Morning Reading

Have mercy upon
me, O God.

—Psalm 51:1

When Dr.
Carey was suffering from a dangerous illness, the enquiry was made, “If
this sickness should prove fatal, what passage would you select as the text for
your funeral sermon?” He replied, “Oh, I feel that such a poor sinful
creature is unworthy to have anything said about him; but if a funeral sermon
must be preached, let it be from the words, ‘Have mercy upon me, O God,
according to Thy lovingkindness; according unto the multitude of Thy tender
mercies blot out my transgressions.'” In the same spirit of humility he
directed in his will that the following inscription and nothing more should be
cut on his gravestone:-

WILLIAM
CAREY, BORN AUGUST 17th, 1761:
DIED – –

“A
wretched, poor, and helpless worm
On Thy kind arms I fall.”

Only on the
footing of free grace can the most experienced and most honoured of the saints
approach their God. The best of men are conscious above all others that they
are men at the best. Empty boats float high, but heavily laden vessels are low
in the water; mere professors can boast, but true children of God cry for mercy
upon their unprofitableness. We have need that the Lord should have mercy upon
our good works, our prayers, our preachings, our alms-givings, and our holiest
things. The blood was not only sprinkled upon the doorposts of Israel’s
dwelling houses, but upon the sanctuary, the mercy-seat, and the altar, because
as sin intrudes into our holiest things, the blood of Jesus is needed to purify
them from defilement. If mercy be needed to be exercised towards our duties,
what shall be said of our sins? How sweet the remembrance that inexhaustible
mercy is waiting to be gracious to us, to restore our backslidings, and make
our broken bones rejoice!

(Observation of impiety and religions Integrity)

Proverbs 28:20-27A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.To have respect of person is not good: for for a  piece of bread that men will transgress. He that hasteth  to be rich  hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him. He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: But he that puts his trust in the LORD shall be made fat. He that trusteth in his own heart is fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse:  ( Ezek.13:19,1Tim.6:6)

 

You have profaned me among my people for a few handful of barley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live. But godliness with contentment is great gain. (1Peter5:8)

He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [he is] my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall [shall ye be, and as] a tottering fence. They only consult to cast [him] down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him. He only [is] my rock and my salvation: [he is] my defence; I shall not be moved. In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God. (Psalm 62:2-7)
Because of our incredible salvation in Christ, we can depend upon Him in times of turmoil and suffering. He alone is our refuge and strength as our soul silently waits in great expectation for His second coming.

“Warning Against  Unbelief”

 

Num. 14:11, Heb.3:8, Ps.78:22, John 12:37

 

The LORD said to Moses,

How long will these people treat me contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them?

 

“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert, for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance.

Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him”

“Personal Call by this Gospel”

Invitation to the Thirsty
By Christ- Surely you will summon nations that do not know you will hasten to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor”. (Isa.55:5) He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.(2Thess.2:14) Turn to me and be saved; all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.(Isa.45:22) “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”(Matt.20:16) And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. (Romans1:6)The Spirit and the bride say “Come!” And let him who hear say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.(Rev.22:17) Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your fathers.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me.(Jeremiah 35:15)

Not many wise are called >(1Corinthians 1:26) Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.

To fellowship with Christ> (1Cor.1:9, 1Thess.4:7, Gal.5:13)
God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord is faithful. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature rather, serve one another in love.

To eternal glory of Christ – (2Thess.2:14) He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Partakers of Justified: (Rom.8:30) And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Make your calling sure: (2Pet.1:10, 1Pet.2:9) Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
