Trinity 2 – Vocation (Father’s Day)


Led by Gavin

Romans 5.1–8

Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.

Matthew 9.35 – 10.8

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.’

Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon, also known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax-collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him.

5These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: ‘Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news, “The kingdom of heaven has come near.” Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received without payment; give without payment.

 Romans 5:1-8 read by Helen Campbell

The Bible reading is read from Romans Chapter 5 verses 1 to 8.

We have been made right with God because of our faith.
So we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through our faith, Christ has brought us into a
blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy.
And we are happy because of the
hope we have of sharing God’s glory.
And we also have joy when we have troubles
because we know that these troubles produce patience.
And patience produces character,
and character produces hope.
And this hope will never disappoint us,
because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts.
God gave us his love through the Holy Spirit,
whom God has given to us.

Christ died for us while we were still weak.
We were living against God,
but at the right time, Christ died for us.
Very few people will die to save the life of someone else.
Although someone might possibly die for a good person.
But Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
In this way God shows his great love for us.

This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God
