Psalm 130

1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
2O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
3 If you were to keep watch over sins, O Lord, | who could stand?
4 Yet with you is forgiveness, in order that you may be feared.
5 I wait for you, O Lord; my soul waits; in your word is my hope.
6My soul waits for the Lord more than those who keep watch for the morning, more than those who keep watch | for the morning.
7O Israel, wait for the Lord, for with the Lord there is steadfast love; with the Lord there is plenteous redemption.
8 For the Lord shall redeem Israel from all their sins.

2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1

13Just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture—“I believed, and so I spoke”—we also believe, and so we speak,
14because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence.
15Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.
16So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.
17For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure,
18because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.
...
5:1For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

The Gospel according to Mark 3:20-35

[Jesus went home;] 20and the crowd came together again, so that [Jesus and the disciples] could not even eat.
21When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.”
22And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons.”
23And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan?
24If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
26And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come.
27But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.
28“Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter;
29but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”—
30for they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”
31Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him.
32A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.”
33And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?”
34And looking at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers!
35Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”
