Preface - A solemn general fast and humiliation. The Levites make a religious confession of God's manifold goodness, and of the national sins, which had occasioned the people's miseries.
Preface - The Holy Ghost is conferred by Paul on twelve of John's disciples. He preacheth at Ephesus, first in the synagogue, and afterward in a private school for two years; God confirming the word by special miracles. Certain Jewish exorcists, attempting to cast out a devil in the name of Jesus, are sent off naked and wounded: the gospel gaineth credit, and magical books are burned. Paul proposing to depart soon, Demetrius and the silversmiths raise an uproar against him, which is with some difficulty appeased.

Serving the Lord with all humility of mind.
Whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
If a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. - I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man...not to think of himself more highly that he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. - When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Our rejoicing is this...that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world.- We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Daily Light - Evening
We have turned every one to his own way.
Noah...planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunken. - Abrahm...said unto Sarai his wife...Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake. - Isaac said unto Jacob...Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am. - Moses...spake unadvisedly with his lips. - The men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD. And Joshua made peace with them. - David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. - The LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Good Works
Their ability to do good works is not all of themselves, but wholly from the Spirit of Christ;10 and that they may be enabled thereunto, besides the graces they have already received, there is necessary an actual influence of the same Holy Spirit, to work in them and to will and to do of his good pleasure;11 yet they are not bound to perform any duty, unless upon a special motion of the Spirit, but they ought to be diligent in stirring up the grace of God that is in them.12

Asked to a feast
I am the living bread which cometh down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. - John 6 v 51
Christians, learn to feed more on Christ: 'Eat, O friends! drink, yea drink abundantly, O beloved!' When you are asked to a feast, there is no greater affront you can put upon the entertainer than by being content with a crumb below the table. Yet this is the way the Christians of our day affront the Lord of glory. Oh, how few seem to feed much on Christ! How few seem to put on his white flowing raiment! How few seem to drink deep into his Spirit! Most are content with a glimpse now and then of pardon - a crumb from the table, and a drop of his Spirit. Awake, dear friends! 'These things have I spoken unto you, that your joy may be full.'
