The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

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 102:1-12

1 Hear my prayer, O LORD,
and let my cry come unto Thee.
2 Hide not Thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble;
incline Thine ear unto me. In the day when I call,
answer me speedily.
3 For my days are consumed like smoke,
and my bones are burned as a hearth.
4 My heart is smitten and withered like grass,
so that I forget to eat my bread.
5 By reason of the voice of my groaning
my bones cleave to my skin.
6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness;
I am like an owl of the desert.
7 I watch, and am as a sparrow
alone upon the housetop.
8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day,
and them that are mad against me are sworn against me.
9 For I have eaten ashes like bread
and mingled my drink with weeping,
10 because of Thine indignation and Thy wrath;
for Thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
11 My days are like a shadow that declineth,
and I am withered like grass.

12 But Thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever,
and Thy remembrance unto all generations.

Words of Worship - Psalm 119:29, 36

29 Remove from me the way of lying,
and grant me Thy law graciously.
36 Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness;

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 4:7, 10, 14, 16a

But though the righteous dies untimely, 
yet shall he be at rest. 
He pleased God and was beloved by Him, 
so that, living amongst sinners, he was translated.
For his soul pleased the Lord; 
therefore hastened He to take him away from among the wicked.
Thus the righteous that is dead shall condemn the ungodly who are living; 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 11:33-37

"Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old times, `Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths.' But I say unto you, swear not at all: neither by Heaven, for it is God's throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be `yea, yea' or `nay, nay'; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
