DAILY?READINGS: Leviticus 5:14 to 6:7; Psalm 105; Acts 27:27-44

The Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

How wonderful that the apostle can describe himself as the direct and personal object of the Son of God’s eternal and redeeming love. Then remember that this is the portion of every sinner who turns to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance and faith. The Gospel that we are privileged to proclaim has at its centre a powerful and tender heart of love. May that immense love continue to comfort us and motivate us! —Mark Fenn

All of grace, yes, grace surpassing, such a portion to bestow;
But the love, all knowledge passing, grace has taught us now to know,
Love that bore the stripes and sorrow, love that suffered on the tree,
Love that shares the bright tomorrow with the loved ones, you and me.
—Thomas Henry Reynolds
