Readers’ Theatre
(Hebrews 13: 1-8, 15-16)

Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters.
Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers,
for some who have done this have entertained angels
without realizing it! 

Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself.

Remember also those being mistreated,
as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.

Give honor to marriage,
and remain faithful to one another in marriage.
God will surely judge people who are immoral
and those who commit adultery.

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have.
For God has said,

I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.

So we can say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper,
so I will have no fear.
What can mere people do to me?”

Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God.
Think of all the good that has come from their lives,
and follow the example of their faith.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 

 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus
a continual sacrifice of praise to God,
proclaiming our allegiance to his name. 

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need.
These are the sacrifices that please God.
