DAILY READINGS: Numbers 16:41-17:13; Proverbs 14:1-35; 2 Peter 1:1-21

Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: “Whoever believes will not be in haste.” Isaiah 28:16

The building at which I looked was attractive in design and finish. Why then was it to be demolished? The foundation was defective! How important it is to have “a sure foundation” for eternity! Only in Jesus Christ can spiritual security be had. Our “good works” provide no salvation. Whoever trusts in Christ is for ever secure (John 3:16). —George Hall

On Christ salvation rests secure; The Rock of ages must endure;
Nor can that faith be overthrown, Which rests upon the “living Stone.”
—Samuel Medley

DAILY READINGS: Numbers 16:41-17:13; Proverbs 14:1-35; 2 Peter 1:1-21

But think on me when it shall be well with thee. Genesis 40:14

Joseph remained in prison for two full years due to the forgetfulness of the butler. As we gather together to remember our Saviour today, we think upon one far greater than a Joseph. And because of Him, it is well with us today! We are on the victory side and travelling the narrow road which leads unto life. We dare not forget Him. May we continually think upon our Saviour. —John M. Clegg

Lord, we would ne’er forget Thy love,
Who hast redeemed us by Thy blood;
And now, as our High Priest above,
Dost intercede for us with God. —James G. Deck
