Text of the Day

 

 

 

 
SEPTEMBER 26

 

 Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom all the building  fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spiritó Eph. 2: 20-22.

 

 Let us, as day after day rolls by, remember our threefold relationship to this Temple: (1) We are still in process of preparation as living stones. (2) As members of the Royal Priesthood carrying the Ark, we are marching from the Tabernacle into the Temple condition; some of our number have already entered in and some are still on the way. (3) As the Lordís people, the time has come for us to know, to sing with the spirit and understanding, the new song of Divine mercy, justice, love and truth. Let us be faithful in each of these respects, fulfilling our parts, and soon our course will be ended and the glory of the Lord will fill the Temple.
