The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 7:10-14

10 Moreover the LORD spoke again unto Ahaz, saying, 11 "Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above." 12 But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD." 13 And Isaiah said, "Hear ye now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

Isaiah 8:10

10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; 
speak the word, and it shall not stand, for God is with us.

Psalm 40:1-11

1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
and He inclined unto me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings.
3 And He hath put a new song in my mouth; even praise unto our God;
many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust,
and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O LORD my God, are Thy wonderful works which Thou hast done;
and Thy thoughts which are directed toward us, they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee.
If I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened;
burnt offering and sin offering hast Thou not required.

7 Then said I, "Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me:
8 I delight to do Thy will, O my God; yea, Thy law is within my heart."
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation;
lo, I have not restrained my lips, O LORD, Thou knowest.
10 I have not hid Thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation;
I have not concealed Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth from the great congregation.

11 Withhold not Thou Thy tender mercies from me, O LORD;
let Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth continually preserve me.

Hebrews 10:4-10

4 for it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 5 Therefore when He cometh into the world, He saith,

"Sacrifice and offering Thou wouldest not have,
but a body hast Thou prepared for Me.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin
Thou hast had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, 'Lo, I come (in the volume of the Book it is written of Me)
to do Thy will, O God.'"

8 Above when He said, "Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings, and offering for sin Thou wouldest not have, neither hadst pleasure therein" (which are offered in accordance with the law), 9 then said He, "Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God," He taketh away the first, that He may establish the second. 10 By this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Words of Worship - John 1:14a

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory,

Luke 1:26-38

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her and said, "Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women." 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying and cast about in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said unto her, "Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favor with God. 31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His name JESUS. 32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David, 33 and He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end."

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?" 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee. Therefore also that Holy Being who shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. 36 And behold, thy cousin Elizabeth: she hath also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing shall be impossible." 38 And Mary said, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word." And the angel departed from her.


Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 13:3

He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life, 
but he that openeth wide his lips shall meet destruction.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Mark 4:26-29

"So is the Kingdom of God as if a man should cast seed into the ground, and should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring up and grow, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself: first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come."
