DAILY READINGS: Numbers 29:1-40; Proverbs 25:1-26:12; Luke 2:22-52

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:14

Believers are God’s “workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works” (Eph. 2:10). He sacrificed Himself to purchase us from bondage fruit of the Spirit’s work in us (Gal. 5:22-25), and a life of benevolent
service is the fulfilment of God’s will for His children. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). —K. R. Keyser

Reward,—not like the deed, that poor weak deed of thine;
But like the God Himself who gives, eternal and divine. —Horatius Bonar
