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

Morning:

We look for the Saviour.

The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all
men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we
should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present
world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing
of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself
for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify
unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.--We,
according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that
ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him
in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto
them that look for him shall he appear the second time without
sin unto salvation.--And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this
[is] our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this
[is] the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and
rejoice in his salvation.

Evening:

So run, that ye may obtain.

The slothful [man] saith, [There is] a lion without, I shall
be slain in the streets.--Let us lay aside every weight, and the
sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with
patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the
author and finisher of [our] faith.

Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and
spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

I press toward the mark.--I . . . so run, not as uncertainly;
I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that
by any means, . . . I myself should be a castaway.

The fashion of this world passeth away.

Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new
heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be
diligent.--Gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to
the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the
revelation of Jesus Christ.
