DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 29:38 to 30:10; Psalm 78:1-31; Acts 17:16-34

And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him.    Isa. 59:16
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. Hebrews 10:12

In Israel’s day the prophet described God looking upon earth and seeing no man who loved truth, righteousness and judgment. Thus no one had the desire or capacity to intercede. So God did it Himself. It reminds us of our lost, sinful condition. There was no man that could save us from hell until the Lord Jesus Christ interceded. God stretched out His own arms on the cross and paid the price for our sins. He is our salvation. He is our hope. There is no other. Friend, trust Him today. —George Ferrier

O boundless salvation! Deep ocean of love,
O fullness of mercy, Christ brought from above. —W. Booth
