The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Acts 4:1-12

1 And as they spoke unto the people, the priests and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees came upon them, 2 being aggrieved that they taught the people and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 And they laid hands on them and put them in hold until the next day, for it was now eventide. 4 However, many of those who had heard the Word believed, the number of the men being about five thousand.

5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers and elders and scribes, 6 and Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and as many as were kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. 7 And when they had set them in their midst, they asked, "By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?" 8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, "Ye rulers of the people and elders of Israel, 9 if we this day are examined about the good deed done to the infirm man, and by what means he is made whole, 10 be it known unto you all and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified and whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is `the stone which was set at nought by you builders and which has become the head of the corner.' 12 Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved."

Psalm 118:1-13

1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good,
for His mercy endureth for ever!
2 Let Israel now say that His mercy endureth for ever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say
that His mercy endureth for ever.
4 Let them that fear the LORD now say
that His mercy endureth for ever.

5 I called upon the LORD in distress;
the LORD answered me,
and set me in an ample place.
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do unto me?
7 The LORD taketh my part among them that help me;
therefore shall I see what I desire
upon them that hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put
confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put
confidence in princes.

10 All the nations compassed me about,
but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11 They compassed me about, yea, they compassed
me about;
but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
12 They compassed me about like bees,
they are quenched as the fire of thorns;
for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

13 Thou hast thrust sorely at me that I might fall,
but the LORD helped me.

Words of Worship - Psalm 118:24

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

John 21:1-14

1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way showed He Himself: 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples. 3 Simon Peter said unto them, "I am going fishing." They said unto him, "We also go with thee." They went forth and entered into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus said unto them,

"Children, have ye any meat?"

And they answered Him, "No." 6 And He said unto them,

"Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find."

They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fishes. 7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said unto Peter, "It is the Lord!" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his fisher's coat unto him (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea. 8 And the other disciples came in a little boat (for they were not far from land, but, as it were, two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fishes.

9 As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon and bread. 10 Jesus said unto them,

"Bring of the fish which ye have now caught."

11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty three; and though there were so many, yet the net was not broken.

12 Jesus said unto them,

"Come and dine."

And none of the disciples dared ask Him, "Who art Thou?" knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then came and took bread and gave it to them, and fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was risen from the dead.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 14:31

He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker, 
but he that honoreth Him hath mercy on the poor.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 5:36

And He spoke also a parable unto them:

"No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; otherwise, both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
