Genesis 40:1-23; Psalm 18:1-29; Matthew 23:1-39
With the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise… but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Pet. 3:8-9, NKJV
The Lord is neither slack nor slow concerning the promise of His coming. In our first verse, we see how glorious God is: He is above and beyond the element of time. But then we see how gracious He is, as He stepped into time to save us and bring us to repentance. The world will perish one day by His hand, but by that same nail-scarred hand, He shows that He has no desire for anyone to perish. —N. C. Funston
Saved by His pow’r divine! Saved to new life sublime!
Life now is sweet and my joy is complete, for I’m saved, saved, saved! —J. Scholfield
