Sunday, December 31 2012 / January 13, 2013: Sunday before Theophany: 2Tim 4:5-8, Mark 1:1-8
- passage: 2Tim 4:5-4:8
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an
evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. For I am now ready to be
offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good
fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth
there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord,
the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only,
but unto all them also that love his appearing.
passage: Mark 1:1-1:8
The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is
written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in
the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance
for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land
of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the
river of Jordan, confessing their sins. And John was clothed with
camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did
eat locusts and wild honey; And preached, saying, There cometh one
mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy
to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have baptized you with water:
but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
