August 8


The path of the just is like the shining sun, that
shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. 

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. § Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord.

Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. § We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. § When that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. § For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. § Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

Prov. 4:18; Phil. 3:12; Hos. 6:3; Matt. 13:43; 2 Cor. 3:18;
1 Cor. 13:10; 13:12; 1 John 3:2–3


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

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 will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him! § I will put My Spirit within you … Thus says the Lord God: “I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this.”

This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Rom. 10:13; John 6:37; Luke 23:42–43; Matt. 20:32–34;
Luke 11:13; Ezek. 36:27, 37; 1 John 5:14–15
