 Opening Prayer (Worship Assistant)

Almighty God, you sent Jesus among us to guide us into the truth;

We confess that we are led astray for false truths which appear believable, which tempt us with their empty promise and false assurance.  Forgive us and grant us the strength to turn from the easy answer and focus instead  on the truth of Jesus who taught us to love both our neighbors and our enemies.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

They tell us who we are.

They tell us that we belong to one another, for we are the people of God.

Thank you.

New Testament

John 18:33-37

Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus answered, “Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?” Pilate replied, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?” Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.” Pilate asked him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”
