Judges 17:1-18:31; Isaiah 36:1-37:7; 1 Corinthians 14:1-40

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our
transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12

Were we to travel north we would eventually reach the north
pole and keeping the same path, we would eventually reach the
south pole. There is a finite distance between the north and south
poles. In contrast, were we to travel east we could keep going
east and never reach any east pole. There is an immeasurable distance
between east and west and this is how the Lord describes
the indeterminable distance He has removed our transgressions
from us. —Brian Powlesland

I have lived with the Lord for a number of years,
That’s why I never have doubtings or fears,
For my sins are all hid in the depths of the sea;
They were cast away there, by the Man on the tree. —George Cutting

DAILY READINGS: Judges 17:1-18:31; Isaiah 36:1-37:7; 1 Cor. 14:1-40

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. Matthew 24:35

Born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God. 1 Peter 1:23

Your birth certificate is important. It confirms that you did indeed join the human race, and when, and where. But your
certainty of eternal life is more important, and more assured. Eternal life is assured by the mighty Word of God which cannot change or pass away. Your eternal life shall abide as long as God Himself shall stand. —Doug Kazen

Thy promise true my faith receives,
And claims it for its own.
My trusting heart with joy believes,
The covenant–keeping One. —F. J. N.
