Reading for the Day
Revelation 22:1-7

  • 1 Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
  • 2 through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
  • 3 There shall no more be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall worship him;
  • 4 they shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads.
  • 5 And night shall be no more; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they shall reign for ever and ever.
  • 6 And he said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.
  • 7 And behold, I am coming soon." Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.

  • 3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
  • 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.R
  • 5 The sea is his, for he made it; for his hands formed the dry land.
  • 6 O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! R
  • 7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!


Gospel for the Day
Luke 21:34-36

  • 34 "But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare;
  • 35 for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth.
  • 36 But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man."

When the disciples went with Jesus, they entered into a path of healing, forgiveness and liberation for others. Such lives will lead us to what it is, whom it is, we are seeking.
