Bible Reading: Psalm 26:1-8

Read by George Barnes

00:00 / 01:10

(Good News Version)

Declare me innocent, O Lord,
    because I do what is right
    and trust you completely.
Examine me and test me, Lord;
    judge my desires and thoughts.
Your constant love is my guide;
    your faithfulness always leads me.

I do not keep company with worthless people;
    I have nothing to do with hypocrites.
I hate the company of the evil
    and avoid the wicked.


Lord, I wash my hands to show that I am innocent
    and march in worship around your altar.
I sing a hymn of thanksgiving
    and tell of all your wonderful deeds.


I love the house where you live, O Lord,
    the place where your glory dwells.


00:00 / 02:52


00:00 / 03:01

Bible Reading: Romans 12:9-21

Read by George Barnes

00:00 / 02:16

(Good News Version)

Love must be completely sincere. Hate what is evil, hold on to what is good. Love one another warmly as Christians, and be eager to show respect for one another. Work hard and do not be lazy. Serve the Lord with a heart full of devotion. Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times. Share your belongings with your needy fellow Christians, and open your homes to strangers.

Ask God to bless those who persecute you—yes, ask him to bless, not to curse. Be happy with those who are happy, weep with those who weep. Have the same concern for everyone. Do not be proud, but accept humble duties. Do not think of yourselves as wise.

If someone has done you wrong, do not repay him with a wrong. Try to do what everyone considers to be good. Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Never take revenge, my friends, but instead let God's anger do it. For the scripture says, “I will take revenge, I will pay back, says the Lord.” Instead, as the scripture says: “If your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them a drink; for by doing this you will make them burn with shame.” Do not let evil defeat you; instead, conquer evil with good.


A new commandment, I give unto you
That you love one another, as I have loved you,
By this shall all men know you are my disciples
If you have love, one to another.
