Trust the Risen Christ
Those who trust in God and follow his ways (Jeremiah 17:5-10) are like trees planted next to water (Psalm 1). Jesus Christ was raised from the dead, so our faith is confirmed and we are compelled to share this gospel (1 Corinthians 15:12-20). Jesus came to bring hope to the oppressed and warning to those who trust in riches and worldly acclaim (Luke 6:17-26).
Psalm
Scripture Readings

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners...but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither....

O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen. - The Book of Common Prayer
