Preface - The number that return of the people, of the priests, of the Levites, of the Nethinims, of the children of Solomon's servants, of the priests who could not shew their pedigree. The whole number of them with their substance. Their ablations for the building of the temple.
Preface - The decent of the Holy Ghost upon the apostles on the day of Pentecost: they speak various languages to the general amazement, but some deride them. Peter sheweth that the inspiration spoken of by Joel was now fulfilled; that Jesus, whom they had crucified, was now risen from the dead, and ascended into heaven, according to David's predictions, and had shed forth the promise of the Holy Spirit in full proof of his being the Messias. A great number are converted by Peter's preaching; who, being baptized, converse devoutly and charitably together, the apostles working many miracles, and God daily increasing the church.
Daily Light - Morning
Sing unto the LORD a new song.
Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. - He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. - The joy of the LORD is your strength. - Paul...thanked God, and took courage.
Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Daily Light - Evening
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense;
and the lifting up of my hands are the evening sacrifice.
Thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon... And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat this is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee. And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning... And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even,heshall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD through-out your generations.
(Jeus) is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. - The smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the Angel's hand.
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptableto God by Jesus Christ.
Pray without ceasing.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
God did from all eternity decree to justify all the elect,11 and Christ did in the fullness of time die for their sins, and rise again for their justification;12 nevertheless, they are not justified personally, until the Holy Spirit in time does actually apply Christ to them.13
11 Gal. 3:8, 1 Pet. 1:2, 1 Tim. 2:6
12 Rom. 4:25
13 Col. 1:21–22, Titus 3:4–7

One shall say that I am the Lord's... - Isaiah 44 v 5
Oh! ther is no greater joy that for a believing soul to give himself all to God. This has always been the way in times of refreshing. It was so at Pentecost. First they gave their own selves unto the Lord. It was so with Boston, and Doddridge, and Edwards, and all the holy men of old.
"I have this day been before God," says Edwards, "and have given myself all that I am and have - to God; so that I am in no respect my own. I can challenge no right in myself - in this understanding, this will, these affections. Neither have I right to this body, or any of its members - no right to this tongue, these hands, these feet, these eyes, these ears. I have given myself clean away."
Oh! would that you knew the joy of giving yourself away. You cannot keep yourself. Oh! this day try and give all to Him. Lie in His hand.
