Exodus 21:1-36; Psalms 62:1-63:11; Acts 11:19-30

When he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. Hebrews 1:3

Flooding extensively damaged our house. Although we hired a professional to do the repair work, I still felt nervous every time it rained. I shared my concerns with a very knowledgeable local developer, hoping that he could tell me if the issue had been properly resolved. To my surprise, he wasn’t interested in how the problem had been fixed. “Who did the work?” he wanted to know. When I named the man, the expert just smiled: “If he fixed it, it will be done right”. What a comfort to know our eternal security rests in the One who has done the work—the Lord Jesus Christ Himself! —Lynn Shatford

Thy work alone, my Saviour, can ease this weight of sin;
Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God, can give me peace within.—H. Bonar
