Nehemiah 1:1-2:20; Daniel 11:21-45; Revelation 7:1-17

I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly. Psalm 22:10

Only the incarnate Son loved God the Father with His entire being and life. From Bethlehem’s manger to Calvary’s cross, Christ glorified Him with every thought, word and deed. Never was God more honoured than when Christ sacrificed His life on the cross. As Romans 15:3 says: “Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me”. Only by abiding in Him can we love the Father as we should. —Keith Keyser

O Thou who this world as a lone pilgrim trod,
Thy Father our Father, Thy God is our God;
To Thee we behold the bright seraphim bow:
Lord Jesus, what glory doth rest on Thee now! —Ira Sankey
