DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 15:1-33; Psalm 119:73-112; Mark 5:21-43

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. Romans 6:13

Before trusting Christ we focused our eyes upon ourselves and used our body for sin. Now we may live victoriously by solely focusing on Christ and offering ourselves to Him. We can use our feet to spread the gospel (Rom. 10:15) and use our hands for good works (Titus 2:14). With our lips we can consistently offer thankful praise to Him (Heb. 13:15) and with our mind bring our thoughts into subjection under Him (Rom. 8:5). He is worthy. —George Ferrier

Take my life and let it be, consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days, let them flow in endless praise. —Frances R. Havergal
