DAILY READINGS: Numbers 18:1-32; Proverbs 15:1-33; 2 Peter 2:1-22

Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. 2 Corinthians 13:5

It is easy for a young person who has had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home to rest on the faith of his/her parents and yet not know the Lord in a personal, life-changing way! Such faith will not stand. Eventually life will force you to stand alone and make your own decision regarding Christ and your relationship to Him. Only Christ can satisfy the deepest longings of the heart. Before you drift away into a world of sin that will never satisfy, turn to Christ. Humbly trust Him as your Saviour and commit your life completely to Him. —David Croudace

Now none but Christ can satisfy, no other name for me,
There’s love, and life, and lasting joy, Lord Jesus found in Thee.—B. E

Numbers 18:1-32; Proverbs 15:1-33; 2 Peter 2:1-22

When the even was come, they brought unto him many…and (He) healed all that were sick. Matthew 8:16

This verse speaks of wonderful miracles. Many were healed. But the number was limited. Limited by the number of sick that “they brought”. I wonder if any of them later said “If only we had brought more”. Hopefully we won’t look back with regret and say the same thing in relation to how often we made an effort to share the gospel with others. He has commissioned us to go (Matt. 28:19). Let us do just that. —Ken Gross

We’re saved to tell others of the Man of Galilee.
Saved to live daily for the Christ of Calvary.
Saved to invite them to His salvation free.
We’re saved by His blood for all eternity. —A. Woolsey
