Devotions

 

Daily Light on the Daily Path

For over a century, Daily Light on the Daily Path has been a favorite devotional book of those who realize the tremendous benefit of reading and praying Scripture. Originally printed in the mid-1800s, Daily Light was born out of the devout faith of Samuel Bagster, a British bookstore owner determined to share his faith with his twelve children. The Bagsters’ daily practice of reading Scripture together, then connecting the day’s verses with other passages, inspired one of the children to compile their devotions for publication. The family discussed and prayed over the selection and arrangement of each verse until they were convinced that no further improvement could be made. After two years of prayer and consideration, the devotions were printed in two volumes for morning and evening reading.

    “Who can stand?”

    Who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap.

    I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands…. “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

    There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.—For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

    Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you.

    “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”

    “Let them lay hold of my protection, let them make peace with me, let them make peace with me.”—“Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.”

    Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.—A person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ.—By works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight.

    “By him everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses.”

    But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

      “Agree with God, and be at peace;
        thereby good will come to you.

        they shall become like wool.
