Ordinary Time Readings: Sunday, September 7

Reading: Genesis 17:9-14 and John 7:14-24

  1. God affirms his covenant with Abraham and to his offspring in Genesis 17. Circumcision was the sign of the covenant, a cutting away of the flesh. Consider as you read Gen.17:9-14 what the sign spiritually points to​.​
  2. Listen in on Jesus’ conversation with the people gathered to celebrate the feast days from John 7:14-24. What is Jesus asking of or offering to those who are listening? If you were among those listening, what might you be thinking or feeling as you listen?
  3. Ask God, “What truth about Jesus might I consider taking with me into my day?”
