Preface - Darius, finding the decree of Cyrus, maketh a new decree for the advancement of the building. Tatnai and Shethar-boznai assisting according to the king's decree, the temple is finished. The feast of the dedication is kept, and the passover, with great joy.
Preface - The apostles, that the poor might not be neglected, recommend, and with the church's consent ordain seven chosen men deacons. The word of God prevaileth. Stephen, full of faith and the Holy Ghost, confuting those with whom he disputed, is brought before the council, and by suborned evidence falsely accused of blasphemy against the law and the temple.
Daily Light - Morning
Let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and
establish thou the work of our hands.
Thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God. - We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord. - The spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you.
Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. - Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. - Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
Ps. 90.17; Ezek. 16.14; 2 Co. 3.18; 1 Pe. 4.14

Daily Light - Evening
The apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus,
and told him all things...they had done.
There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. - The LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. - Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servantknoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants.
Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
In every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. - The prayer of the upright is his delight.
Mk. 6.30; Pro. 18.24; Ex. 33.11; Jn. 15.14-15

A Puritans Catechism
Q26 - Wherein did Christ's humiliation consist?
A - Christ's humiliation consisted in his being born, and that in a low condition, made under the law, undergoing the miseries of this life, the wrath of God, and the cursed death of the cross in being buried, and continuing under the power of death for a time.
BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
They who are united to Christ, effectually called, and regenerated, having a new heart and a new spirit created in them through the virtue of Christ's death and resurrection, are also farther sanctified, really and personally,1 through the same virtue, by his Word and Spirit dwelling in them;2 the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed,3 and the several lusts of it are more and more weakened and mortified,4 and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces,5 to the practice of all true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.6

Robert Murray M'Cheyne - God Makes A Path - Daily Devotional Readings
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the unttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. -
Psalm 2 v 8
Two farmers possessed two fields that lay next each other. The one had rich crops, the other very scanty ones. "How comes it." says the one to the other, "that your field bears so well, and mine so poorly, when my land is as good as yours?"
"Why neighbour," said the other, "the reason is this - you only sow your field, but I both sow mine and harrow in the seed." Just so, my dear friends, there is little fruit among Christians, because there is little harrowing in by prayer. I think I could name many Christians among you who do not know one another, and never pray one with another. What wonder there is little fruit!
