Today's Devotion (Saturday, Apr 30)

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


Whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love
of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

The God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord
Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of
the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to
do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his
sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for ever and
ever. Amen.

Hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his
commandments.--If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my
Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our
abode with him.--Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever
sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children,
let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is
righteous, even as he is righteous.--Herein is our love made
perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as he is, so are we in this world.

1Jo 2:5 Heb 13:20,21 1Jo 2:3 Joh 14:23 1Jo 3:6,7 4:17


[He that is] slow to wrath [is] of great understanding.

The LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The
LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering.--The Lord is not
slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but
is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.

Be ye . . . followers of God, as dear children; and walk in
love.--The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness,
temperance: against such there is no law.--This [is]
thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief,
suffering wrongfully. For what glory [is it], if, when ye be
buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if,
when ye do well, and suffer [for it], ye take it patiently, this
[is] acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called:
because Christ . . . suffered for us, leaving us an example,
that ye should follow his steps. . . . who, when he was reviled,
reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but
committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously.

Be ye angry, and sin not.
