DAILY READINGS: Numbers 28:1-31; Proverbs 24:1-34; Luke 2:1-21

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36 

And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. John 17:3

What exciting words revealing to us Jesus Christ, the Source and Giver of eternal life! Amazing grace available for everyone
irrespective of race, culture, or language! It cannot be earned or attained by merit. It is gained only by faith, receiving the
gift He has provided through His death on the cross. Will you become the possessor of eternal life today? —Jim Paul

Whoever receiveth the crucified one, whoever believeth on
God’s only Son, A free and a perfect salvation shall have,
for He is abundantly able to save. —E. A. Hoffman

DAILY READINGS: Numbers 28:1-31; Proverbs 24:1-34; Luke 2:1-21

There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. Isaiah 57:21
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace. Job 22:21
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. John 14:27

In an effort to find peace, mankind resorts to all sorts of religious practices or pursues a multitude of passing pleasures. But God has told us there is no peace for the wicked. However God also tells us that if we get to know Him, we will find peace. The only way you can find that peace which will carry you through life and on into eternity is by believing Christ died for your sins, repenting of your sin and by faith, receiving Christ into your heart. —David Croudace

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know and He is on the throne. —Edward H. Bickersteth
