Collect: God, our Judge and Saviour, teach us to be open to your
truth and to trust in your love, that we may live each day with
confidence in the salvation which is given through Jesus Christ our
A reading from Isaiah 45: 1 – 7
“This is what the LORD says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right
hand I take hold of, to subdue nations before him and to strip kings
of their armour, to open doors before him so that gates will not be
shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains, I will break
down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron I will give you
hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may
know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by
name. For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I
summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honour, though
you do not acknowledge me. I am the LORD, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you
have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the
place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am
the LORD, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things
A reading from 1 Thessalonians 1: 1 – 10
Paul, Silas and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God
the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace and peace to you. We
always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our
prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work
produced by faith, your labour prompted by love, and your
endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know,
brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because
our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power,
with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived
among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the
Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering
with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. And so you became a model to
all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. The Lord’s message rang
out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith in God
has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say
anything about it, for they themselves report what kind of reception
you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the
living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he
raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming
A reading from Matthew 22: 15 – 22
Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.
They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,”
they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you
teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t
swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are.
Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax
to Caesar or not?”But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You
hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? Show me the coin used
for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, and he asked
them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”“Caesar’s,” they
replied.Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is
Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”When they heard this, they were
amazed. So they left him and went away.
