The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Acts 28:16-31

16 And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard, but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier who kept him.

17 And it came to pass that after three days Paul called the chief Jews together; and when they had come together, he said unto them, "Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans, 18 who, when they had examined me, would have let me go because there was no cause deserving of death in me. 19 But when the Jews spoke against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar, not that I had anything to accuse my nation of. 20 For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you and to speak with you, because it is for the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain." 21 And they said unto him, "We neither received letters from Judea concerning thee, nor did any of the brethren who came show or speak any harm of thee. 22 But we desire to hear from thee what thou thinkest; for concerning this sect, we know that everywhere it is spoken against.

23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging, to whom he expounded and testified the Kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the Law of Moses and out of the Prophets, from morning until evening. 24 And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not. 25 And when they were unable to agree among themselves, they departed after Paul had spoken one word: "Well spoke the Holy Ghost through Isaiah the prophet unto our fathers, 26 saying,

'Go unto this people and say, "Hearing, ye shall hear and shall not understand;
and seeing, ye shall see and not perceive.
27 For the heart of this people has waxed gross,
and their ears are dull of hearing,
and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and should be converted, and I should heal them."'

28 "Be it known therefore unto you that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it." 29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed and had great reasoning among themselves.

30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house and received all who came in unto him, 31 preaching the Kingdom of God and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Psalm 11

1 In the LORD I put my trust;
how say ye to my soul, "Flee as a bird to your mountain,
2 for lo, the wicked bend their bow and make ready their arrow upon the string,
that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart;
3 if the foundations be destroyed,
what can the righteous do?"
4 The LORD is in His holy temple! The LORD'S throne is in heaven!
His eyes behold; His eyelids test the children of men!
5 The LORD trieth the righteous;
but the wicked and him that loveth violence, His soul hateth.
6 Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest:
this shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness;
His countenance doth behold the upright.

Words of Worship - John 16:7b, 13b

 I will send Him unto you.
He will guide you into all truth;

John 21:20-25

20 Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at supper, and said, "Lord, who is he that betrayeth Thee?" 21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "Lord, and what shall this man do?" 22 Jesus said unto him,

 "If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou Me."

23 Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. Yet Jesus had not said unto him, "He shall not die," but, "If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?" 24 This is the disciple who testifieth of these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.

25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 21:2

Flee from sin as from the face of a serpent, 
for if thou comest too near it, it will bite thee; 
the teeth thereof are as the teeth of a lion, 
slaying the souls of men.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 12:35-38

"Let your loins be girded about and your lights burning; and ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord when he will return from the wedding, that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the lord, when he cometh, shall find watching. Verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch and find them so, blessed are those servants.
