DAILY READINGS: Numbers 30:1-31; Proverbs 26:13-27:27; Luke 3:1-38

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, has everlasting life. John 5:24 

Both texts are quotes from Jesus Christ. Both are concerning a most important subject, everlasting life. Two of the most powerful words at first could be overlooked. They are “have” and “has.” We don’t hope for eternal life or expect to have it someday. It is ours here and now when we believe. Most of what we have can be taken from us but not our eternal life. Praise God. —Ken Gross

Redeemed, redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed, redeemed, His child and forever I am. —Fanny J. Crosby
