Formed for Mission

For 19 January 2020, Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, based on Isaiah 49:3, 5–6

And he said to me, “You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”

   And now the LORD says,
who formed me in the womb to be his servant,
to bring Jacob back to him,
and that Israel might be gathered to him,
for I am honored in the sight of the LORD,
and my God has become my strength—
he says,
“It is too light a thing that you should be my servant
to raise up the tribes of Jacob
and to restore the survivors of Israel;
I will give you as a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
