The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Jeremiah 18:18-20

18 Then said they, "Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words." 

19 Give heed to me, O LORD, 
and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me. 
20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? For they have dug a pit for my soul. 
Remember that I stood before Thee to speak good for them, and to turn away Thy wrath from them.

Psalm 31:1-16

1 In Thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed;
deliver me in Thy righteousness.
2 Bow down Thine ear to me, deliver me speedily;
be Thou my strong rock, a house of defense to save me.
3 For Thou art my rock and my fortress;
therefore for the sake of Thy name, lead me and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me,
for Thou art my strength.
5 Into Thine hand I commit my spirit;
Thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

6 I have hated them that have regard for lying vanities;
but I trust in the LORD.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy,
for Thou hast considered my trouble. Thou hast known my soul in adversities,
8 And hast not delivered me into the hands of the enemy;
Thou hast set my feet in a large room.

9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble;
mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. 10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing;
my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11 I am a reproach among all mine enemies,
but especially among my neighbors,
and a fear to mine acquaintances;
they that see me in the streets flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind;
I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many;
fear was on every side;
while they took counsel together against me,
they schemed to take away my life.

14 But I have trusted in Thee, O LORD;
I said, "Thou art my God."
15 My times are in Thy hand;
deliver me from the hand of mine enemies and from them that persecute me.
16 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant;
save me for Thy mercies' sake.

Words of Worship - John 8:12b

"I am the Light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Matthew 20:17-28

17 And Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart on the way and said unto them,

18 "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, 19 and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify Him. And the third day, He shall rise again."

20 Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshiping Him and desiring a certain thing of Him. 21 And He said unto her,

"What wilt thou?"

She said unto Him, "Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on Thy right hand and the other on the left in Thy Kingdom." 22 But Jesus answered and said,

"Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?"

They said unto Him, "We are able." 23 And He said unto them,

"Ye shall drink indeed of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared by My Father."

24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Jesus called them unto Him and said,

"Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you; but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 27 and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many."


Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 12:28 

In the way of righteousness is life, 
and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:25b-26

Woe unto you that laugh now,
for ye shall mourn and weep.
Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you,
for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
