Bible readings:

Psalm 122

1 It made me glad to hear them say,
“Let’s go to the house of the LORD!”
2 Jerusalem, we are standing inside your gates.

3 Jerusalem, what a strong and beautiful city you are!
4 Every tribe of the LORD obeys him
and comes to you to praise his name.
5 David’s royal throne is here where justice rules.

6 Jerusalem, we pray that you will have peace,
and that all will go well for those who love you.
7 May there be peace inside your city walls
and in your palaces.
8 Because of my friends and my relatives,
I will pray for peace.
9 And because of the house of the LORD our God,
I will work for your good.

Isaiah 2

1 This is the message that I was given about Judah and Jerusalem:

2 In the future, the mountain with the LORD’S temple
will be the highest of all.
It will reach above the hills; every nation will rush to it.
3 Many people will come and say,
“Let’s go to the mountain of the LORD God of Jacob
and worship in his temple.”

The LORD will teach us his Law from Jerusalem,
and we will obey him.
4 He will settle arguments between nations.
They will pound their swords and their spears
into rakes and shovels;
they will never make war or attack one another.
5 People of Israel, let’s live by the light of the LORD.

Romans 13

11 You know what sort of times we live in, and so you should live properly. It is time to wake up. You know that the day when we will be saved is nearer now than when we first put our faith in the Lord. 12 Night is almost over, and day will soon appear. We must stop behaving as people do in the dark and be ready to live in the light. 13 So behave properly, as people do in the day. Don’t go to wild parties or get drunk or be vulgar or indecent. Don’t quarrel or be jealous. 14 Let the Lord Jesus Christ be as near to you as the clothes you wear. Then you won’t try to satisfy your selfish desires.

Matthew 24

36 No one knows the day or hour. The angels in heaven don’t know, and the Son himself doesn’t know. Only the Father knows. 37 When the Son of Man appears, things will be just as they were when Noah lived. 38 People were eating, drinking, and getting married right up to the day that the flood came and Noah went into the big boat. 39 They didn’t know anything was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man appears.
40 Two men will be in the same field, but only one will be taken. The other will be left. 41 Two women will be together grinding grain, but only one will be taken. The other will be left. 42 So be on your guard! You don’t know when your Lord will come. 43 Homeowners never know when a thief is coming, and they are always on guard to keep one from breaking in. 44 Always be ready! You don’t know when the Son of Man will come.

Luke 17

11 On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus went along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men with leprosy came toward him. They stood at a distance 13 and shouted, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”
14 Jesus looked at them and said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.”
On their way they were healed. 15 When one of them discovered that he was healed, he came back, shouting praises to God. 16 He bowed down at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was from the country of Samaria.
17 Jesus asked, “Weren’t ten men healed? Where are the other nine? 18 Why was this foreigner the only one who came back to thank God?” 19 Then Jesus told the man, “You may get up and go. Your faith has made you well.”

1 Thessalonians 5

18 Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do.
