Readings for the Week
March 7 - 14, 2021
Readings for Sunday, March 7:

Ex 20:1-17:  God speaks to His people and gives them a code of life to follow – the Commandments.  The first
three describe how He is to be worshiped and the remaining rules outline how the people are to respect and
live with one another.

1 Cor 1:22-25; Paul admits that the preaching of Christ crucified is regarded as absurd by some.  Still, for those
who have faith, Christ is the power and wisdom of God.

Jn 2:13-25:  Jesus becomes angry when the temple, which is to be a house of prayer, is turned into a place of
business. He drives the merchants out.

Today’s Message:  The law liberates and leads us to freedom. It is to be trusted for it is a source of wisdom.
Jesus speaks of the ultimate freedom to be won for us by His being raised up. He is the sign of the power and
wisdom of God.
