DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 11:1-12:21; Jer. 48:1-47; Hebrews 12:18-13:6

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and…He was buried, and…He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, NKJV

The work done by the Lord at Calvary was something only He could do. He was the only One who could take away sin—the sinless died for the sinner. He was the only One who could raise Himself from the dead! How wonderful! He is alive and able to cleanse anyone who puts their trust in Him. “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9, NKJV). —Jim Paul

There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin, He only could
unlock the gate of heaven and let us in. —Cecil Frances Alexander
