DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 43; Psalms 20-21; Matt. 25:1-30

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.    Ephesians 2:8

It was April 14, 1912. Two men floated in the cold North Atlantic. They were within hailing distance and one who was wearing a life-jacket looked at his fearful friend and asked, “Are you saved, and on your way to Heaven?” The response came through chattering teeth to say, “No”. “Then take my life jacket and accept the Lord Jesus as your Saviour.” When the lists of the Saved and Lost appeared in New York, the willing donor was listed among the Lost—but only physically. The recipient of his life-jacket was among the Saved—but without Christ he was still spiritually lost. If you accept the Lord Jesus now, you will be eternally saved. —Arnot P. McIntee

Out of Christ without a Saviour, O can it, can it be?
Like a ship, without a rudder, on a wild and stormy sea.
—F. M. Davis
