DAILY READINGS: Numbers 5:1-31; Proverbs 2:1-22; Mark 14:27-52

For all have sinned, and come short (missed the mark) of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

In Adam the root, trunk and branches of humanity have been corrupted. As Henry Law said “All generations were in his loins.” So man, in God’s sight, needs more than mercy or forgiveness, he needs God to deal with the very root of sin and procure clearance before God’s own holiness. That is what the death of Christ has accomplished. —Drew Craig

Settled forever, sin’s tremendous claim,
Glory to Jesus, blessed be His Name,
No partway measure doth His grace provide,
Finished the work was, when the Saviour died. —E. G. Taylor
