The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons 

Acts 5:17-26

17 Then the high priest rose up and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees); and they were filled with indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. 19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth and said, 20 "Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this Life." 21 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning and taught.

But the high priest came, and those who were with him, and called the council together with all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought. 22 But when the officers came and found them not in the prison, they returned and reported, saying, 23 "The prison truly found we shut with all safety and the keepers standing outside before the doors; but when we had opened them, we found no man within." 24 Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they were in doubt about them as to where this would grow. 25 Then there came one and told them, saying, "Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people." 26 Then the captain went with his officers and brought them without violence, for they feared the people, lest they should be stoned.

Psalm 34:1-10

1 I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD;
the humble shall hear thereof and be glad.
3 O magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto Him and were lightened,
and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him,
and delivereth them.

8 O taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!
9 O fear the LORD, ye His saints!
For them that fear Him suffer no want.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger,
but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

Words of Worship - John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:13-21

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.

16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 "He that believeth in Him is not condemned; but He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation: that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 7:13

Consider the work of God; for who can make straight that which He hath made crooked?

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:27-29

"But I say unto you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
