DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 13:1-14:22; Jer. 49:1-39; Hebrews 13:7-25

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8, KJV

“Dozens Homeless from Flooding.” “Five People Dead in Wake of Tornado.” Such events headlined by the media are termed “acts of God.” Where are the newspaper articles stating that the gorgeous sunset, or the much needed rain were acts of God? These we take for granted. And what about the supreme Act of God? Isaiah 53:4-5 points us to Christ who was “smitten of God” when “He was wounded for our transgressions” (KJV). You can take the rest of God’s gifts for granted if you wish, but if you avoid this supreme act of God you will be lost forever. Come to Him today. —D. Logan

Gone my transgressions and now I am free, All because Jesus was
wounded for me. —W. G. Ovens
