Lord’s Day, November 5, 2017

DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 19:1-20:8/; Ezekiel 18:1-19:14; John 6:41-7:11

Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight. Proverbs 8:30
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Matthew 3:17

These verses show that whether in the pre-incarnate days of the Lord Jesus, or during the days of His flesh on earth, the Son was ever and always the delight of the Father. Indeed, the fellowship between the Father and the Son was not in the least diminished when He stepped into humanity. In preincarnate days, He was “daily his delight” whilst in the days of His flesh the Father says concerning the Son: “in whom I am well pleased”. —W. H. Burnett

All His joy, His rest His pleasure, all His deep delight in Thee,
Lord Thy heart alone can measure, all the Father found in Thee. —Wesley
