Daily Light for January 23

And hope does not put us to shame.

“I am the LORD; those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.”—“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.”—“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”—For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, which is why I suffer as I do.—But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed.

So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf.

Rom. 5:5; Isa. 49:23; Jer. 17:7; Isa. 26:3, 4; Ps. 62:5, 6; 2 Tim. 1:12; Heb. 6:17-20 (Read full verses...)


The offense of the cross.

“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”—Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.—Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.—“Whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”—So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.”

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.—I have been crucified with Christ.—And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us.

Gal. 5:11; Matt. 16:24; Jas. 4:4; Acts 14:22; Rom. 9:33; 1 Pet. 2:7, 8;Gal. 6:14; Gal. 2:20; Gal. 5:24; 2 Tim. 2:12 (Read full verses...)
