John 1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
MY NOTE- The proclamation of John ‘Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world’- In Latin the term is Agnus Dei- as a boy we sung this hymn in Catholic church ‘Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world- have mercy on us’.
[Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.- this is the full phrase in the Latin – taken from John’s declaration- where the Christian song/chant comes from]
R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
Sacrifice or offering you wished not,
but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Holocausts or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, “Behold I come.”
R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
to do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!”
Ps. 40


This day I spoke on the verses from the Mass and Church Unlimited- and will try and make a theme out of them.

From the story of Samuel [I’ll add my past teaching below on the first 3 chapters] we see Samuel hearing a voice-
1Samuel 3:4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
1Samuel 3:5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.
He thinks it’s Eli the priest- but finds out it is really God beginning to speak to him at this early age-
1Samuel 3:7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.
1Samuel 3:8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.
1Samuel 3:10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

Samuel will grow into a great prophet of the Lord- and this is a gift [hearing God] that he is not yet accustomed to.

Eli- though a non spiritual man at this time in his life- does give good advice to Samuel-
1Samuel 3:9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
And Samuel hears the voice of God- and tells Eli what God told him-
1Samuel 3:16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.
1Samuel 3:17 And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.
1Samuel 3:18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.

Yes- the calling of the prophet is to speak the word of God- even if it feels uncomfortable.
To the credit of Eli- he receives this word from God.

Then the next reading from the Mass was from Corinthians- [Some sites- see the rest here ]
1Corinthians 6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the
