A Sure Pledge and Earnest

CALL TO PRAYER
He has shown the mercy promised to our ancestors, and has remembered his holy covenant.
—Luke 1:72
PSALM
As far as east is distant from
the west, so far has he
all our transgressions thus removed,
that they no more will be.
—Psalm 103:12
Suggested tune (Richmond):
TEXT OF THE DAY
Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord on that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell in your midst. And you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you.
—Zechariah 2:11
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The Spirit of God has come down from heaven, and hallowed your soul to be a temple for himself to dwell in; as he has said, "I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." [2 Cor 6:16] Moreover, this gift of the Spirit is a sure pledge and earnest of your future glory.
—John Flavel
MORNING PRAYER
O fill me with thy fullness, Lord,
until my very heart overflow
in kindling thought and glowing word,
thy love to tell, thy praise to show. Amen.
—Frances Havergal
