DAILY READINGS: Gen. 18; Job 21:1-34; Matt. 10:1-23

In that hour he healed many people of diseases and plagues. Luke 7:21

What if a doctor examined you and gave you the news that you were terminally ill? You are, spiritually! You were born with the congenital disease of sin, and it is fatal (Romans 6:23). No doctor, medicine, diet, philosophy, or religion can cure this plague. The Lord Jesus Christ is your only hope. If you repent and call on Him in faith, He will save you in that same hour. He alone has the power to cure you of sin and its deadly effect. Come out of denial, recognize your condition and need, and call upon the Lord. Time is running out. Do it now! —Carl Knott

Time is gliding swiftly by, death and judgment draweth nigh,
To the arms of Jesus fly, be in time. —Charles H. Mason
