The Scripture Readings

Romans 2:10-16 (Epistle)
Matthew 4:18-23 (Gospel)
Hebrews 11:33-12:2 Epistle, Saints
Matthew 4:25-5:12 Gospel, Saints

Romans 2:10-16 (Epistle)


but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.


For there is no partiality with God.


For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law


(for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;


for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves,


who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them)


in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

Matthew 4:18-23 (Gospel)


And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.


Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."


They immediately left their nets and followed Him.


Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them,


and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.


And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.
