Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


The fruit of the Spirit is . . . temperance.

Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all
things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown; but we
an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so
fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my
body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means,
when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with
the Spirit.

If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and
take up his cross, and follow me.

Let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be
sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be
drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the
day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and
for an helmet, the hope of salvation.--Denying ungodliness and
worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly,
in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the
glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus

Grow up into him in all things,
which is the head, [even] Christ.

First the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in
the ear.--Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the
knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the
measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

They measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing
themselves among themselves, are not wise. . . . But he that
glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. For not he that commendeth
himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.

The body [is] of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your
reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels,
intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly
puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from
which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment
ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of

Grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
