Gospel Reading for December 15 2024 – Luke 3:10-18

10 The crowds asked John the Baptist, “What should we do?”

11 He said to them in reply, “Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.”

12 Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do?”

13 He answered them, “Stop collecting more than what is prescribed.”

14 Soldiers also asked him, “And what is it that we should do?” He told them,

“Do not practice extortion, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be satisfied with your wages.”

15 Now the people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Christ.

16 John answered them all, saying, “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

17 His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”

18 Exhorting them in many other ways, he preached good news to the people.
