1 st Reading: Isaiah 9:1-4 The Righteous Reign of the Coming King 1 But   there   will   be   no   gloom   for   those   who   were in   anguish.   In   the   former   time   he   brought   into contempt   the   land   of   Zebulun   and   the   land   of Naphtali,    but    in    the    latter    time    he    will    make glorious   the   way   of   the   sea,   the   land   beyond   the Jordan,   Galilee   of   the   nations. 2 The   people   who walked   in   darkness   have   seen   a   great   light;   those who   lived   in   a   land   of   deep   darkness—on   them light    has    shined. 3    You    have    multiplied    the nation,   you   have   increased   its   joy;   they   rejoice before   you   as   with   joy   at   the   harvest,   as   people exult   when   dividing   plunder. 4   For   the   yoke   of their   burden,   and   the   bar   across   their   shoulders, the   rod   of   their   oppressor,   you   have   broken   as   on the day of Midian. 2 nd Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:10-18 Divisions in the Church 10 Now   I   appeal   to   you,   brothers   and   sisters,   by the   name   of   our   Lord   Jesus   Christ,   that   all   of   you should   be   in   agreement   and   that   there   should   be no   divisions   among   you,   but   that   you   should   be united   in   the   same   mind   and   the   same   purpose. 11 For    it    has    been    reported    to    me    by    Chloe’s people   that   there   are   quarrels   among   you,   my brothers   and   sisters. 12 What   I   mean   is   that   each of   you   says,   ‘I   belong   to   Paul’,   or   ‘I   belong   to Apollos’,   or   ‘I   belong   to   Cephas’,   or   ‘I   belong   to Christ.’ 13 Has    Christ    been    divided?    Was    Paul crucified   for   you?   Or   were   you   baptized   in   the name   of   Paul? 14 I   thank   God   that   I   baptized   none of   you   except   Crispus   and   Gaius, 15 so   that   no one   can   say   that   you   were   baptized   in   my   name. 16 (I   did   baptize   also   the   household   of   Stephanas; beyond   that,   I   do   not   know   whether   I   baptized anyone   else.) 17 For   Christ   did   not   send   me   to baptize   but   to   proclaim   the   gospel,   and   not   with eloquent    wisdom,    so    that    the    cross    of    Christ might not be emptied of its power. Christ the Power and Wisdom of God 18 For   the   message   about   the   cross   is   foolishness to   those   who   are   perishing,   but   to   us   who   are being saved it is the power of God.
Gospel: Matthew 4:12-23 Jesus Begins His Ministry in Galilee 12 Now   when   Jesus   heard   that   John   had   been arrested,    he    withdrew    to    Galilee. 13 He    left Nazareth   and   made   his   home   in   Capernaum   by the    lake,    in    the    territory    of    Zebulun    and Naphtali, 14 so    that    what    had    been    spoken through   the   prophet   Isaiah   might   be   fulfilled: 15 ‘Land   of   Zebulun,   land   of   Naphtali,   on   the   road by   the   sea,   across   the   Jordan,   Galilee   of   the Gentiles— 16   the   people   who   sat   in   darkness have   seen   a   great   light,   and   for   those   who   sat   in the    region    and    shadow    of    death    light    has dawned.’ 17 From    that    time    Jesus    began    to proclaim,   ‘Repent,   for   the   kingdom   of   heaven has come near.’ Jesus Calls the First Disciples 18 As   he   walked   by   the   Sea   of   Galilee,   he   saw two   brothers,   Simon,   who   is   called   Peter,   and Andrew    his    brother,    casting    a    net    into    the lake—for   they   were   fishermen. 19 And   he   said to   them,   ‘Follow   me,   and   I   will   make   you   fish for   people.’ 20 Immediately   they   left   their   nets and   followed   him. 21 As   he   went   from   there,   he saw   two   other   brothers,   James   son   of   Zebedee and    his    brother    John,    in    the    boat    with    their father    Zebedee,    mending    their    nets,    and    he called   them. 22 Immediately   they   left   the   boat and   their   father,   and   followed   him. 23 Jesus   went throughout       Galilee,       teaching       in       their synagogues   and   proclaiming   the   good   news   of the    kingdom    and    curing    every    disease    and every sickness among the people. Psalm 27 Triumphant Song of Confidence 1   The   Lord   is   my   light   and   my   salvation;   whom shall   I   fear?   The   Lord   is   the   stronghold   of   my life;   of   whom   shall   I   be   afraid? 5   For   he   will hide   me   in   his   shelter   in   the   day   of   trouble;   he will   conceal   me   under   the   cover   of   his   tent;   he will   set   me   high   on   a   rock. 6   Now   my   head   is lifted   up   above   my   enemies   all   around   me,   and I   will   offer   in   his   tent   sacrifices   with   shouts   of joy;   I   will   sing   and   make   melody   to   the   Lord. 7 Hear,   O   Lord,   when   I   cry   aloud,   be   gracious   to me   and   answer   me! 8   ‘Come,’   my   heart   says, ‘seek   his   face!’   Your   face,   Lord,   do   I   seek. 9 Do not   hide   your   face   from   me.   Do   not   turn   your servant   away   in   anger,   you   who   have   been   my help.   Do   not   cast   me   off,   do   not   forsake   me,   O God    of    my    salvation! 10    If    my    father    and mother   forsake   me,   the   Lord   will   take   me   up. 11 Teach   me   your   way,   O   Lord,   and   lead   me   on   a level   path   because   of   my   enemies. 12   Do   not give   me   up   to   the   will   of   my   adversaries,   for false   witnesses   have   risen   against   me,   and   they are   breathing   out   violence. 13   I   believe   that   I shall   see   the   goodness   of   the   Lord   in   the   land   of the living.
