Today's Devotion (Friday, Aug 28)

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

Morning:

The accuser of our brethren is cast down,
which accused them before our God day and night.


They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word
of their testimony.--Who shall lay any thing to the charge of
God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth. Who [is] he that
condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen
again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh
intercession for us.

Having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of
them openly, triumphing over them in it.--That through death he
might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the
devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their
lifetime subject to bondage.--In all these things we are more
than conquerors through him that loved us.--Put on the whole
armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of
the devil. . . . And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword
of the Spirit, which is the word of God.--But thanks [be] to
God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Evening:

The tree of life.

God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his
Son.--He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.--As the Father
raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son
quickeneth whom he will. . . . As the Father hath life in
himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.

To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of
life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.--In the
midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was
there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits,
[and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree
[were] for the healing of the nations.

Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom. . . . Length of
days [is] in her right hand. . . . She [is] a tree of life to
them that lay hold upon her: and happy [is every one] that
retaineth her.--Christ Jesus . . . is made unto us wisdom.
