DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 2:1-25; Jeremiah 35:1-19; Hebrews 7:1-28

Mighty men of valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers…mighty men of valour…men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do. 1 Chronicles 5:24; 12:30, 32

Men like this are needed today. Men of spiritual might, strong in the Lord. Men of spiritual valour, willing to stand for God’s truth. Men who will contend earnestly for the faith and not degrade it, reduce it or deny it. Men who understand the times we live in, who believe firmly in the soon-coming of the Lord and who have spiritual wisdom to know what to do. Not crowd followers or crowd pleasers, but faithful men of God. Where are these men today? —Carl Knott

Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss. —George Duffield Jr
