The Daily Lectionary
SATURDAY, July 4, 2020
Psalm 145:8-14; Zechariah 4:1-7; Luke 10:21-24
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

God is full of compassion
8  The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
     slow to anger and rich in love.

9  The Lord is good to all;
     he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
     your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
     and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
     and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
     and your dominion endures through all generations.

   The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
     and faithful in all he does.
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
     and lifts up all who are bowed down.

By my Spirit says God
4:1 Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?”

I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”

4 I asked the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”

5 He answered, “Do you not know what these are?”

“No, my lord,” I replied.

6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

7 “What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’”

Jesus rejoices in the Holy Spirit
10:21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

22 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
