The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Acts 20:17-27

17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called for the elders of the church. 18 And when they had come to him, he said unto them, "Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, in what manner I have been with you in all seasons, 19 serving the Lord in all humility of mind, and with many tears and temptations which befell me through the lying in wait of the Jews; 20 and how I kept back nothing that was profitable for you, but have shown you and have taught you publicly and from house to house, 21 testifying both to the Jews and also to the Greeks repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And now behold, bound by the Spirit, I go unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there, 23 save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me. 24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the Gospel of the grace of God.

25 "And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the Kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. 26 Therefore I attest to you this day that I am pure from the blood of all men, 27 for I have not shrunk from declaring unto you all the counsel of God.

Psalm 68:11-23

11 The Lord gave the word; 
great was the company of those that proclaimed it. 
12 Kings and armies did flee apace, 
and she that tarried at home divided the spoil. 
13 Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove, 
covered with silver and her feathers with yellow gold. 
14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, 
it was white as snow in Zalmon.

15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan, 
a high hill as the hill of Bashan. 
16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? 
This is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.

17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels;
the Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the holy place.
18 Thou hast ascended on high, Thou hast led captivity captive; Thou hast received gifts for men,
yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits,
even the God of our salvation.
20 He that is our God is the God of salvation;
and unto GOD the Lord belongeth the discharge from death.

21 But God shall wound the head of His enemies, 
and the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
22 The Lord said, "I will bring again from Bashan; 
I will bring My people again from the depths of the sea, 
23 that thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, 
and the tongues of thy dogs in the same." 

Words of Worship - John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever"

John 17:1-12

1 These words spoke Jesus and lifted up His eyes to Heaven and said,

"Father, the hour is come. Glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee, 2 as Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 3 And this is life eternal: that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified Thee on the earth; I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own Self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.

6 "I have manifested Thy name unto the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world. Thine they were, and Thou gavest them to Me, and they have kept Thy Word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 8 For I have given unto them the Words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and they have believed that Thou didst send Me. 9 I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for them whom Thou hast given Me, for they are Thine. 10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep through Thine own name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name. Those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 17:1

Better is a dry morsel and quietness therewith 
than a house full of feasting with strife.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 12:22-26

And He said unto His disciples, "Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap, they neither have storehouse nor barn, and God feedeth them. How much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you by taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
