DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 29:1-36; Ezekiel 45:1-25; John 20:19-31

And Shallum the son of Col-hozeh, ruler of the district of Mizpah, repaired the Fountain Gate. He rebuilt it and covered it and set its doors, its bolts, and its bars. And he built the wall of the Pool of Shelah of the king’s garden, as far as the stairs that go down from the city of David. Nehemiah 3:15

Two other gates were repaired before the fountain gate— the valley gate and the dung gate. Isn’t this the Christian’s experience? We travel through the valley of sin and hopelessness. We’re convicted—and trust our Saviour. Behind us lies the dung heap of sin and before us the cleansing fountain! Happy are those who find Christ—the repairer of lives and the restorer of souls! —D. Manera

To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable,
Because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you. —C. S. Lewis
