DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 8:20-9:29; Job 11:1-12:25; Matt. 6:1-18

Isaac said, “Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” Genesis 22:7
There shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him. Revelation 22:3

Little did Isaac realize that this question to his father would have eternal significance. The Lamb of God would be brought to the slaughter on Moriah’s hill to pay the price for the entire removal of sin’s curse. Following His victory, He was welcomed home with the words, “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee” (Acts 13:33). During the neverending ages of glory, we will adoringly worship, and serve the once slain, but now glorified Lamb of God. —Arnot P. McIntee

When, by the gift of His infinite grace, I am accorded in heaven a place,
Just to be there and to look on His face, will through the ages be glory for me. —Charles H. Gabriel
