DAILY READINGS: Deut. 7:12-8:20; Eccl. 9:11-10:20; Luke 8:40-56
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5
This chapter starts with a dark description of the lost estate of each one who is outside of Christ. But it ends with God indwelling each one who trusts Christ as Saviour. From start to finish, God’s mercy and love shine forth. Because of His great love toward us, He has saved us. Love is the basis and motivation for everything He has given to us and made us. Thank God for His infinite and unconditional love. —B. Crawford
Hark! the voice of love and mercy, sounds aloud from Calvary;
See, it rends the rocks asunder, shakes the earth, and transforms me.
