Numbers 4:1-49; Proverbs 1:1-33; Mark 14:1-26

I came down from heaven. John 6:42

Abraham Lincoln once had a conversation with a child which required him to stoop down to her. At the end of it he said to her, “When you grow up, you can say that Abraham Lincoln bent half– way to meet you”. There is a greater than Abraham Lincoln who stooped down all the way to bring blessing to mankind, not just as a result of His miracles but by the outcome of His death at Calvary. Sinners must stoop down in humility, confess their sin and receive Him as Saviour and Lord. —Brian Powlesland

He left His Father’s throne above,
So free so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race. —Charles Wesley
