Daily Light on the Daily Path

Christ . . . loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.
Walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.--Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.-- Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.--Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.-- Thy word hath quickened me.
The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.
Through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one.
Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it]. . . . And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.--[There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.--When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, . . . Let us draw near.
