- 6 As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him,
- 7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
- 8 See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ.
- 9 For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily,
- 10 and you have come to fulness of life in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.
- 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ;
- 12 and you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
- 13 And you, who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,
- 14 having canceled the bond which stood against us with its legal demands; this he set aside, nailing it to the cross.
- 15 He disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in him.

Gospel for the day
- 12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.
- 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles;
- 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew,
- 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot,
- 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
- 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
- 18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured.
- 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all.
