Second Sunday after Christmas

Whether you worship in a setting which refers to this day as "Second Sunday after Christmas" or as "Epiphany Sunday," it is right that we consider the day's scriptures.

The Old Testament reading is from the prophet Jeremiah 31:7-14.
The Psalm is 147:12-20.
Today's Epistle is Ephesians 1:3-14 and
The Gospel is John 1:10-18.
Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. Jer 31:10

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Eph. 1:7

Worship Him in spirit and in truth.
