Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you sent your Son to proclaim your kingdom and to teach with authority. Anoint us with the power of your Spirit that we, too, may bring good news to the afflicted, bind up the brokenhearted, and proclaim liberty to the captive; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
The Lord calls Jonah to preach the message of repentance to the people of Nineveh. Jonah’s message touches their hearts and moves them to repentance.

Psalm 62, page 88 in front of the hymnal
1 Corinthians 7:29-31
God calls on believers to realize that this world id temporary and to live their lives accordingly. Christians use the things of this world without loosing sight of their heavenly goal.
Jesus proclaims the gospel loud and clear, “Repent and believe the good news!” After this, Jesus calls Simon and Andrew to be “fishers of men.” James and John also leave their nets to follow Jesus.
