DAILY READINGS: Ex. 1:1-2:22; Psalm 31:1-24; Matt. 27:45-66

He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. Proverbs 29:1

I well remember a mother telling me the tragic words of her teenage son, “Mum, if you talk to me any more about Jesus or being saved, I’ll leave home and you’ll never see me again.” She replied, “I won’t mention it again, but I won’t stop praying for you son.” Sadly, a few weeks later he was killed in a tragic car accident and went into eternity, and as far as I know without Christ. How important to “Prepare to meet thy God” (Amos 4:12). “Behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2). Come to the Lord Jesus, today! —Jim Comte

Almost persuaded now to believe; almost persuaded Christ to receive:
Seems now some soul to say, “Go Spirit, go Thy way:
Some more convenient day on Thee I’ll call. —Philip P. Bliss
