Reading 3, 3 Jn 1:5-12 : I am among you as one who serves

 
3 John 1
5 Beloved, it is a loyal thing you do when you render any service to the brethren, especially to strangers,
6 who have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey as befits God's service.
7 For they have set out for his sake and have accepted nothing from the heathen.
8 So we ought to support such men, that we may be fellow workers in the truth.
9 I have written something to the church; but Diot'rephes, who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge my authority.
10 So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, prating against me with evil words. And not content with that, he refuses himself to welcome the brethren, and also stops those who want to welcome them and puts them out of the church.
11 Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. He who does good is of God; he who does evil has not seen God.
12 Deme'trius has testimony from every one, and from the truth itself; I testify to him too, and you know my testimony is true.


Gospel, Lk 22:24-30 : I am among you as one who serves

 

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.
