DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 4:1-5:18; Jeremiah 12:1-17; Ephesians 5:1-21

I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved. John 10:9

One day a man rushed into a railroad station and breathlessly asked the ticket agent, “When does the 8:01 train leave?” “At 8:01,” the agent replied. “Well,” said the man, “it’s 7:59 by my watch, 7:57 by the town clock, and 8:04 by the station clock. Which am I to go by?” “You can go by any clock you wish,” said the agent, “but you can’t go by the 8:01 train, for it has already left.” If you have not come to Christ for salvation, do so today while the door is still open. He’s coming soon—don’t be left behind! —Wade LeBlanc

Be in time, while the voice of Jesus calls you, be in time. If in sin
you longer wait, you may find no open gate, And your cry be just
too late. Be in time. —Author Unknown
