12 September 2021 Sunday Morning Service
63:1 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
63:2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
63:3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
63:4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
63:5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
63:6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
63:7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
63:8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
63:9 They who seek my life will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
63:10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
63:11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God’s name will praise him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
6:35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
6:36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
6:37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
6:38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
6:40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
6:41 At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”
6:42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”
6:43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.
6:44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.
6:46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.
6:47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
6:48 I am the bread of life.
6:49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.
6:50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.
6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
6:52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
6:53 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
6:54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
6:56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
6:57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
6:58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.”
6:59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
