Morning Reads: (Matthew 11:27-30) - (Hebrews 13:17-21) - ( Luke 6:17-23) … “Find Peace in Christ”…

Good morning … Great is His faithfulness…

The Gospel According to Saint Matthew 11:27-30

The Lord said to his disciples, "All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Jesus’ yoke is submission to the kingdom of God …

Submit to God, and deny your own self will, and serve Him and not yourselves …


Psalm 115.5,3 (116.15,12)

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Verse: What shall I render to the Lord for all that he has given me?

The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Hebrews 13:17-21

Brethren, obey your leaders and submit to them; for they are keeping watch over your souls, as men who will have to give account. Let them do this joyfully, and not sadly, for that would be of no advantage to you. Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things. I urge you the more earnestly to do this in order that I may be restored to you the sooner. Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in you that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

According to the Orthodox Study Bible - notes from previous study of Hebrews 13: (1): WE EXPERIENCE the heavenly city and the heavenly most holy place we SACRIFICE our whole being, body, and soul, in the Divine Liturgy – a mystery in which our part is that of praise consistent with true doctrine – (vv. 15, 9-14) … (2): GOOD WORKS and life in community – (TO SHARE, Greek … “koinonias”) must be united with worship – (vv. 16, 1-6) … (3): PRIESTS and spiritual leaders must be respected and obeyed – (vv. 17, 7, 8), a reference to “spiritual fatherhood” in the Church … They will give an account of their ministry at the judgment … The author sees himself among the leaders and asks for prayer that he may live an exemplary life – (see, also v. 7) …

Pray for all who do God’s will and pray we stay on the righteous path in Christ…

(1): THE SUFFICIENCY OF THE BLOOD OF CHRIST is realized in His Resurrection as Christ offers His Blood in the eternal sanctuary and so inaugurates a new, EVERLASTING COVENANT – (2): THE EVERLASTING COVENANT MAKES US COMPLETE as we cooperate with God – (synergy) in all things and progress toward sainthood …

The Gospel of Luke 6:17-23

At that time, Jesus stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all. And he lifted up his eyes on His disciples, and said: "Blessed are you poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven."

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.” ’
