  5. 5. Isaiah 55:1-9 The Compassion of the LORD 55 ―Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. 3 Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love forDavid. 4 Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. 5 Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the LORD your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you. 6 ―Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; 7 let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
  6. 6. Ephesians 5:15-21 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another inpsalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
  7. 7. Matthew 22:1-14 The Parable of the Wedding Feast 22 And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying, 2 ―The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son, 3 andsent his servants[a] to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not come. 4 Again he sent other servants, saying, ‗Tell those who are invited, ―See, I have prepared mydinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding murderers and burned their city. 8 Then he said to his servants, ‗The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 9 Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.‘ 10 And those servants went out into the roads andgathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests. 11 ―But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment. 12 And he said to him, ‗Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?‘
  8. 8. Matthew 21:33-44 PsThe Parable of the Tenants 33 ―Hear another parable. There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a winepress in it and built a tower and leased it to tenants, and went into another country. 34 When the season for fruit drew near, he sent his servants[a]to the tenants to get his fruit. 35 And the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first. And they did the same to them. 37 Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‗They will respect my son.‘ 38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‗This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.‘ 39 And they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 40 When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?‖ 41 They said to him,―He will put those wretches to a miserable death and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.‖ 42 Jesus said to them, ―Have you never read in the Scriptures: ―‗The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;[b] this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes‘? 43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits.44 And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.‖[c]
  9. 9. Psalm 27:1-9 The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation Of David. 27 The LORD is my light and mysalvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold[a] of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. 3 Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet[b] I will be confident. 4 One thing have I asked of theLORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of theLORD and to inquire[c] in his temple. 5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. 6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the LORD. 7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! 8 You have said, ―Seek[d] my face.‖ My heart says to you, ―Your face, LORD, do I seek.‖[e] 9 Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation!
  10. 10. THE TWENTIETH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY Isaiah 55:1–9 Ephesians 5:15–21 Matthew 22:1–14 Jesus Invites Us to His Wedding Feast to Receive Abundant Righteousness The Holy Spirit sounds forth the Gospel call: “See, I have prepared my dinner ... Come to the wedding feast” (Matt. 22:1–14). But many reject this invitation in favor of worldly pursuits. And so the call goes out to others, both the good and the bad. For the wedding invitation is not based on the qualifications of those invited but on the basis of the merits and work of Christ. The feast is free: “He who has no money, come, buy and eat ... delight yourselves in rich food.” (Is. 55:1–9). Those rejecting the Spirit‘s work shall experience God‘s wrath and judgment. Those who are not clothed in Christ‘s righteousness shall be cast into outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Let us therefore seek the Lord while He may be found, for He will have mercy upon us. Let us redeem the time, being filled with the Spirit, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph 5:15–21).

And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and asked him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. 48 So Jesus said to him, ―Unless you[a] see signs and wonders you will not believe.‖49 The official said to him, ―Sir, come down before my child dies.‖ 50 Jesus said to him, ―Go; your son will live.‖ The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way. 51 As he was going down, his servants[b] met him and told him that his son was recovering. Psalm 8 How Majestic Is Your Name To the choirmaster: according to TheGittith.[a] A Psalm of David. 8 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that youcare for him? 5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings[b] and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, 7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
