Scripture for the Second Saturday in Advent

Romans 16:17-20

I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

O God of peace, guard Your church against those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to what we have been taught. Fill us with the Holy Spirit so that we recognize what is good and what is evil. As You promised in Your word, Lord, crush Satan under our feet. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
