    Acts 2:44-47

    44And all who believed were together and had all things in common;45and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. 46And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, 47praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.


    Colossians 3:12-17

    12Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, 13forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other;as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.


    Psalms 131:1-3

    1O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high;I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast;like a child that is quieted is my soul. 3O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.


    Luke 12:22-31

    22And he said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. 23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life? 26If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? 27Consider the lilies, how they grow;they neither toil nor spin;yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith! 29And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind. 30For all the nations of the world seek these things;and your Father knows that you need them. 31Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 25:13-21

    King Agrippa and Bernice arrived in Caesarea
    on a visit to Festus.
    Since they spent several days there,
    Festus referred Paul’s case to the king, saying,
    “There is a man here left in custody by Felix.
    When I was in Jerusalem the chief priests and the elders of the Jews
    brought charges against him and demanded his condemnation.
    I answered them that it was not Roman practice
    to hand over an accused person before he has faced his accusers
    and had the opportunity to defend himself against their charge.
    So when they came together here, I made no delay;
    the next day I took my seat on the tribunal
    and ordered the man to be brought in.
    His accusers stood around him,
    but did not charge him with any of the crimes I suspected.
    Instead they had some issues with him about their own religion
    and about a certain Jesus who had died
    but who Paul claimed was alive.
    Since I was at a loss how to investigate this controversy,
    I asked if he were willing to go to Jerusalem
    and there stand trial on these charges.
    And when Paul appealed that he be held in custody
    for the Emperor’s decision,
    I ordered him held until I could send him to Caesar.”


    Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20AB

    R. (19a) The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    and all my being, bless his holy name.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits.
    R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    For as the heavens are high above the earth,
    so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
    As far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he put our transgressions from us.
    R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.
    Bless the LORD, all you his angels,
    you mighty in strength, who do his bidding.
    R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.

    John 21:15-19

    After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them,
    he said to Simon Peter,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
    Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
    Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
    He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
    Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
    He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
    He said to him the third time,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
    Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
    “Do you love me?” and he said to him,
    “Lord, you know everything;you know that I love you.”
    Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
    Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
    you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
    but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
    and someone else will dress you
    and lead you where you do not want to go.”
    He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
    And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.”
