A Joyful Assembly

We have come before God’s holy mountain:
the heavenly Jerusalem,
the city of the living God;
we have come before myriads of angels
in festal gathering:
before the assembly
of the first-born citizens of heaven;
we have come before God the judge of all:
before the spirits of the righteous made perfect,
and Jesus the mediator of a new covenant.
We are receiving a kingdom
that cannot be shaken:
let us therefore give thanks to God,
thus offering acceptable worship
with reverence and awe:
for our God is a consuming fire.

New Testament Reading - Put on Christ

thumb

10 Love does no wrong to anyone. That's why it fully satisfies all of God's requirements. It is the only law you need.

11Another reason for right living is this: you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of the Lorda is nearer now than when we first believed. 12,13 The night is far gone, the day of his return will soon be here. So quit the evil deeds of darkness and put on the armour of right living, as we who live in the daylight should! Be decent and true in everything you do so that all can approve your behaviour. Don't spend your time in wild parties and getting drunk or in adultery and lust, or fighting, or jealousy, 14 But ask the Lord Jesus Christ to help you live as you should and don't make plans to enjoy evil.

. . . . .Romans 13:10-14
  1. Literally, "our salvation."
