Today's Devotion (Saturday, Oct 20)

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

Morning:

I delight in the law of God after the inward man.

O how love I thy law! it [is] my meditation all the day.--Thy
words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me
the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.--I sat down under his
shadow with great delight, and his fruit [was] sweet to my
taste.--I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my
necessary [food].

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is] within
my heart.--My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to
finish his work.

The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart:
the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.
. . . More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much
fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.--Be ye
doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own
selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he
is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass.

Ps 19:8,10 Jas 1:22,23


Evening:

The LORD thy God accept thee.

Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, [and] bow myself
before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt
offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the LORD be pleased
with thousands of rams, [or] with ten thousands of rivers of
oil? shall I give my firstborn [for] my transgression, the fruit
of my body [for] the sin of my soul? He hath shewed thee, O
man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but
to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy
God?

We are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses
[are] as filthy rags.--There is none righteous, no, not one.--
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being
justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in
Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation
through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
to declare . . . at this time his righteousness: that he might
be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Accepted in the beloved.--Ye are complete in him.
