Acts 14: 5-18

5And when an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to maltreat them and to stone them, 6the apostles* learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country; 7and there they continued proclaiming the good news.

Paul and Barnabas in Lystra and Derbe

8 In Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet and had never walked, for he had been crippled from birth. 9He listened to Paul as he was speaking. And Paul, looking at him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed, 10said in a loud voice, ‘Stand upright on your feet.’ And the man* sprang up and began to walk. 11When the crowds saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, ‘The gods have come down to us in human form!’ 12Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city,* brought oxen and garlands to the gates; he and the crowds wanted to offer sacrifice. 14When the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting, 15‘Friends,* why are you doing this? We are mortals just like you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16In past generations he allowed all the nations to follow their own ways; 17yet he has not left himself without a witness in doing good—giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, and filling you with food and your hearts with joy.’ 18Even with these words, they scarcely restrained the crowds from offering sacrifice to them.

John 14: 21-26

21They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.’ 22Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, ‘Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?’ 23Jesus answered him, ‘Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.

25 ‘I have said these things to you while I am still with you. 26But the Advocate,* the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.

Psalm 115

1  Not to us, Lord, not to us,
      but to your name give the glory, 
   for the sake of your loving mercy and truth.
2  Why should the nations say, 
   ‘Where is now their God?’
3  As for our God, he is in heaven; 
   he does whatever he pleases.
4  Their idols are silver and gold, 
   the work of human hands.
5  They have mouths, but cannot speak; 
   eyes have they, but cannot see;
6  They have ears, but cannot hear; 
   noses have they, but cannot smell;
7  They have hands, but cannot feel;
      feet have they, but cannot walk; 
   not a whisper do they make from their throats.
8  Those who make them shall become like them 
   and so will all who put their trust in them.
9  But you, Israel, put your trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
10  House of Aaron, trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
11  You that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
12  The Lord has been mindful of us and he will bless us; 
   may he bless the house of Israel;
      may he bless the house of Aaron;
