1 Kings 3:1-28; Jeremiah 11:1-23; Ephesians 4:17-32

And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mark 1:11

These wonderful words show us what God the Father thought
of His Son. It is interesting to notice that this commendation from
the Father came before any sermon was preached or any miracle
performed by His Son. The Father loved the Son not for what He
said or did but for who He was! When I examine my life what do
I focus on? The things I do or say? Or is it who I am in Christ? Activity,
although important, is no replacement for a life that has the
fragrant character of Christ! —Sid Halsband

Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine.
Take all my will, my passion, self, and pride;
I now surrender, Lord—in me abide. —Edwin Orr
