DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 7:1-51; Jeremiah 14:1-22; Ephesians 6:10-24

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment. Hebrews 9:27

The judgment is just as certain as death. Some people in terrible pain, or facing penalties, choose to commit suicide. They seem to think that it will end all. In fact, for those not born again, it is the beginning of far greater agony, with no escape, no end. God offers eternal life as a gift, but this offer terminates at death. Why leave it to the last minute? Come to Jesus, here and now. You will never regret it. —R. E. Harlow

Sinners, turn; why will you die? God, your Saviour,
asks you why; Christ, who did your souls retrieve,
Died Himself, that you might live. —C. Wesley
