DAILY READINGS: Exodus 22:1-23:9; Psalms 64:1-65:13; Acts 12:1-25

And I have filled him with the spirit of God…to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass. Exodus 31:3-4

These verses speak of individuals who worked in gold under the leadership of Bezaleel and Aholiab in the construction of the Tabernacle (Ex. 31:1-9). They were specially called for this task and they were gifted for their call. Today the Lord has gifted evangelists, pastors and teachers in similar fashion for the building up of the church (Eph. 4:11- 12). Are you called for this special ministry and if so are you doing your work in building up the body of Christ? —K. C. Ung

First came the cornerstone, Jesus, our Lord;
We hear this mighty Rock call from the Word:
Build up my Church, says He, it cannot fail;
As long as you believe, you will prevail. —R. W. Adams
