Daily Light for January 19

“Serving the Lord with all humility.”

“But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.—For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.—“So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’”

For our boast is this: . . . that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God.—But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

Acts 20:19; Matt. 20:26-28; Gal. 6:3; Rom. 12:3; Luke 17:10; 2 Cor. 1:12; 2 Cor. 4:7 (Read full verses...)


We have turned every one to his own way.

Noah . . . planted a vineyard. He drank of the wine and became drunk.—[Abram] said to Sarai his wife, . . . “Say you are my sister, that it may go well with me because of you.”—Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Are you really my son Esau?” He answered, “I am.”—Moses . . . spoke rashly with his lips.—So the men took some of their provisions, but did not ask counsel from the LORD. And Joshua made peace with them.—David did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and did not turn aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

And all these . . . [were] commended through their faith.—And are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.—And the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

“It is not for your sake that I will act, declares the Lord GOD; let that be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your ways.”

Isa. 53:6; Gen. 9:20, 21; Gen. 12:11, 13; Gen. 27:21, 24; Ps. 106:32, 33; Josh. 9:14, 15; 1 Kings 15:5; Heb. 11:39; Rom. 3:24; Isa. 53:6; Ezek. 36:32 (Read full verses...)
