In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:10, KJV

If God were to close His hand on your breath today, where would your soul be? If you have trusted the Lord Jesus as your Saviour, it will be well. “Absent from the body, and…present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8, KJV). If not, it will be separation from God for all eternity. Put your trust in Him today. —E. MacLelland

Eternity! But Jesus died—Yes Jesus died on Calvary;
Behold Him thorn-crowned, crucified,
The spotless One made sin for thee.
O sinner haste! For refuge flee—He saves, and for eternity.
