Daily Light on the Daily Path

Friday, August 7th
The Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name.
If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.--If ye, . . . being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall [your] heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?--Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give [it] you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.--Ye have not, because ye ask not.
When . . . the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.
They rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, [and] he fought against them.
What think ye of Christ?
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory.--He hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Unto you . . . which believe [he is] precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.--Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ.--Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.
