DAILY READINGS: Exodus 21:1-36; Psalms 62:1-63:11; Acts 11:19-30

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. John 5:24 

Can you look back to a time when you passed from death into life? March 2, 1938 was when I first heard and understood the gospel. I was a rebellious young man and refused to obey my parents, but I knew I was a sinner. That afternoon a man of God explained the gospel to me. With tears I opened my heart and received Christ as my Lord and Saviour. It was the beginning of a new life. Have you as a broken sinner, repentant and believing, received the Lord Jesus? —Donald L. Norbie

Will you take Jesus to be your guide? His love will brighten the way;
Safe in His keeping you may abide; will you take Jesus today? —W. R.

Exodus 21:1-36; Psalms 62:1-63:11; Acts 11:19-30

When he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. Hebrews 1:3

Flooding extensively damaged our house. Although we hired a professional to do the repair work, I still felt nervous every time it rained. I shared my concerns with a very knowledgeable local developer, hoping that he could tell me if the issue had been properly resolved. To my surprise, he wasn’t interested in how the problem had been fixed. “Who did the work?” he wanted to know. When I named the man, the expert just smiled: “If he fixed it, it will be done right”. What a comfort to know our eternal security rests in the One who has done the work—the Lord Jesus Christ Himself! —Lynn Shatford

Thy work alone, my Saviour, can ease this weight of sin;
Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God, can give me peace within.—H. Bonar
