Genesis 18:1-15

1 And the LORD appeared unto him (Abraham) in the plains of Mamre, as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. 2 And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men stood by him. And when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground 3 and said, "My lord, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant. 4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet and rest yourselves under the tree; 5 and I will fetch a morsel of bread and comfort ye your hearts. After that ye shall pass on, for therefor are ye come to your servant." And they said, "So do, as thou hast said." 6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, "Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth." 7 And Abraham ran unto the herd and fetched a calf, tender and good, and gave it unto a young man, and he hastened to dress it. 8 And he took butter and milk and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they ate. 

9 And they said unto him, "Where is Sarah thy wife?" And he said, "Behold, in the tent." 10 And he said, "I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son." And Sarah heard it from the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age, and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, "After I have waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?" 13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying, `Shall I of a surety bear a child, who am old?' 14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." 15 Then Sarah denied, saying, "I laughed not," for she was afraid. And He said, "Nay, but thou didst laugh."

Luke 1:46-55

46 And Mary said,

"My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 For He hath regarded the low estate of His handmaiden;
for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49 For He that is mighty hath done to me great things,
and holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is on them that fear Him,
from generation to generation.
51 He hath shown strength with His arm;
He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats,
and exalted them of low degree.
53 He hath filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He hath sent empty away.
54 He hath helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy,
55 as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever."

Words of Worship - Matthew 8:17b

"He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."

Matthew 8:5-17

5 And when Jesus had entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a centurion, beseeching Him 6 and saying, "Lord, my servant lieth at home sick with the palsy and grievously tormented." 7 And Jesus said unto him,

"I will come and heal him."

8 The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldest come under my roof. But speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this man, 'Go!' and he goeth; and to another, `Come!' and he cometh; and to my servant, 'Do this!' and he doeth it." 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled and said to those who followed,

"Verily I say unto you, I have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion,

"Go thy way, and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee."

And his servant was healed in that selfsame hour.

14 And when Jesus had come into Peter's house, He saw his wife's mother lying and sick with a fever. 15 And He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose and ministered unto them. 16 When the evening had come, they brought unto Him many who were possessed with devils, and He cast out the spirits with His word and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, who said, "He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 21:21

He that followeth after righteousness and mercy 
findeth life, righteousness and honor.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:46-48

For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect.
