Today’s Passage: John 1:29-42
Message [used with permission from A Sermon for Every Sunday]: Have You Found it? – Second Sunday after the Epiphany [1/19/20] by Jim Somerville, pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday.
Have you found what you’re looking for? Jim Somerville begins this week’s sermon by quoting a U2 song that begins with these words: “I have climbed the highest mountains, I have run through the fields…but I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.” That song has haunted an entire generation, because it makes them wonder, “What about me? Have I found what I’m looking for?” In this week’s Gospel lesson, John 1:29-42, two of John’s disciples come looking for Jesus, and when they find him they seem to have found exactly what they were looking for. Jesus asks the question directly, “What are you looking for?” If you cannot answer this question or even if you think you have it figured out, listen as Somerville explores this question and gives his opinion on how to answer this age old question.
