Preface - Job acknowledgeth God's justice, wisdom, and power, against which there is no contending: he disclaimeth all thought of justifying himself; but insisteth that a man's innocency is not to be judged by the good or evil that befalls him in this world: he bringeth evidence of his own misfortunes, but will not presume to dispute with the author of them, who is so much above him.
Preface - Subjection to magistrates enforced. We must render to all their dues: only love is a debt we must always owe, and virtually containeth the whole law. Rioting, drunkenness, and other works of darkness, must be put away, as much out of season under the gospel.
Daily Light - Morning
The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light.
The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foollishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they ae spiritually discerned. - Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. - We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image... even as by the Spirit of the Lord. - God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father o fglory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and reverlation is the knowledge of him...that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
Lu. 11.34; 1 Co. 2.14; Ps. 119.18
Jn. 8.12; 2 Co. 3.18; 2 Co. 4.6
Daily Light - Evening
He smote the rock, that the water gushed out, and the streams overflowed.
All our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. - One of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. - He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. - My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. - Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Ps. 78.20; 1 Co. 10.1-4; Jn. 19.34; Isa. 53.5
Jn. 5.40; Jer. 2.13

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of the Gospel and the Extent of Grace Thereof
The revelation of the gospel to sinners, made in divers times and by sundry parts, with the addition of promises and precepts for the obedience required therein, as to the nations and persons to whom it is granted, is merely of the sovereign will and good pleasure of God;6 not being annexed by virtue of any promise to the due improvement of men's natural abilities, by virtue of common light received without it, which none ever made, or can do so;7 and therefore in all ages, the preaching of the gospel has been granted unto persons and nations, as to the extent or straitening of it, in great variety, according to the counsel of the will of God
6 Ps. 147:20; Acts 16:7
7 Rom. 1:18–32

... He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. - 2 Corinthians 9 v 6
I am going to say now what the world will scoff at. But all that I ask of you is, to be like the Bereans. Search the Scriptures, and see if these things be not so. The whole Bible shows, then, that the best way to have plenty in this world is to give liberally. 'Cast thy bread upon the waters, and thou shalt find it after many days.' This refers to the sowing of rice. The rice in the East is always sown when the fields are flooded with water. The bread-corn is actually cast upon the water. After many days the waters dry up, and a rich crop of waving rice covers the plain. So it is in giving liberally to the poor out of love to Jesus. It is like throwing away your money - it is like casting seed upon the waters. Yet fear not, you shall find a crop after many days - you shall have a return for your money in this world.
