he did not do it.

Gospel & Sermon for Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021
Worship From Home Resources

Psalm 62:5-12

5 For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be      shaken.
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my

    refuge is in God.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before        him; God is a refuge for us.

9 Those of low estate are but a breath, those of high estate are a        delusion; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter        than a breath.
10 Put no confidence in extortion,
   and set no vain hopes on robbery;
   if riches increase, do not set your heart on


11 Once God has spoken;
   twice have I heard this: that power belongs

   to God,
12 and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
   For you repay to all according to their work

Second Lesson (1 Corinthians 7:29-31)

29 I mean, brothers and sisters, the

appointed time has grown short; from now

on, let even those who have wives be as

though they had none, 30 and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no possessions, 31 and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.

Gospel (Mark 1:14-20)

The Gospel of the Lord according to Luke

Glory to you, O Lord

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”

16 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20 Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.

The Gospel of the Lord                 Praise to you, O Christ
