Season of Apostles
Do not cover the lamp.
Reading 3, 2 Cor 5: 1-7 : We have eternal hose in heaven.
|1 ||For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. |
|2 ||Here indeed we groan, and long to put on our heavenly dwelling, |
|3 ||so that by putting it on we may not be found naked. |
|4 ||For while we are still in this tent, we sigh with anxiety; not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. |
|5 ||He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. |
|6 ||So we are always of good courage; we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, |
|7 ||for we walk by faith, not by sight. |
Gospel, Mk 4: 21-25 : Do not cover the lamp.
|21 ||And he said to them, "Is a lamp brought in to be put under a bushel, or under a bed, and not on a stand? |
|22 ||For there is nothing hid, except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret, except to come to light. |
|23 ||If any man has ears to hear, let him hear." |
|24 ||And he said to them, "Take heed what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you. |
|25 ||For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away." |
