Leviticus 12:1-13:23; Psalms 116:1-117:2; Mark 3:13-35

The gift by grace…by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. Romans 5:15

One person by God’s grace can make a great difference to the world. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:8) and he saved his family from the flood and populated the earth. Moses had God with him and he delivered His people out of Egypt (Ex. 3:12). Joshua was promised God’s presence and he led God’s people into the promised land (Josh. 1:5). With God with you, go forward in His grace today. —K. C. Ung

If you dwell beneath the shelter, of the Lord your God Most High,
You will rest within the shadow of Almighty El Shaddai.
He’ll deliver you from all your foes,
As you raise up the cry, “My God, in whom I trust”! —S. H. Peterson

DAILY READINGS: Lev. 12:1-13:23; Psalms 116:1-117:2; Mark 3:13-35

Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord, together with his entire household. And many of the Corinthians hearing Paul believed and were baptized. Acts 18:8

Here is the pattern desired by God for each of us. What have you heard about the Lord Jesus? He is God’s Son sent to be the Saviour of the world; He is sinless; He died on the cross for our sins and He rose from the grave. Do you believe this? If you truly believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, why not follow His command and be baptized? —Bob Cretney

Oh believe it! Oh believe it! Jesus died on Calvary,
That from sin we might be free, Oh believe it! Oh believe it!
Jesus died for you and me, Oh believe it! —James R. Murray
