Exodus 27:20-28:14; Psalm 73:1-28; Acts 15:36-16:15

Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, “We have Abraham as our father.”…God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. Luke 3:8, NKJV

Richard Dawkins states that his earliest doubts about “religion” came because he felt that any “faith” he had was the product of his upbringing in the UK. He questioned how God could be just when a person’s opportunity for “faith” was purely a result of their birthplace. What he failed to realize is that Christianity is not a cultural experience at all. It is a worldwide call to each man, woman and child to put their faith in Christ. In a coming day representatives from every tongue, tribe and nation will praise Him. —Jeff Frey

God of every tribe and nation, Lord of continents and seas,
Come, renew Your whole creation, come to heal this world’s disease. —Author Unknown

DAILY READINGS: Ex. 27:20-28:14; Psalm 73:1-28; Acts 15:36-16:15

Let them alone: they are blind guides. Matthew 15:14 

We once were blind, but our blessed Saviour gave us sight. The Spiritual pride of the Pharisees caused them to refuse to acknowledge their blindness. And pride is sin. Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains” (John 9:41). Men believe what they want to believe. God gave and respects that freedom of choice. Therefore, “let them alone” is the recognition of a choice that will determine their eternal destiny. Have you made your choice? —Vernon Markle

Choose now, just now! There’s a soul at stake! Oh what
will your answer be? Tis life or death; and the choice you make;
Is made for eternity. —H. Fithian
