The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 7:1-9

1 And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it. 2 And it was told the house of David, saying, "Syria is confederate with Ephraim." And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

3 Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, "Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou and Shearjashub [that is, The remnant shall return], thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the Fuller's Field, 4 and say unto him: `Take heed, and be quiet. Fear not, neither be fainthearted at the two tails of these smoking firebrands -- at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria, and of the son of Remaliah. 5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah have taken evil counsel against thee, saying, 6 "Let us go up against Judah and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeel," 7 thus saith the Lord GOD: It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass. 8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people. 9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.'"

Psalm 48

1 Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God, on the mountain of His holiness.

2 Beautiful in situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion;
on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3 God is known in her palaces as a refuge.

4 For lo, the kings were assembled,
they passed by together.
5 They saw it and so they marveled;
they were troubled and hastened away.
6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain as of a woman in travail;
7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God:
God will establish it for ever.

9 We have thought of Thy lovingkindness, O God,
in the midst of Thy temple.
10 According to Thy name, O God, so is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth;
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.

11 Let Mount Zion rejoice!
Let the daughters of Judah be glad because of Thy judgments!
12 Walk about Zion and go round about her,
count the towers thereof;
13 mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces,
that ye may tell it to the generation that follows.
14 For this God is our God for ever and ever;
He will be our guide even unto death.

Words of Worship - Psalm 95:8

"Harden not your heart as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness

Matthew 11:20-24

20 Then He began to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not.

21 "Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the Day of Judgment than for you. 23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell; for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment than for thee."

Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 5:15-16

But the righteous live for evermore; 
their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the Most High.
Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom, 
and a beautiful crown from the Lord's hand; 
for with His right hand shall He cover them, 
and with His arm shall He protect them.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:21

"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.
