DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 44:1-34; Psalm 22:1-31; Matt. 25:31-46

Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. John 13:23
But Peter followed him afar off. Matthew 26:58

One of the benefits of God’s grace is that the door is always open for the believer to draw near to Him. It’s when we follow at a distance that we begin to have doubts, lose our joy, and fail to comprehend His love. On the other hand when we come to His open arms each day we experience His assurance that we are loved, accepted and welcomed. Daily fellowshipping with Him in His Word we learn how to follow Him, deepen our faith, and find strength for service. When others see us, do they know that we have been with Jesus? —George Ferrier

Nearer, still nearer, close to Thy heart,
Draw me, my Saviour, so precious Thou art. —Lelia N. Morris
