DAILY READINGS: Esther 5:1-6:14; Malachi 1:1-2:9; Rev. 20:7-21:8

Fear not, little flock: it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32

Here we have God’s relationship with us referred to in three ways: as sheep, as children and as subjects. As our Shepherd He leads us in green pastures and by still waters restoring our souls in paths of  righteousness. As our Father He cares and disciplines us to conform us to the image of His Son. And as our King He reigns in us with justice and grace. What a God is ours. —Drew Craig

Great God of wonders, all Thy ways,
Display Thine attributes divine,
But the bright glories of Thy grace,
Above Thine other wonders shine. —Samuel Davies
