Today's Devotion (Monday, Jan 30)

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

Morning:

Let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
looking to Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith.

If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and
take up his cross daily, and follow me.--Whoever he is of you
that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.--
Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness.

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. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so I
fight, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my
body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest by any means, when I
have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.--
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one
thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and
reaching forward to those things which are before, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus. Then shall we know, [if] we follow on to know the
LORD.

Evening:

[It is] good for a man that he should
bear the yoke in his youth.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.

We have had fathers of our flesh who corrected [us], and we
gave [them] reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection
to the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few
days chastened [us] after their own pleasure; but he for [our]
profit, that [we] might be partakers of his holiness.

Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy
word. . . . [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that
I might learn thy statutes.

I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
--Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time.
