DAILY READINGS: Judges 3:5-31; Isaiah 24:1-23; 1 Corinthians 3:1-23

Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. Acts 15:14
Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. Revelation 5:9

Having shed His blood for the sins of the whole world, the Lord is “taking out a people for His own name.” As sin increases I can either sit back in discouragement and say, “Oh no! What is this world coming to!”, or I can join my Lord, see people struggling and plunge right in with the lifeline of the gospel, to snatch some from the very gates of hell. Some from every tribe and tongue and nation will be there. Will some be there because I told them? —David Croudace

Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,
Chords that are broken can vibrate once more. —Fanny J. Crosby
