Today's Devotion (Wednesday, Jul 30)

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

Morning:

Seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Get wisdom, get understanding.--The wisdom that is from
above.--The depth saith, It [is] not in me: and the sea saith,
[It is] not with me.--We are buried with him by baptism into
death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the
glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of
life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of
his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his]
resurrection.

Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so
easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is
set before us.--God . . . hath quickened us together with
Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised [us] up
together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in
Christ Jesus.

They that say such things declare plainly that they seek a
country.--Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have
wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness.

Col 3:1 Pr 4:5 Jas 3:17 Job 28:14 Ro 6:4,5 Heb 12:1
Eph 2:4-6 Heb 11:14 Zep 2:3


Evening:

Nicodemus . . . he that came to Jesus by night.

Peter followed him afar off.--Among the chief rulers also
many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not
confess [him], lest they should be put out of the synagogue: for
they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.--The
fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the
LORD shall be safe.

Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.--A bruised
reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not
quench.--Faith as a grain of mustard seed.

God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and
of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of
the testimony of our Lord.--Little children, abide in him; that,
when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed
before him at his coming.--Whosoever . . . shall confess me
before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in
heaven.
