DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 35:1-27; Daniel 2:24-49; 1 John 5:1-21

What wrong did your fathers find in me that they went far from me? Jeremiah 2:5

Which one of you convicts me of sin? John 8:46

God cannot sin, not in heaven and not on earth! He is impeccable in glory and in the incarnation. There is no good reason for not believing Him, nor for not following Him. He could turn from us with reason, but He doesn’t! Let us renounce any worldly or fleshly wisdom or attraction, and follow Him with our whole hearts, with fresh love and renewed confidence. He cannot sin, and He cannot fail! —Carl Knott

Because the sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied to look on Him and pardon me.
—Charitie L. Bancroft
