The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Ezekiel 18:19-32

19 "Yet say ye, `Why? Doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father?' When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all My statutes and hath done them, he shall surely live. 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed and keep all My statutes and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live: he shall not die. 22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him. In his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. 

23 "Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die, saith the Lord GOD, and not that he should return from his ways and live? 24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. 

25 "Yet ye say, `The way of the Lord is not equal.' Hear now, O house of Israel: Is not My way equal? Are not your ways unequal? 26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity and dieth in it, for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. 27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. 28 Because he considereth and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live: he shall not die. 29 Yet saith the house of Israel, `The way of the Lord is not equal.' O house of Israel, are not My ways equal? Are not your ways unequal? 

30 "Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions, so iniquity shall not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all your transgressions whereby ye have transgressed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why will ye die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD. Therefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Psalm 130

1 Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD;
2 LORD, hear my voice! Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3 If Thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities,
O LORD, who shall stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with Thee,
that Thou mayest be feared.

5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait,
and in His word do I hope. 
6 My soul waiteth for the LORD more than they that watch for the morning--
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
7 Let Israel hope in the LORD, for with the LORD there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption.
8 And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Words of Worship - Ezekiel 18:31a

Cast away from you all your transgressions whereby ye have transgressed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. 

Matthew 5:20-26

20 For I say unto you that unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

21 "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old, `Thou shalt not kill,' and `Whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.' 22 But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, `Raca,' shall be in danger of the council; but whosoever shall say, `Thou fool,' shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, 24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way. First be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 "Agree with thine adversary quickly while thou art on the way with him, lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence until thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 4:13

Better is a poor and wise child, than an old and foolish king who will no more be admonished. For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 15:10-11, 16-17

And He called the multitude and said unto them,

"Hear and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."

And Jesus said,

"Are ye also yet without understanding? Do ye not yet understand that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the drain?
