If we want to be with Jesus,
we must forget ourselves, carry our cross and follow.
If we want to save our life we will lose it
but if we lose our life for Christ and for the gospel,
we will save it.
With us it is impossible, but not for God.
Only God can save us.
Gospel Reading - The family of Jesus
46,47 As Jesus was speaking in a crowded house (Implied in Mark 3:32.) his mother and brothers were outside, wanting to talk to him. When someone told him they were there, 48 he remarked, "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" 49 He pointed to his disciples. "Look!" he said, "these are my mother and brothers." 50 Then he added, "Anyone who obeys my Father in heaven is my brother, sister and mother!". . . . .Matthew 12:46-50
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
