The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

2 Corinthians 5:11-21

11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God, and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. 12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have something to answer those who glory in appearance and not in heart. 13 For if we be beside ourselves, it is for God; if we be soberminded, it is for your cause.

14 For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge that if One died for all, then all were dead; 15 and that He died for all, that those who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them and rose again. 16 Therefore, henceforth know we no man according to the flesh; yea, though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now henceforth we know Him so no more.

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the Word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were beseeching you by us: we pray you on Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

Psalm 63

1 O God, Thou art my God;
early will I seek Thee.
My soul thirsteth for Thee,
my flesh longeth for Thee, in a dry and thirsty land where no water is,
2 to see Thy power and Thy glory as I have seen Thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.
4 Thus will I bless Thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in Thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness
and my mouth shall praise Thee with joyful lips,
6 when I remember Thee upon my bed,
and meditate on Thee in the night watches.
7 Because Thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after Thee;
Thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory,
but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

John 20:1-2,  11-18

1 On the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher and saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said unto them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him!"

11 But Mary stood outside at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher, 12 and saw two angels in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 And they said unto her, "Woman, why weepest thou?" She said unto them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him." 14 And when she had thus said, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said unto her,

"Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?"

She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, "Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away." 16 Jesus said unto her,


She turned herself and said unto Him, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, "Master"). 17 Jesus said unto her,

"Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say unto them, 'I ascend unto My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.'"

18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her.

Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 5:18-20

He shall put on righteousness as a breastplate 
and true judgment instead of a helmet. 
He shall take holiness for an invincible shield; 
His severe wrath shall He sharpen for a sword, and the world shall fight with Him against the unwise.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 6:16-18

"Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head and wash thy face, that thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
