DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 16:1-17:19; Ezekiel 37:1-28; John 15:1-16

Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. 1 Pet. 3:15

Recently in a town near where we live, a young man collecting for a charity stepped up to me and asked. “Where are you headed?”. “I’m heading for heaven,” I replied, “and what about you?”. Momentarily he seemed taken aback and then replied. “I hope so, but just not as soon as you.” I was able to share with that young man why it is that I am going to heaven. May God help us to speak up today and tell others of His saving work in Christ Jesus. —Janet Fleming

Give me a vision of the lost, who walk the road to hell,
And grant me courage for today, those words of life to tell;
That neighbors, friends, acquaintances, and family may hear,
The message that can change their lives, and bring them hope and cheer. —Janet Fleming
