DAILY READINGS: Nehemiah 1:1-2; Daniel 11:21-45; Revelation 7:1-17

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. 1 John 5:21
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 1:21

When it comes to our salvation, we can never lose it because He keeps us, safely in His hand (John 10:28-30). When it comes to the enjoyment of our salvation we have two general rules—keep out, and keep in. Keep yourselves from idols. How? Don’t even mention their names (Ps. 16:4). Keep yourselves in the love of God. How? Think about it, learn about it, talk about it, sing about it, walk in it, live it, enjoy it, and share it. —Rex Trogdon

Oh, love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure, the saints’ and angels’ song. —F. M. Lehman
