DAILY READINGS: Deut. 26:16-27:26; Amos 1:1-2:16; Luke 13:22-35

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9

These words were addressed to the church of Corinth in a period of extreme crisis. In chapter after chapter the apostle Paul had to deal with matters of faith and order that were seriously wrong there. His theme is the Lordship of Christ. The Lord’s Supper expresses it; the love of Christ exalts it; the power and wisdom of God enshrines it and the resurrection establishes it. How beautiful is the plan of God’s salvation. Have you received it? —Les Rainey

Faithful one, so unchanging; Ageless one, You’re my rock of peace;
Lord of all I depend on You, I call out to You, again and again.
—Brian Doerksen
