DAILY READINGS: Esther 1:1-22; Zechariah 11:1-17; Revelation 18:1-24

Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!” Mark 2:12, NKJV

How true! Nobody had lived like the Lord and nobody would live like Him ever again. Observers saw the wonderful miracles He performed and heard the tremendous words which He spoke. What a sublime privilege. We too one day will have the same privilege to see Him and hear Him. What shall we say when we see Him face to face? Surely we too will glorify God as they did. —John M Clegg

O what shall we feel in Thy presence when first,
The visions of glory upon us shall burst!
Since now our soul longeth and seeketh for Thee;
O when, blessed Saviour, Thy face shall we see? —E. Grimley
