Readings for the Week
December 8 - 15, 2019

Reading for Sunday, December 8:

Is 2:1-5:  In a vision the prophet sees the promise of salvation being fulfilled.   The Word of the Lord is personified; He shall Judge.  Let us walk in the light of the Lord.

Rom 13:11-14:  The apostle urges us to come out of the darkness of sin into the protective light – Jesus is the light.

Mt 24:37-44:  We must always be prepared for the coming of Christ for no one knows the day or hour.  Even though we are prepared, His coming will be unexpected; we must not be caught off guard.
