Today's Devotion (Tuesday, Oct 21)

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

Morning:

Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.--Behold,
what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we
should be called the sons of God.

[His] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things.--If
children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;
if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also
glorified together.

I and [my] Father are one.--The Father [is] in me, and I in
him.--My Father, and your Father; . . . my God, and your God.--I
in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one.

The church, which is his body, the fulness of him that
filleth all in all.

Having . . . these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse
ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,
perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Joh 1:16 Mt 17:5 1Jo 3:1 Heb 1:2 Ro 8:17
Joh 10:30,38 20:17 17:23 Eph 1:22,23 2Co 7:1


Evening:

The servant is not greater than his lord;
neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

There was . . . a strife among them, which of them should be
accounted the greatest. And he said unto them, The kings of the
Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise
authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye [shall] not
[be] so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the
younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For
whether [is] greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that
serveth? [is] not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as
he that serveth.--Even as the Son of man came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom
for many.

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his
hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; he riseth
from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and
girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and
began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe [them] with the
towel wherewith he was girded.

Joh 13:16,17 Lu 22:24-27 Mt 20:28 Joh 13:3-5
