Colossians 2:6–10; Psalm 114; Luke 11:1–4

Alive in Christ

hTherefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, irooted and jbuilt up in him and kestablished in the faith, just las you were taught, abounding min thanksgiving.

See to it that no one takes you captive by nphilosophy and oempty deceit, according to phuman tradition, according to the qelemental spirits1 of the world, and not according to Christ. For rin him the whole fullness of deity dwells sbodily, 10 and tyou have been filled in him, who is uthe head of all rule and authority.


Tremble at the Presence of the Lord

114  When pIsrael went out from Egypt,

the house of Jacob from qa people of strange language,

Judah became his rsanctuary,

Israel his dominion.

sThe sea looked and fled;

tJordan turned back.

uThe mountains skipped like rams,

the hills like lambs.

What vails you, O sea, that you flee?

O Jordan, that you turn back?

O mountains, that you skip like rams?

O hills, like lambs?

wTremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,

at the presence of the God of Jacob,

who turns xthe rock into ya pool of water,

zthe flint into a spring of water.


The Lord's Prayer

11 Now Jesus1 was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, Lord, teach us to pray, gas John taught his disciples. And he said to them, hWhen you pray, say:

iFather, jhallowed be kyour name.

lYour kingdom come.

mGive us neach day our daily bread,2

and oforgive us our sins,

for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.

And plead us not into temptation.
