DAILY READINGS: Gen. 38; Psalms 15:1-16:11; Matt. 21:33-22:14

Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:22, NKJV

Years ago, on a snowy winter Sunday morning in England, a young boy took his mother’s advice and went to a Primitive Methodist Chapel. Because of the weather, the minister hadn’t shown up. A “layman” from the little congregation took his place and expounded repeatedly on the above verse. Addressing the visitor he said: “Young man, look to Jesus Christ. Look! You have nothing to do but to look and live.” Charles Spurgeon looked and was saved. —E. MacLelland

Life is offered unto you, Hallelujah! Eternal life your soul shall have,
If you only look to Him, Hallelujah! Look to Jesus who alone can save.
—William A. Ogden
