First Reading: 1 Samuel 3:3b-10, 19
3: the lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down within the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was.
4: Then the LORD called, "Samuel! Samuel!" and he said, "Here I am!"
5: and ran to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call; lie down again." So he went and lay down.
6: And the LORD called again, "Samuel!" And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call, my son; lie down again."
7: Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, and the word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him.
8: And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." Then Eli perceived that the LORD was calling the boy.
9: Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and if he calls you, you shall say, `Speak, LORD, for thy servant hears.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10: And the LORD came and stood forth, calling as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel said, "Speak, for thy servant hears."
19: And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.
Psalm: Psalms 40:2, 4, 7-8, 8-9, 10
2 I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
4 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
7 Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.
8 Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
9 I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."
10 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD.
Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20
13: "Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food" -- and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
14: And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.
15: Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I therefore take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
17: But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
18: Shun immorality. Every other sin which a man commits is outside the body; but the immoral man sins against his own body.
19: Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own;
20: you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Gospel: John 1:35-42
35: The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples;
36: and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!"
37: The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
38: Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
39: He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying; and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.
40: One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41: He first found his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ).
42: He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas" (which means Peter).
