DAILY READINGS: Numbers 11:4-35; Proverbs 9:1-18; 1 Peter 1:1-25

“Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” Matthew 27:22

“Brothers, what shall we do?” Acts 2:37

The Lord Jesus is the great unavoidable. We must have a doing with Him. The Lord said that the Holy Spirit would convict the world of sin (John 16:8). The greatest demonstration of sin was the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus and all are guilty of this heinous act. What shall we do in light of our guilt concerning this? Peter answered that very question by preaching salvation through Christ and the result was 3,000 souls saved (Acts 2:38-41). What will you do? Only believe and you will be saved. —Neil Dougal

Come every soul by sin oppressed, there’s mercy with the Lord,
And He will surely give you rest, by trusting in His Word.

DAILY READINGS: Numbers 11:4-35; Proverbs 9:1-18; 1 Peter 1:1-25

And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas…and Matthias… and the lot fell on Matthias. Acts 1:23, 26, NKJV

Matthias was chosen by lot to join with the eleven disciples. What happened to Joseph, called Barsabas? Did he let anger and bitterness at not being chosen consume him? Or did he continue to trust in the Lord Jesus? Be patient, dear one. In the Lord’s perfect timing, He will choose you for His purposes (Eccl. 3:11). —Annette Baal

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
