DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 45; Psalms 23-24; Matt. 26:1-30

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.     Genesis 1:3
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts.    2 Corinthians 4:6

The first thing God did when He created the earth was to speak light into existence. Without light there could be no life. Life is dependent on light. So too in the regeneration of sinners, the light had to shine first. What a great day when the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ shone on us! It brought life to our darkened hearts. Has He shone in your heart? Open your heart to Him today.    —Sid Halsband

At the Cross! At the Cross! Where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away.
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day. —Isaac Watts
