DAILY READINGS: Numbers 6:1-27; Proverbs 3:1-35; Mark 14:53-72

Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more. Romans 5:20

Even our righteous acts are like filthy rags in the eyes of God (Isaiah 64:6). Yet, no matter how sin has revealed itself in us, there is good news—the Gospel of the grace of God. On the cross the Lord Jesus paid the price for all our sins and whether great or few, God’s grace abounds more. Friend, you may have done great harm to yourself and others. Don’t despair. Trust Christ as your Saviour today and He will immediately forgive, change and welcome you as His own. —George Ferrier

Marvellous grace of our loving Lord, Grace that exceeds our
sin and our guilt! Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled. —J. H. Johnston
