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


Endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

Behold, I have given him [for] a witness to the people, a
leader and commander to the people.--It became him, for whom
[are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many
sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect
through sufferings.--We must through much tribulation enter into
the kingdom of God.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
[places]. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God.--We
do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare
[are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of
strong holds).

The God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal
glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make
you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you].

The unity of the Spirit.

[There is] one body, and one Spirit.--Through him we both
have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are
no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the
saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the
foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself
being the chief corner [stone]; in whom all the building fitly
framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom
ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through
the Spirit.

Behold, how good and how pleasant [it is] for brethren to
dwell together in unity! [It is] like the precious ointment upon
the head, that ran down upon the beard, [even] Aaron's beard:
that went down to the skirts of his garments.

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth
through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see
that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently.
