Daily Light for January 5

Recommended Posts

Morning

For we who have believed enter that rest.

They weary themselves committing iniquity.—But I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”—Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

For whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works.—Not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.—“This is rest; give rest to the weary; and this is repose.”

Heb. 4:3; Jer. 9:5; Rom. 7:23-24; Matt. 11:28; Rom. 5:1, 2; Heb. 4:10; Phil. 3:9; Isa. 28:12 (Read full verses...)

Evening

Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?—For they made his spirit bitter, and he spoke rashly with his lips.

“It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”

A whisperer separates close friends.—There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.—But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. . . . From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices.—For this is the will of God, your sanctification.—And in their mouth no lie was found.

Ps. 141:3; Ps. 130:3; Ps. 106:33; Matt. 15:11; Prov. 16:28; Prov. 12:18, 19; Jas. 3:8, 10; Col. 3:8, 9; 1 Thess. 4:3; Rev. 14:5 (Read full verses...)
