DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 15:1-33; Psalm 119:73-112; Mark 5:21-43

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation… Hebrews 2:3a, KJV

The question is unanswerable, because escape is out of the question. Salvation far exceeds what was offered under the Law. The Law pointed out our sins, salvation takes our sins away! We have been offered so great salvation by so great a God delivering us from so great a death (Hebrews 2:3; Psalm 77:13; 2 Corinthians 1:10). Surely this salvation should not be neglected, or rejected, but accepted by all who hear of so great a Savior as Jesus our Lord. —Rex Trogdon

Oh, believe it! Oh, believe it! Christ has died upon the tree, That
from sin you might be free; Oh, believe it! Oh, believe it! Jesus died
for you and me, Oh, believe it! —John Ferguson

Leviticus 15:1-33; Psalm 119:73-112; Mark 5:21-43

Blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10:46-47, NKJV

Bartimaeus was told to be quiet, but he continued to call out to the Lord Jesus, the only One who could heal him. The Lord beckoned those nearby to call the blind man, which they did, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you” (v. 49, nkjv). Wherever there is a seeking sinner there will be a seeking Saviour, and those near to Christ have the joy of urging those being called to come and see. —W. A. H.

Oh! that all the blind but knew Him, and would be advised by me!
Surely would they hasten to Him, He would cause them all to see. —J. Newton
