DAILY READINGS: Numbers 28:1-31; Proverbs 24:1-34; Luke 2:1-21

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36 

And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. John 17:3

What exciting words revealing to us Jesus Christ, the Source and Giver of eternal life! Amazing grace available for everyone
irrespective of race, culture, or language! It cannot be earned or attained by merit. It is gained only by faith, receiving the
gift He has provided through His death on the cross. Will you become the possessor of eternal life today? —Jim Paul

Whoever receiveth the crucified one, whoever believeth on
God’s only Son, A free and a perfect salvation shall have,
for He is abundantly able to save. —E. A. Hoffman

Numbers 28:1-31; Proverbs 24:1-34; Luke 2:1-21

Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Psalm 119:140

The Word of God is absolutely pure, free from any kind of distortion, error or contradiction. It also has a purifying effect upon those who read it prayerfully, regularly and systematically. Many shy away from reading it because it can be painful as it draws attention to our sins, failures and disobedience. However, it can bring washing and cleansing to us as we embrace its message and surrender to its truth through faith in Jesus Christ. —Paul Young

Purify my heart, cleanse me from within,
And make me holy.
Purify my heart, cleanse me from my sin,
Deep within. —Brian Doerksen
