The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Acts 4:32-37

32 And the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and of one soul; neither said any one of them that any of the things which he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked, for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold 35 and laid them down at the apostles' feet. And distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. 36 And Joses, who was surnamed by the apostles Barnabas (which is, being interpreted, "the Son of Consolation"), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, 37 having land, sold it and brought the money and laid it at the apostles' feet.

Psalm 93

1 The LORD reigneth;
He is clothed with majesty.
The LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith He hath girded Himself.
The world also is established, that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old;
Thou art from everlasting.

3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their waves.
4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters,
yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure;
holiness becometh Thine house, O LORD, for ever.

Words of Worship - John 3:14-15

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:7b-15

7b `Ye must be born again.' 8 The wind bloweth where it will, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit."

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, "How can these things be?" 10 Jesus answered and said unto him,

"Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verily, verily I say unto thee, we speak what we know and testify what we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to Heaven, but He that came down from Heaven, even the Son of Man who is in Heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 16:6

In the congregation of the ungodly shall a fire be kindled, 
and in a rebellious nation wrath is set on fire.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:25b-26

Woe unto you that laugh now,
for ye shall mourn and weep.
Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you,
for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
