ESV — Daily Light on the Daily Path: Day 241
241
Morning
Rev. 12:10; Rev. 12:11; Rom. 8:33, 34; Col. 2:15; Heb. 2:14, 15; Rom. 8:37; Eph. 6:11, 17; 1 Cor. 15:57

“The accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.”

They have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.—Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame.—That through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.—In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.—Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil…. And take… the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.—Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Evening
Gen. 2:9; 1 John 5:11; John 3:16; John 5:21, 26; Rev. 2:7; Rev. 22:2; Prov. 3:13, 16, 18; 1 Cor. 1:30

The tree of life.

God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.—“He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”—“As the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will…. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.”

“To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”—Through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom…. Long life is in her right hand…. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed.—Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom.

10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now xthe salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers1 has been thrown down, ywho accuses them day and night before our God.
