COCU13B.Epiphany 5B.4th February 2018

Readings:
Isaiah 40:21-31
To whom can God be compared? God created the earth and human rulers are short lived. Why should God’s people complain that God has forgotten them? Those who wait on God will be renewed.
Psalm 147:1-11, 20c
An exhortation to praise God for the way God restores those who have been exiled and broken, for the way God provides for God’s people and for the creatures of earth, and for the way God treasures those who honour God.
1 Corinthians 9:16-23
In his preaching of the Gospel, Paul explains how he becomes all things to all people in order to win them for Christ.
Mark 1:29-39
Jesus heals Simon’s mother-in-law and then many sick and demonised people come to be healed. After that Jesus goes off alone to pray, but Simon and others track him down. Then Jesus leads them off to other towns to preach and heal.
(Summaries of lectionary texts by John van de Laar, Sacredise)
