Daily Light's Morning Reading

We look for the Saviour.PHI. 3:20.

The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world, looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.—We, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.—And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Tit. 2:11-14. -II Pet. 3:13,14.Heb 9:28. -Isa. 25:9.

Spurgeon's Morning Reading

“Whom he justified, them he also glorified.”

Romans 8:30

Here is a precious truth for thee, believer. Thou mayest be poor, or in suffering, or unknown, but for thine encouragement take a review of thy “calling” and the consequences that flow from it, and especially that blessed result here spoken of. As surely as thou art God’s child today, so surely shall all thy trials soon be at an end, and thou shalt be rich to all the intents of bliss. Wait awhile, and that weary head shall wear the crown of glory, and that hand of labour shall grasp the palm-branch of victory. Lament not thy troubles, but rather rejoice that ere long thou wilt be where “there shall be neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.” The chariots of fire are at thy door, and a moment will suffice to bear thee to the glorified. The everlasting song is almost on thy lip. The portals of heaven stand open for thee. Think not that thou canst fail of entering into rest. If he hath called thee, nothing can divide thee from his love. Distress cannot sever the bond; the fire of persecution cannot burn the link; the hammer of hell cannot break the chain. Thou art secure; that voice which called thee at first, shall call thee yet again from earth to heaven, from death’s dark gloom to immortality’s unuttered splendours. Rest assured, the heart of him who has justified thee beats with infinite love towards thee. Thou shalt soon be with the glorified, where thy portion is; thou art only waiting here to be made meet for the inheritance, and that done, the wings of angels shall waft thee far away, to the mount of peace, and joy, and blessedness, where,

“Far from a world of grief and sin,

With God eternally shut in,”

thou shalt rest forever and ever.

Old Testament Chapter a Day - Song of Solomon 6

6. Friends


Where has your beloved gone,

O fairest among women?

Which way has your beloved turned,

that we may seek him with you?



My beloved has gone down to his garden,

to the beds of spices,

to pasture his flock in the gardens,

and to gather lilies.


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

he pastures his flock among the lilies.


The Bride’s Matchless Beauty


You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love,

comely as Jerusalem,

terrible as an army with banners.


Turn away your eyes from me,

for they overwhelm me!

Your hair is like a flock of goats,

moving down the slopes of Gilead.


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.


Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate

behind your veil.


There are sixty queens and eighty concubines,

and maidens without number.


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.


“Who is this that looks forth like the dawn,

fair as the moon, bright as the sun,

terrible as an army with banners?”



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.


Before I was aware, my fancy set me

in a chariot beside my prince.



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?

7. Jesus Teaches at Feast of Tabernacles

The Unbelief of Jesus’ Brothers


After this Jesus went about in Galilee. He did not wish to go about in Judea because the Jews were looking for an opportunity to kill him.2Now the Jewish festival of Booths was near.3So his brothers said to him, “Leave here and go to Judea so that your disciples also may see the works you are doing;4for no one who wants to be widely known acts in secret. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.”5(For not even his brothers believed in him.)6Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always here.7The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify against it that its works are evil.8Go to the festival yourselves. I am not going to this festival, for my time has not yet fully come.”9After saying this, he remained in Galilee.

Assurance of Victory for God’s Priest-King

Of David. A Psalm.


The Lord says to my lord,

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies your footstool.”



The Lord sends out from Zion

your mighty scepter.

Rule in the midst of your foes.


Your people will offer themselves willingly

on the day you lead your forces

on the holy mountains.

From the womb of the morning,

like dew, your youth will come to you.


The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,

“You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”



The Lord is at your right hand;

he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.


He will execute judgment among the nations,

filling them with corpses;

he will shatter heads

over the wide earth.


He will drink from the stream by the path;

therefore he will lift up his head.
