Daily Light - Morning
Let him take hold of my strength,
that he may make peace with me.
I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil. - There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.
It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself. - Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past...that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

Daily Light - Evening
God hath given to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
As the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will... As the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. - I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep... I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. - No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. - For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

A Puritans Catechism
Q12 - What special act of providence did God exercise towards man in the state wherein he was created?
A - When God had created man, he entered into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of perfect obedience; forbidding him to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, upon pain of death.
BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Christ the Mediator
Man, by his fall into a state of sin, has wholly lost all ability of will to any spiritual good accompanying salvation;4 so as a natural man, being altogether averse from that good, and dead in sin,5 is not able by his own strength to convert himself, or to prepare himself thereunto.6
4 Rom. 5:6, 8:7
5 Eph. 2:1,5
6 Titus 3:3–5; John 6:44

Communion with God
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. - James 4 v 8
I ought to spend the best hours of the day in communion with God. It is my noblest and most fruitful employment, and is not to be thrust into any corner. A calm hour with God is worth a whole lifetime with man.
