DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 39; Psalms 92-93; Acts 23:12-35

The land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I understood not. Psalm 81:5
When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob, from a people of strange language. Psalm 114:1

The children of Israel lived in Egypt for generations. It seems impossible that the language of the Egyptians was still strange to them. They surely should have learned to act and speak as the “nationals” yet obviously they kept their own tongue and anything else was still strange. Today God seeks believers who will be in this world but not of it—Christians who will remember that the people of this world are in opposition to God. We are ambassadors in a foreign country. Let’s live like it. —Ken Gross

We have a home above, from all defilement free;
A mansion which eternal love prepared our rest to be. —Henry Bennett
