Samuel Bagster

Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.You He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, …...

Where is the way to the dwelling of light?

Samuel Bagster

God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. § As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

Whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.

Broken cisterns that can hold no water.

Samuel Bagster

Eve … bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens.” … The Lord scattered them. § Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan … It was well watered everywhere … like the garden of the Lord … But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord.I set my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is grasping for the wind. For in much...

Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Samuel Bagster

The one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. § “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” § “What do you want Me to do for you?” They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.” So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more...

The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.

Samuel Bagster

She did not know that I gave her grain, new wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold … Therefore I will return and take away My grain in its time and My new wine in its season, and will take back My wool and My linen.All things come from You, and of Your own we have given You. For we are aliens and pilgrims before You, as were all our fathers; our days on earth are as a shadow, and without hope. O Lord our God, all this abundance … is from Your hand, and is all Your own....

Your will be done.

Samuel Bagster

O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. § Not as I will, but as You will. § Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes...

From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed. § Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and You heard my voice. For You...

Those who honor Me I will honor.

Samuel Bagster

Whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of...

I have trodden the winepress alone.

Samuel Bagster

Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? § He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. § [He] Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree. § Having become a curse for us.Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!

Keep the unity of the Spirit.

Samuel Bagster

There is one body and one Spirit. § Through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
