DAILY READINGS: Deut. 17:1-18:8; Obadiah 1:1-21; Luke 11:14-36
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son… Romans 5:10
These three verses describe us in three desperate situations. Yet one Saviour is sufficient for all. We were without strength, helpless; Christ died to be our Helper. We were still sinners; Christ died to be the Healer of our sin-sick souls. We were enemies of God; Christ died to be our Friend and reconcile us to God. —Rex Trogdon
Hallelujah! What a Saviour! Hallelujah! What a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end. —J. Chapman
