Reading 3, Gal 4:12-20 : I am in the pain of childbirth until Christ is formed in you

Galatians 4
12 Brethren, I beseech you, become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You did me no wrong;
13 you know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first;
14 and though my condition was a trial to you, you did not scorn or despise me, but received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus.
15 What has become of the satisfaction you felt? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.
16 Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?
17 They make much of you, but for no good purpose; they want to shut you out, that you may make much of them.
18 For a good purpose it is always good to be made much of, and not only when I am present with you.
19 My little children, with whom I am again in travail until Christ be formed in you!
20 I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.

Gospel, Lk 10:17-20 : Rejoice that your names are written in heaven

Luke 10
17 The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!"
18 And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you.
20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
