January 1 (Daily Scripture)

Third Day of the Fast of Nativity

Hebrews 13:10-16
Luke 21:34-38

Hebrews 13:10-16
[10] We have an altar from which those who serve the tent have no right to eat.
[11] For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest as a sacrifice for sin are burned outside the camp.
[12] So Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood.
[13] Therefore let us go forth to him outside the camp and bear the abuse he endured.
[14] For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city which is to come.
[15] Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
[16] Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Luke 21:34-38
[34] “But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare;
[35] for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth.
[36] But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man.”
[37] And every day he was teaching in the temple, but at night he went out and lodged on the mount called Olivet.
[38] And early in the morning all the people came to him in the temple to hear him.
