September 14 morning
I, even I, am he that comforteth you.
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. – Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. – As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you. – Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.
Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
Another Comforter … even the Spirit of truth. – The Spirit … helpeth our infirmities.
God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

September 14 evening
Ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son.
He received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. – Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.
Be ye … followers of God, as dear children. – If children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ.
The brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person. – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame. – These things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. – As the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
