DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 17; Psalm 55; Acts 9:32-43

And the Lord hath given a commandment concerning thee, That no more of thy name be sown: Out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile. Nahum 1:14

Although an earlier generation of repentant Ninevites experienced God’s mercy in a dramatic revival that spared the wicked city (Jon. 3:10), the next century witnessed Assyria’s destruction for their reversion to evil. The idols in which they trusted were cut off and the Almighty promised to bury their name. It is a sad fate in comparison to Abraham, who departed from the same region and had his name perpetuated and made great by God (Gen. 12:2).    —K. R. Keyser

My name is in the book of life, oh, bless the name of Jesus;
I rise above all doubt and strife, and read my title clear. —D. S. Warner
