The Psalms (Psalm 83)

Psalm 83[1] A song. A psalm of Asaph. 1 O God, do not remain silent;     do not turn a deaf ear,     do not stand aloof, O God. 2 See how your enemies growl,     how your foes rear their heads. 3 With cunning they conspire against your people;     they plot against those you cherish. 4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,     so that Israel’s name…

Good Friday 2024 (Mark 15:25-41)

25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him. 26 The written notice of the charge against him read: The King of the Jews. 27 They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left. [28] [1] 29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in…

Romans 6:1-14

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ 6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means!

The Living Stone and a Chosen People 4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house[1] to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion,     a chosen and precious cornerstone,…

1 Peter (1 Peter 1:22-2:3)

22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.[1] 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For, “All people are like grass,     and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the…

1 Peter (1 Peter 1:13-21)

Be Holy 13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because…

1 Peter (1 Peter 1:10-12)

10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, 11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when…

1 Peter (1 Peter 1:3-5)

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to…

Incarnation Part 3 (Hebrews 5:7-10)

7 During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him 10 and was designated by God to…
