DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 8:1-9:31; Ezekiel 33:1-33; John 12:20-50

Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3
He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30
He (the Holy Spirit) shall glorify me. John 16:14

In contrast to human nature which tends to exalt self (we now have the word “selfie” in everyday use) the Lord Jesus is the only person in the universe who deserves to be magnified or glorified. Why? Because He was the only perfect person to walk this earth and because He came with the sole purpose of doing the Father’s will. What are you doing today to magnify Him? —W. H. G.

Rise my soul! Behold ’tis Jesus, Jesus fills thy wond’ring eyes;
See Him now in glory seated, where thy sins no more can rise. —J. Denham Smith
