The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Acts 11:19-30

19 Now those who had been scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose on account of Stephen, traveled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, preaching the Word to none but unto the Jews only. 20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke unto the Greeks, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21 And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned unto the Lord.

22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem, and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. 23 And when he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad and exhorted them all that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord, 24 for he was a good man and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith. And many people were added unto the Lord.

25 Then Barnabas departed to Tarsus to seek out Saul; 26 and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass that for a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught many people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. 28 And one of them named Agabus stood up, and signified by the Spirit that there would be a great dearth throughout all the world, which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. 29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren who dwelt in Judea. 30 This also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

Acts 13:1-3

1 Now there were in the church at Antioch certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, and Simeon who was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." 3 And when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

Psalm 98

1 O sing unto the LORD a new song, for He hath done marvelous things!
His right hand and His holy arm hath gotten Him the victory.
2 The LORD hath made known His salvation;
His righteousness hath He openly shown in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth!
Make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise!
5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp,
with the harp and the voice of a psalm.
6 With trumpets and sound of cornet
make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King!

7 Let the sea roar and the fullness thereof,
the world and they that dwell therein.
8 Let the floods clap their hands,
let the hills be joyful together 9 before the LORD.
For He cometh to judge the earth;
with righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.

Words of Worship - Matthew 5:12a

Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven;

Matthew 5:1-12

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up onto a mountain; and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him. 2 And He opened His mouth and taught them, saying,

3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn,
for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness,
for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
11 Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you,
and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.
12 Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven;
for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 12:1-7

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, 
nor the years draw nigh when thou shalt say, "I have no pleasure in them"; 
while neither the sun nor the light, nor the moon nor the stars be darkened, 
nor the clouds return after the rain;
in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, 
and the strong men shall bow themselves, 
and the grinders cease because they are few, 
and the eyes that look out of the windows be darkened; 
and the doors shall be shut in the streets, 
when the sound of the grinding is low; 
and he shall rise up at the voice of a bird, 
and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 
also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, 
and fears shall be in the way; 
and the almond tree shall flourish, 
and the grasshopper shall be a burden, 
and desire shall fail; 
because man goeth to his long home, 
and the mourners go about the streets; 
or ever the silver cord be loosed, 
or the golden bowl be broken, 
or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, 
or the wheel broken at the cistern-- 
then shall the dust return to the earth as it was, 
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:20

For I say unto you that unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
