"The Lord our God has shewed us his glory." Today's Devotional Reading Deuteronomy 5:24 God's great design in all his works is the manifestation of his own glory. Any aim less than this were unworthy of himself. But how shall the glory of God be manifested to such fallen creatures as we are? Man's eye is not single, he has ever a side glance towards his own honour, has t...

"In summer and in winter shall it be." Today's Devotional Reading Zechariah 14:8The streams of living water which flow from Jerusalem are not dried up by the parching heats of sultry midsummer any more than they were frozen by the cold winds of blustering winter. Rejoice, O my soul, that thou art spared to testify of the faithfulness of the Lord. The seasons change and t...

"Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods." Today's Devotional Reading Jeremiah 16:20 One great besetting sin of ancient Israel was idolatry, and the spiritual Israel are vexed with a tendency to the same folly. Remphan's star shines no longer, and the women weep no more for Tammuz, but Mammon still intrudes his golden calf, and the shrines of pride are n...

"His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Today's Devotional Reading Luke 22:44 The mental pressure arising from our Lord's struggle with temptation, so forced his frame to an unnatural excitement, that his pores sent forth great drops of blood which fell down to the ground. This proves how tremendous must have been the weight of sin whe...

"Remember the poor." Today's Devotional Reading Galatians 2:10 Why does God allow so many of his children to be poor? He could make them all rich if he pleased; he could lay bags of gold at their doors; he could send them a large annual income; or he could scatter round their houses abundance of provisions, as once he made the quails lie in heaps round the camp of Israel...

"He is precious." Today's Devotional Reading 1 Peter 2:7 As all the rivers run into the sea, so all delights centre in our Beloved. The glances of his eyes outshine the sun: the beauties of his face are fairer than the choicest flowers: no fragrance is like the breath of his mouth. Gems of the mine, and pearls from the sea, are worthless things when measured by his preci...

"The wrath to come." Today's Devotional Reading Matthew 3:7 It is pleasant to pass over a country after a storm has spent itself; to smell the freshness of the herbs after the rain has passed away, and to note the drops while they glisten like purest diamonds in the sunlight. That is the position of a Christian. He is going through a land where the storm has spent itsel...

Opening Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to receive you, and your kingdom, like a little child today. Give me the openness and the expectancy and the trust to empty my hands - and my soul - of whatever I am full of, in order to make room for you in my life. Thank you that you desire to give me the gift of yourself today, whatever that may look like. Help me to be willing and op...

Christ himself is the builder of his spiritual temple, and he has built it on the mountains of his unchangeable affection, his omnipotent grace, and his infallible truthfulness. But as it was in Solomon's temple, so in this; the materials need making ready. There are the "Cedars of Lebanon," but they are not framed for the building; they are not cut down, and shaped, and m...
