DAILY READINGS: 1 Sam. 2:1-36; Isa. 44:24-45:25; 2 Cor. 5:11-6:10

For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it. Isaiah 45:18 , NKJV

Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:22, NKJV

In verse 18, the Lord is described as the Creator of heaven and earth, evidencing His majesty, power and wisdom. In verse 22, He is shown as the Saviour, “Look to Me, and be saved,” evidencing His grace, love and compassion. He alone is both all-powerful and all-loving. He gives an invitation that carries a promise, but is there not a warning, too? “There is no other.” There is no other way, there is no other Saviour. —Reg. L. Jordan

No other song have I to sing but Jesus;
No other theme but Christ and Calvary. —John W. Peterson
