A truly excellent devotional I am now reading is 19th century Bible expositor Adolph Saphir's, The Hidden Life.
Here are some gems:
In the sweet valley of humiliation we behold Jesus exalted on His throne. Then the happy land, far, far away, seems very nigh; for we see the King in His beauty; our eyes behold the land that is far off.
Chosen in Christ, redeemed with His most precious blood, we know ourselves loved with a love which is its own source, which ever sustains and renews itself, and which brings us all that pertains to life and godliness.
