DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 11:1-43; Jeremiah 19:1-20:18; Philippians 4:2-23

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. John 5:24

What great news for sinners—spoken by the Son of God Himself! The promise is that through hearing His Word and believing on the One who sent the Lord Jesus, their sins will be forgiven; they will receive the gift of eternal life; they will be placed beyond the possibility of judgment, and will pass from death unto life. Are you one of those who has “heard His Word,” or are you still resisting His voice? Even as you read these words, may you trust the Lord Jesus as your Saviour and pass from death into life. —W. H. Burnett

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Verily, verily, message ever new, He that
believeth on the Son, ‘tis true, hath everlasting life. —J. McGranahan
