DAILY READINGS: Judges 8:1-35; Isaiah 29:1-24; 1 Corinthians 8:1-13

But all His acquaintances, and the women who followed Him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things. Luke 23:49, NKJV 

A department store near us recently held its “Grand Opening.” Thronging crowds waited 10 to 12 hours to be first inside. Through His substitutionary death on Calvary, Jesus opened wide the gates of heaven, yet so many have no interest and stand afar off. God loves us and is not willing that anyone should perish. He offers salvation freely to anyone who will receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Will you accept His offer today? —Jerry Proctor

Salvation, salvation vast, full and free:

Who was slain on Calvary. —Unknown
