April 27 morning
Brethren, the time is short.
Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. – The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. – As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Death is swallowed up in victory. – Whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. – To live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Cast not away … your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. – The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. – The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

April 27 evening
A new name.
The disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. – Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. – They that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. – Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Be ye … followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covet-ousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints. Now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.
