DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 7:11-38; Psalm 107:1-43; Acts 28:17-31

Man shall not live by bread alone. Luke 4:4, KJV

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life…” John 6:35 Our forefathers lived without sugar until the 13th century,
without coal fires until the 14th, without potatoes until the 16th, without tea or coffee until the 17th, and without electricity until the 19th. Although mankind may live without such common commodities, we cannot afford to die without Christ who is the Bread of Life and the Living Water. —Arnot P. McIntee

Come, there’s bread in the house of Thy Father, and to spare,
Hear, O hear Him calling, calling now for thee;
Lo, the table is spread and the feast is waiting there,
Hear His loving voice calling still. —Charles H. Gabriel

Leviticus 7:11-38; Psalm 107:1-43; Acts 28:17-31

And they all forsook him, and fled. Mark 14:50
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

“Their family was at their side”. Many obituaries contain these words and it is wonderful to know that the dying person was comforted by having loved ones at their side as they approached death. When the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ suffered on that awful cross, no one was there to comfort Him. He was forsaken, even of God. He suffered for our sin all alone. What a wonderful Saviour we have. How we should worship and praise Him! —Mary Robins

Alone, alone, He bore it all alone:
He gave Himself to save His own,
He suffered, bled and died. Alone, alone. —Ben Price
