DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 14:1-32; Psalm 119:1-40; Mark 4:21-41

He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names Psalm 147:4

Chapters of genealogies with all their names are recorded forever in God’s Word. Few of us enjoy reading them, yet they are individually important to God. Countless millions, all called by name, will be a part of the coming Kingdom—written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. All this has come to pass only because God in human form came down to earth to link you and me with Him, forever. Will you be a part of this heavenly scene? —Vernon Markle

I would make sure of heaven, I would enter the fold.
In the book of Thy kingdom with its pages so fair,
Tell me, Jesus, my Saviour, is my name written there? —F. M. Davis

Leviticus 14:1-32; Psalm 119:1-40; Mark 4:21-41

And they crucified him. Matthew 27:35

Consider afresh the cross-work of Christ today. The sin that needed it! The love that ordained it! The malice that wrought it! The patience that endured it! All are beyond our utmost thoughts. —Pete Smith

Oh, teach me what it meaneth
That cross uplifted high,
With One—the Man of sorrows;
Condemned to bleed and die! —Lucy Ann Bennett
