The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

2 Peter 1:1-11

1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, according as 3 His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue. 4 Thereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And besides this, using all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, 6 and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience godliness, 7 and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you and abound, they make you that ye shall be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Therefore brethren, give diligence all the more to make your calling and election sure, for if ye do these things ye shall never fall. 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Psalm 91

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
my God, in Him will I trust."
3 Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler
and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust;
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flieth by day,
6 nor of the pestilence that walketh in darkness,
nor of the destruction that layeth waste at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand,
but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the LORD, who is my refuge,
even the Most High, thy habitation,
10 there shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For He shall give His angels charge over thee
to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder;
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample underfoot.

14 "Because he hath set his love upon Me,
therefore will I deliver him;
I will set him on high,
because he hath known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him,
and show him My salvation."

Words of Worship - Revelation 1:5

and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first-begotten of the dead, and the prince over the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

Mark 12:1-12

1 And He began to speak unto them by parables:

"A certain man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a place for the wine vat, and built a watchtower; and he leased it out to husbandmen and went into a far country. 2 And at the harvest season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. 3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. 4 And again he sent unto them another servant, and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled. 5 And again he sent another, and him they killed, and many others, beating some and killing some. 6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, `They will reverence my son.' 7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, `This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.' 8 And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 9 What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others. 10 And have ye not read this Scripture?

'The stone which the builders rejected
has become the head of the corner;
11 this was the Lord's doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.'"

12 And they sought to lay hold on Him, but they feared the people, for they knew that He had spoken the parable against them. And they left Him, and went their way.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 23:7

Hear, O ye children, the discipline of the mouth: 
he that keepeth it shall never be taken by his lips.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:6-9

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness,
for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called the children of God.
