Daily Light's Morning Reading

In everything ye are enriched by him.I COR. 1:5.

When we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.—He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine ye are the branches: he that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.—To will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.—Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.—Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.

Spurgeon's Morning Reading

“If they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”

Luke 23:31

Among other interpretations of this suggestive question, the following is full of teaching: “If the innocent substitute for sinners, suffer thus, what will be done when the sinner himself—the dry tree—shall fall into the hands of an angry God?” When God saw Jesus in the sinner’s place, he did not spare him; and when he finds the unregenerate without Christ, he will not spare them. O sinner, Jesus was led away by his enemies: so shall you be dragged away by fiends to the place appointed for you. Jesus was deserted of God; and if he, who was only imputedly a sinner, was deserted, how much more shall you be? “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” what an awful shriek! But what shall be your cry when you shall say, “O God! O God! why hast thou forsaken me?” and the answer shall come back, “Because ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh.” If God spared not his own Son, how much less will he spare you! What whips of burning wire will be yours when conscience shall smite you with all its terrors. Ye richest, ye merriest, ye most self-righteous sinners—who would stand in your place when God shall say, “Awake, O sword, against the man that rejected me; smite him, and let him feel the smart forever”? Jesus was spit upon: sinner, what shame will be yours! We cannot sum up in one word all the mass of sorrows which met upon the head of Jesus who died for us; therefore it is impossible for us to tell you what streams, what oceans of grief must roll over your spirit if you die as you now are. You may die so, you may die now. By the agonies of Christ, by his wounds and by his blood, do not bring upon yourselves the wrath to come! Trust in the Son of God, and you shall never die.

Old Testament Chapter a Day - Song of Solomon 6

Song of Solomon 6

6. Friends

 6

Where has your beloved gone,

O fairest among women?

Which way has your beloved turned,

that we may seek him with you?

 

2

My beloved has gone down to his garden,

to the beds of spices,

to pasture his flock in the gardens,

and to gather lilies.

3

I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;

he pastures his flock among the lilies.

 

The Bride’s Matchless Beauty

4

You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love,

comely as Jerusalem,

terrible as an army with banners.

5

Turn away your eyes from me,

for they overwhelm me!

Your hair is like a flock of goats,

moving down the slopes of Gilead.

6

Your teeth are like a flock of ewes,

that have come up from the washing;

all of them bear twins,

and not one among them is bereaved.

7

Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate

behind your veil.

8

There are sixty queens and eighty concubines,

and maidens without number.

9

My dove, my perfect one, is the only one,

the darling of her mother,

flawless to her that bore her.

The maidens saw her and called her happy;

the queens and concubines also, and they praised her.

10

“Who is this that looks forth like the dawn,

fair as the moon, bright as the sun,

terrible as an army with banners?”

 

11

I went down to the nut orchard,

to look at the blossoms of the valley,

to see whether the vines had budded,

whether the pomegranates were in bloom.

12

Before I was aware, my fancy set me

in a chariot beside my prince.

 

13

Return, return, O Shulammite!

Return, return, that we may look upon you.

 

Why should you look upon the Shulammite,

as upon a dance before two armies?

 

New Testament in Four Years - 1 Timothy 1:8-11

1 Timothy 1:8-11

1. Warning Against False Teachers

8 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately.9This means understanding that the law is laid down not for the innocent but for the lawless and disobedient, for the godless and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their father or mother, for murderers,10fornicators, sodomites, slave traders, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching11that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

Psalm a Day - Psalm 76

Psalm 76

76. Psalm 76

Psalm 76

Israel’s God—Judge of All the Earth

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1

In Judah God is known,

his name is great in Israel.

2

His abode has been established in Salem,

his dwelling place in Zion.

3

There he broke the flashing arrows,

the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.Selah

 

4

Glorious are you, more majestic

than the everlasting mountains.

5

The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;

they sank into sleep;

none of the troops

was able to lift a hand.

6

At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,

both rider and horse lay stunned.

 

7

But you indeed are awesome!

Who can stand before you

when once your anger is roused?

8

From the heavens you uttered judgment;

the earth feared and was still

9

when God rose up to establish judgment,

to save all the oppressed of the earth.Selah

 

10

Human wrath serves only to praise you,

when you bind the last bit of your wrath around you.

11

Make vows to the Lord your God, and perform them;

let all who are around him bring gifts

to the one who is awesome,

12

who cuts off the spirit of princes,

who inspires fear in the kings of the earth.
