    Ephesians 3:2-12

    2assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace that was given to me for you, 3how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. 4When you read this you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6that is, how the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 7Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace which was given me by the working of his power. 8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; 10that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. 11This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him.


    Isaiah 12:2-6

    2"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation." 3With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. 4And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name; make known his deeds among the nations, proclaim that his name is exalted. 5"Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously; let this be known in all the earth. 6Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."


    Luke 12:39-48

    39But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour." 41Peter said, "Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?" 42And the Lord said, "Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45But if that servant says to himself, `My master is delayed in coming,' and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47And that servant who knew his master's will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.


    Ordinary Time.


    is 45:1, 4-6

    Thus says the LORD to his anointed, Cyrus,
    whose right hand I grasp,
    subduing nations before him,
    and making kings run in his service,
    opening doors before him
    and leaving the gates unbarred:
    For the sake of Jacob, my servant,
    of Israel, my chosen one,
    I have called you by your name,
    giving you a title, though you knew me not.
    I am the LORD and there is no other,
    there is no God besides me.
    It is I who arm you, though you know me not,
    so that toward the rising and the setting of the sun
    people may know that there is none besides me.
    I am the LORD, there is no other.


    ps 96:1, 3, 4-5, 7-8, 9-10

    R/ (7b)
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    For great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
    awesome is he, beyond all gods.
    For all the gods of the nations are things of nought,
    but the LORD made the heavens.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Give to the LORD, you families of nations,
    give to the LORD glory and praise;
    give to the LORD the glory due his name!
    Bring gifts, and enter his courts.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Worship the LORD, in holy attire;
    tremble before him, all the earth;
    say among the nations: The LORD is king,
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.


    1 thes 1:1-5b

    Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians
    in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
    grace to you and peace.
    We give thanks to God always for all of you,
    remembering you in our prayers,
    unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love
    and endurance in hope of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    before our God and Father,
    knowing, brothers and sisters loved by God,
    how you were chosen.
    For our gospel did not come to you in word alone,
    but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.


    mt 22:15-21

    The Pharisees went off
    and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech.
    They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying,
    "Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
    and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
    And you are not concerned with anyone's opinion,
    for you do not regard a person's status.
    Tell us, then, what is your opinion:
    Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?"
    Knowing their malice, Jesus said,
    "Why are you testing me, you hypocrites?
    Show me the coin that pays the census tax."
    Then they handed him the Roman coin.
    He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?"
    They replied, "Caesar's."
    At that he said to them,
    "Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
    and to God what belongs to God."
