Scripture Readings (ESV)

Hebrews 10 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

  • 1 Timothy 413 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.
  • Colossians 316Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
  • FOR FURTHER STUDY

John 4:23-24, Acts 2:42, Hebrews 12:28-29
