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


As the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without works is dead also.

Not every one that saith, . . . Lord, Lord, shall enter into
the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father
which is in heaven.--Holiness, without which no man shall see
the Lord.--Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to
patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to
brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and
abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor
unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he
that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and
hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore
the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and
election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.

By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: not of works, lest any man
should boast.

Jas 2:26 Mt 7:21 Heb 12:14 2Pe 1:5-10 Eph 2:8-9


As the children are partakers of flesh and blood,
he also himself likewise took part of the same;
that [he might] deliver them who through fear
of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy
victory?--Thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.--For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is
renewed day by day.

We know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were
dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens.--Therefore [we are] always
confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we
are absent from the Lord. . . . We are . . . willing rather to
be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe
also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were]
not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for
you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye
may be also.
