Gracious and loving Father,

We come before you today with hearts full of gratitude for the opportunity to gather in your name. As we enter into this time of worship and study, we ask for your presence to be palpable among us. Open our minds to receive your word and our hearts to be transformed by your truth. Grant us wisdom and discernment as we seek to understand your will for our lives.

Introduction to Scripture

In the events chronicled in the Gospel according to John, chapter 12, verses 20 through 33, we witness a significant moment in Jesus’ ministry. The passage captures a scene where some Greeks approach Philip, expressing their desire to see Jesus. This simple request sets the stage for a profound revelation as Jesus begins to speak about the purpose of his coming, his impending death, and the call to discipleship. Let us delve into the depths of this scripture and glean wisdom for our own journey of faith.

NIV Bible Verse: John 12:20-33

20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival.
21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.”
22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.
23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
27 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.
28 Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine.
31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.
32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.
