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

Morning:

This [is] the ordinance of the passover:
There shall no stranger eat thereof.

We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which
serve the tabernacle.--Except a man be born again, he cannot see
the kingdom of--God. That at that time ye were without Christ,
being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from
the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the
world: but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are
made nigh by the blood of Christ.

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, . . . having
abolished in his flesh the enmity, [even] the law of
commandments [contained] in ordinances; for to make in himself
of twain one new man, [so] making peace.

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but
fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.

If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in
to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Ex 12:43 Heb 13:10 Joh 3:3 Eph 2:12-15,19 Re 3:20


Evening:

[Jesus] prayed the third time, saying the same words.

Who in the days of his flesh, . . . offered up prayers and
supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was
able to save him from death.

Then shall we know, [if] we follow on to know the LORD.--
Continuing instant in prayer.--Praying always with all prayer
and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all
perseverance and supplication.--By prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the
peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your
hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt].--This is the
confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing
according to his will, he heareth us.

Delight thyself . . . in the LORD; and he shall give thee the
desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also
in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.
