The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Genesis 2:4-9

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 and before every plant of the field was in the earth, and before every herb of the field grew; for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 3:1-7

1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, `Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?" 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, `Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.'" 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, "Ye shall not surely die; 5 for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and ate, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he ate. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves things to gird about.

Psalm 51:1-17

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness;
according unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned and done this evil in Thy sight,
that Thou mightest be justified when Thou speakest, and be clear when Thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shaped in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, Thou desirest truth in my inward parts;
in the hidden part Thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness,
that the bones which Thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Thy face from my sins,
and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from Thy presence,
and take not Thy holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation,
and uphold me with Thy free Spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways,
and sinners shall be converted unto Thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, Thou God of my salvation,
and my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open Thou my lips,
and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.
16 For Thou desirest not sacrifice, else would I give it;
Thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

Romans 5:12-19

12 Therefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so death passed onto all men, for all have sinned. 13 For until the law, sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the similitude of Adam's transgression, he being the figure of Him that was to come. 15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one Man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one who sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is for many offenses unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore as by the offense of one, judgment to condemnation came upon all men, even so by the righteousness of One, the free gift unto justification of life came upon all men. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous. 

Words of Worship - Matthew 4:4b

'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.'"

Matthew 4:1-11

1 Then was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He afterward hungered. 3 And when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If Thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread." 4 But He answered and said,

"It is written: 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.'"

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and 6 said unto Him, "If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down. For it is written: `He shall give His angels charge concerning thee; and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.'" 7 Jesus said unto him,

"It is written again: `Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.'"

8 Again, the devil took Him up onto an exceeding high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, 9 and said unto Him, "All these things will I give Thee if Thou wilt fall down and worship me." 10 Then said Jesus unto him,

"Get thee hence, Satan! For it is written: `Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.'"

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered unto Him.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 5:12

The sleep of the laboring man is sweet whether he eat little or much, 
but the abundance of the rich will not permit him to sleep.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Mark 10:23-27

And Jesus looked round about and said unto His disciples, 

"How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God!" 

And the disciples were astonished at His words, but Jesus answered again and said unto them, 

"Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God." 

And they were astonished beyond measure, saying among themselves, "Who then can be saved?" And Jesus, looking upon them, said, 

"With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible."
