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


I have loved thee with an everlasting love:
therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

We are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren
beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen
you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief
of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the
obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.--[God] hath
saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to
our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was
given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.--Thine eyes did
see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my
members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned,
when [as yet there was] none of them.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us,
and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins.

Jer 31:3 2Th 2:13,14 2Ti 1:9 Ps 139:16 Joh 3:16 1Jo 4:10


I have made, and I will bear.

Thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that
formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I
have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine. When thou
passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through
the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.--[Even] to [your] old
age I [am] he; and [even] to hoar hairs will I carry [you].

As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young,
spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her
wings: [so] the LORD alone did lead him.--He bare them, and
carried them all the days of old.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.--
For I am persuaded, that neither . . . height, nor depth, nor
any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love
of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not
have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget,
yet will I not forget thee.
