Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father

and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the

Lord Jesus Christ. We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and

sisters, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of

everyone of you for one another is increasing. Therefore we ourselves boast of you

among the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith during all your

persecutions and the afflictions that you are enduring. To this end we always pray

for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his

power every good resolve and work of faith, so that the name of our Lord Jesus

may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the

Lord Jesus Christ.

Scripture Reading #2 : Luke 19:1-10

He entered Jericho and was passing through it. A man was there named Zacchaeus;

he was a chief tax collector and was rich. He was trying to see who Jesus was, but

on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. So he ran

ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that

way. When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus,

hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he hurried down

and was happy to welcome him. All who saw it began to grumble and said, "He

has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner." Zacchaeus stood there and said to

the Lord, "Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have

defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much." Then Jesus

said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of

Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost."
