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

Morning:

The life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have
given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement
for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh
an atonement for the soul.

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the
world.--The blood of the Lamb.--The precious blood of Christ, as
of a lamb without blemish and without spot.--Without shedding of
blood is no remission.--The blood of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.

By his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption [for us].--Having therefore,
brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of
Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for
us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh. . . . Let us
draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your
body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Evening:

Oh that I had wings like a dove!
[for then] would I fly away, and be at rest.

It came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God
prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of
Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said,
[It is] better for me to die than to live.

Job spake, and said, . . . Wherefore is light given to him
that is in misery, and life unto the bitter [in] soul; which
long for death, but it [cometh] not; and dig for it more than
for hid treasures?--Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous:
but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save
me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.--
In all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his]
brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest
in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the
sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being
tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
