Matthew 12:15-21 (Saturday After)

15

But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.

16

Yet He warned them not to make Him known,

17

that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:

18

Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased! I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.

19

He will not quarrel nor cry out, Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.

20

A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory;

21

And in His name Gentiles will trust.”

Romans 8:3-9 (Martyrs)

3

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

4

that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

6

For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

8

So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
