Daily Light - Morning
Unto the upright there ariseth
light in the darkness.
Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God. - Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. - The commandment is a lamp; and the law is light.
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
The light of the body is they eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
Ps. 112.4; Isa. 50.10; Ps. 37.24; Pro. 6.23

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:
he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat...I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. - We have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.
They brought young children to him...and he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. - Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant. - The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. - Ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Christ the Mediator
This office of mediator between God and man is proper only to Christ, who is the prophet, priest, and king of the church of God; and may not be either in whole, or any part thereof, transferred from Him to any other.43
1 Tim. 2:5

A sight of Christ
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. -
1 Corinthians 11 v 24
An unconverted man cannot remember Christ; for he hath never seen Him, neither known Him. A man who never tasted honey cannot remember the taste of it; so a man who never had a saving taste of the sweetness of the Lord Jesus cannot possibly remember Him. Indeed, there is a kind of remembrance of Christ that any man may have. You may remember the events of His life: that He was born in a stable, that He walked on the Lake of Galilee, that He wept over Jerusalem, that He prayed in Gethsemane, that He died on the cross on Calvary; but even the devils can remember Christ in this way. They remember all His history much more perfectly than we do. Satan has more knowledge of divine things than many doctors of divinity. And lost souls in eternal misery remember Jesus. But,, ah! this is not the saving remembrance of Jesus which we have at the Lord's Table.
When a labouring, heavy laden sinner is brought to the feet of Jesus, he finds a joy and peace in believing he never felt before. He gets a discovery of the love of Christ that he never had before; the love of Jesus in coming for the ungodly, and dying for them; the freeness of Christ to every creature, to sinners even the chief, to publicans and sinners, coming to Him; the wisdom and excellency of this way of salvation, the amazing glory and perfection of the righteousness of God. When the Spirit thus takes the veil from the eyes, he gets a sight of Christ which he never will, and never can, forget. This is the spiritual relish and discerning of the Lord's body.
