DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 15:1-29; Ezekiel 16:1-34; John 5:24-47

For the creation was subjected to futility (frustration), not willingly…creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption. Romans 8:20-21, NKJV

Creation has and is suffering because of the Fall. Volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, all suggest that planet earth is protesting in frustration. But the creation will be delivered. There is a day of deliverance ahead. In the coming reign of the Lord Jesus Christ, all will be changed. One day the whole earth will be filled with His glory (Ps. 72). —Drew Craig

Jesus shall reign, where ere the sun,
Doth its successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moon shall wax and wane no more. —Isaac Watts

DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 15:1-29; Ezekiel 16:1-34; John 5:24-47

As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12, NKJV

I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions, And like a cloud, your sins. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you. Isaiah 44:22, NKJV 

He…will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins Into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19, NKJV

A few moments consideration of these verses will assure us of two facts. Firstly, our forgiveness is all-inclusive and perfect. Secondly, the sin-atoning work of the Lord Jesus is unlimited and unfailing. His work alone, is the basis upon which our cleansing “from all sin” rests secure. (1 John 1:7, NKJV). —G. Hall

O, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow: No other
fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus. —Robert Lowry
