5The next day¬†[the]¬†rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem,¬†6with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family.¬†7When they had made the prisoners stand in their midst, they inquired, ‚ÄúBy what power or by what name did you do this?‚Ä̬†8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‚ÄúRulers of the people and elders,¬†9if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed,¬†10let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead.¬†11This Jesus is¬†¬†‚Äėthe stone that was rejected by you, the builders;¬†it has become the cornerstone.‚Äô

1 John 3:16-24

16We know love by this, that¬†[Jesus Christ]¬†laid down his life for us‚ÄĒand we ought to lay down our lives for one another.¬†17How does God‚Äôs love abide in anyone who has the world‚Äôs goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?
18Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. 19And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before him 20whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have boldness before God; 22and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we obey his commandments and do what pleases him.
23And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.

First Reading: 

Acts 8:26-40

26An angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‚ÄúGet up and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.‚ÄĚ (This is a wilderness road.)¬†27So he got up and went. Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship¬†28and was returning home; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah.¬†29Then the Spirit said to Philip, ‚ÄúGo over to this chariot and join it.‚Ä̬†30So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah. He asked, ‚ÄúDo you understand what you are reading?‚Ä̬†31He replied, ‚ÄúHow can I, unless someone guides me?‚ÄĚ And he invited Philip to get in and sit beside him.¬†32Now the passage of the scripture that he was reading was this:¬†
“Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter,
and like a lamb silent before its shearer,
so he does not open his mouth.
33In his humiliation justice was denied him.
Who can describe his generation?
For his life is taken away from the earth.‚ÄĚ
34The eunuch asked Philip, ‚ÄúAbout whom, may I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?‚Ä̬†35Then Philip began to speak, and starting with this scripture, he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus.¬†36As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ‚ÄúLook, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?‚Ä̬†38He commanded the chariot to stop, and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.¬†39When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing.¬†40But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he was passing through the region, he proclaimed the good news to all the towns until he came to Caesarea.

Second Reading: 

1 John 4:7-21

7Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. 12No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world. 15God abides in those who confess that Jesus is the Son of God, and they abide in God. 16So we have known and believe the love that God has for us. 
God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.¬†17Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness on the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world.¬†18There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.¬†19We love because he first loved us.¬†20Those who say, ‚ÄúI love God,‚ÄĚ and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.¬†21The commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also.

First Reading: 

Acts 10:44-48

44While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who heard the word.¬†45The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles,¬†46for they heard them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter said,¬†47‚ÄúCan anyone withhold the water for baptizing these people who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?‚Ä̬†48So he ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they invited him to stay for several days.

Second Reading: 

1 John 5:1-6

1Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. 2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, 4for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. 5Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

6This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one that testifies, for the Spirit is the truth.

First Reading: 

Acts 1:15-17, 21-26

15In those days Peter stood up among the believers (together the crowd numbered about one hundred twenty persons) and said,¬†16‚ÄúFriends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit through David foretold concerning Judas, who became a guide for those who arrested Jesus‚ÄĒ17for he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in this ministry.‚Ä̬†21So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,¬†22beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us‚ÄĒone of these must become a witness with us to his resurrection.‚Ä̬†23So they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias.¬†24Then they prayed and said, ‚ÄúLord, you know everyone‚Äôs heart. Show us which one of these two you have chosen¬†25to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.‚Ä̬†26And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.

Second Reading: 

1 John 5:9-13

9If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son. 10Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony in their hearts. Those who do not believe in God have made him a liar by not believing in the testimony that God has given concerning his Son. 11And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

13I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
