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


Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and
broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction: . . . because
strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that find it.--The kingdom of heaven
suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.--Labour
not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which
endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give
unto you.--Give diligence to make your calling and election
sure: for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly
into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ.--So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth
for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to
obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased
from his own works, as God [did] from his.--The LORD shall be
unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

Heb 4:11 Mt 7:13,14 11:12 Joh 6:27 2Pe 1:10,11 1Co 9:24,25
Heb 4:10 Isa 60:19


Thou hearest me always.

Jesus lifted up [his] eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee
that thou hast heard me.--Father, glorify thy name. Then came
there a voice from heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it],
and will glorify [it] again.--Lo, I come . . . to do thy will, O
God.--Not my will, but thine, be done.

As he is, so are we in this world.--This is the confidence
that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his
will, he heareth us.

Whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his
commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his

Without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that
cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

He ever liveth to make intercession for them.--We have an
advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
