The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 26:1-9

1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: "We have a strong city;
salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open ye the gates,
that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee,
because he trusteth in Thee.
4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever,
for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

5 For He bringeth down them that dwell on high;
the lofty city, He layeth it low;
He layeth it low, even to the ground;
He bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down,
even the feet of the poor and the steps of the needy."

7 The way of the just is uprightness;
Thou, Most Upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of Thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for Thee;
the desire of our soul is to Thy name and to the remembrance of Thee.
9 With my soul have I desired Thee in the night;
yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early;
for when Thy judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Psalm 118

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.
14 The LORD is my strength and song,
and has become my salvation.

15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles
of the righteous;
the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted;
the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live
and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD hath chastened me sorely,
but He hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD-
20 this gate of the LORD, into which the righteous
shall enter.
21 I will praise Thee,
for Thou hast heard me and art become my salvation.

22 The stone which the builders refused
has become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the LORD'S doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save now, I beseech Thee, O LORD;
O LORD, I beseech Thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD!
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
27 God is the LORD, who hath shown us light;
bind the sacrifice with cords,
even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise Thee;
Thou art my God, I will exalt Thee.

29 O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good;
for His mercy endureth for ever!

Words of Worship - Isaiah 55:6

Seek ye the LORD while He may be found,
call ye upon Him while He is near.

Matthew 7:21-29

21 "Not every one that saith unto Me, `Lord, Lord,' shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he that doeth the will of My Father who is in Heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that Day, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name, and in Thy name have cast out devils, and in Thy name done many wonderful works?' 23 And then will I profess unto them, `I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.'

24 "Therefore, whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock. 25 And the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of Mine and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand; 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it."

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine; 29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 1:13

Whoso feareth the Lord, it shall go well with him at the last,
and he shall find favor in the day of his death.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:3-5

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn,
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.
