A servant of Jesus Christ.
Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. – If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. – Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. – Being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. – Thou art no more a servant, but a son.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh.

May 16 evening
I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel.
His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor. – Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding, I have strength. – Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. – Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. – Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. – Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. – He knoweth the way that I take. – Man’s goings are of the LORD: how can a man then understand his own way?
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. – This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
