Season of Kaitha
Season of My deeds give witness to me.
Reading 3, 1 Timo 6: 11-16 : Fight of the faithful
||But as for you, man of God, shun all this; aim at righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
||Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
||In the presence of God who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession,
||I charge you to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
||and this will be made manifest at the proper time by the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
||who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
Gospel, Jn10: 22-28 : My deeds give witness to me.
||It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem;
||it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon.
||So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."
||Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness to me;
||but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep.
||My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me;
||and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.
