1Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
2Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
3Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Matthew 13 : 53 - 58

Chapter 13

53Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there.
54When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
55Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?
56And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?"
57So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."
58Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

And Glory be to God forever.

Chapter 2

26These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
27But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
28And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
29If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

Chapter 3

1Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

Do not love the world or the things in the world.
The world passes away, and its desires; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Amen.

Acts 5 : 1 - 6

Chapter 5

1But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession.
2And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles' feet.
3But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?
4While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."
5Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things.
6And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.

The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God.
Amen.
