DAILY READINGS: Numbers 10:11-11:3; Proverbs 8:1-36; Jude 1:1-25

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

The headline read “Mom’s final act saves baby.” The heroic mother was pushing her baby’s stroller across an intersection when a car made an illegal turn. She pushed the buggy out of the way, but could not avoid the vehicle and was killed. The greatest act of love was at Calvary where the Lord Jesus died in your place and mine, paying the price of our sins. The apostle Paul said, “the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians. 2:20). —Arnot P. McIntee

Jesus has saved me—wonderful Saviour! Jesus has saved me—
I cannot tell how; But this I do know, He came, my ransom,
Dying on Calvary with thorns on His brow. —J. W. MacGill
