The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 35:1-10

1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them;
and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly,
and rejoice even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it,
the excellency of Carmel and Sharon;
they shall see the glory of the LORD,
and the excellency of our God.

3 Strengthen ye the weak hands,
and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart,
"Be strong, fear not.
Behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense;
He will come and save you."
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing;
for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water;
in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

8 And a highway shall be there, and a way,
and it shall be called the Way of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for those;
the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there,
nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon;
it shall not be found there,
but the redeemed shall walk there.
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads;
they shall obtain joy and gladness,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Psalm 85

1 LORD, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land;
Thou hast released the captives of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people;
Thou hast covered all their sin.

3 Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath;
Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation,
and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever?
Wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again,
that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?
7 Show us Thy mercy, O LORD,
and grant us Thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak,
for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him,
that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good,
and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him,
and shall set us in the way of His steps.

Luke 5:17-26

17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who had come from every town of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 And behold, men brought in on a bed a man who was taken with a palsy, and they sought means to bring him in and to lay him before Him. 19 And when they could not find a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down on his couch through the tiling into the midst before Jesus.

20 And when He saw their faith, He said unto him,

"Man, thy sins are forgiven thee."

21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this who speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?" 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answering said unto them,

"What reason ye in your hearts: 23 whether it is easier to say, `Thy sins be forgiven thee,' or to say, `Rise up and walk'? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power upon earth to forgive sins,"

He said unto the one sick with the palsy,

"I say unto thee, arise and take up thy couch and go into thine house."

25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today."


Words of Wisdom - Deuteronomy 26:11

and thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger who is among you.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:13       

"Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.
