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


The house [that is] to be builded for the LORD
[must be] exceeding magnifical.

Ye . . . as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house.--
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit
of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him
shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple]
ye are.--Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in
you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are
bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in
your spirit, which are God's.--What agreement hath the temple of
God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God
hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will
be their God, and they shall be my people.--Ye . . . 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.

1Ch 22:5 1Pe 2:5 1Co 3:16,17 1Co 6:19,20 2Co 6:16 Eph 2:19-22


He is before all things.

The Amen, . . . the beginning of the creation of God.--The
beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he
might have the preeminence.

The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his
works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,
or ever the earth was. . . . When he prepared the heavens, I
[was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
when he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the
fountains of the deep: when he gave to the sea his decree, that
the waters should not pass his commandment. . . . I was by him,
[as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight,
rejoicing always before him.--Yea, before the day [was] I [am]

The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.--The author
and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at
the right hand of the throne of God.
