Isaiah 58:9b-14 - The prophet tells the people how to live justly, so their then your light shall rise in the darkness and the Lord will guide and satisfy them. He tells them how to honour the Sabbath and promises them the heritage of their ancestor Jacob.
Jeremiah 1:4-10 - The Lord commissions the boy a prophet, saying "Now I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."

Second: Hebrews 12 18-29 
You have come to the heavenly Jerusalem, ... and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant... See that you do not refuse the one who is speaking ... let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe; for indeed our God is a consuming fire.

Gospel:   Luke 13:10-17 - Jesus heals a crippled woman on the Sabbath: a synagogue leader is indignant, but the Lord pointed out their hypocrisy, and the crowd rejoiced at the wonderful things that he was doing.


Hearing and accepting the Word of God, correctly honoring the Sabbath.  God's presence.
