"A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me." Today's Devotional Reading Song of Solomon 1:13 Myrrh may well be chosen as the type of Jesus on account of its preciousness, its perfume, its pleasantness, its healing, preserving, disinfecting qualities, and its connection with sacrifice.

"I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint." Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 22:14 Did earth or heaven ever behold a sadder spectacle of woe!

"The place which is called Calvary." Today's Devotional Reading Luke 23:33 The hill of comfort is the hill of Calvary; the house of consolation is built with the wood of the cross; the temple of heavenly blessing is founded upon the riven rock - riven by the spear which pierced his side.

"And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him." Today's Devotional Reading Luke 23:27 Amid the rabble rout which hounded the Redeemer to his doom, there were some gracious souls whose bitter anguish sought vent in wailing and lamentations - fit music to accompany that march of woe. When my soul can, in imagination, ...

"If they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?"

When God saw...

"O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?" Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 4:2 An instructive writer has made a mournful list of the honours which the blinded people of Israel awarded to their long expected King.

"Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp." Today's Devotional Reading Hebrews 13:13 Jesus, bearing his cross, went forth to suffer without the gate. The Christian's reason for leaving the camp of the world's sin and religion is not because he loves to be singular, but because Jesus did so; and the disciple must follow his Master. Christ was "not of the world:...

"On him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus." Today's Devotional Reading Luke 23:26 We see in Simon's carrying the cross a picture of the work of the Church throughout all generations; she is the cross-bearer after Jesus.
