Monday, November 27 / December 10, 2012: 2Tim 2:20-26, Luke 19:37-44
- passage: 2Tim 2:20-2:26
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver,
but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto
honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto
every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness,
faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure
heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they
do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be
gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those
that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance
to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves
out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
passage: Luke 19:37-19:44
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of
Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and
praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had
seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:
peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees
from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should
hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. And when he
was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou
hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which
belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the
days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench
about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee;
and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou
knewest not the time of thy visitation.
