Suggested Common Psalms

Psalm (24) 25: To You, O Lord, I Lift Up My Soul
Psalm (121) 122: I Rejoiced When I Heard Them Say

Hebrews 10:11-14, 18. Christ has made the perfect “sin offering.” Where there is complete forgiveness, there is no need for any additional offering.

Mark 13:24-32. Many people in Jesus’ time expected an imminent ending of time, or at least a dramatic ending of the “age” in which they were living. Jesus accepts that expectation, but he calls on his disciples to remain faithful to his teaching, which “shall not pass away.”
