DAILY READINGS: Gen. 1:1-2:3; Job 1:1-2:10; Matt. 1

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17

Today, as we were chatting at the table about the tragic circumstances of some children, I made the comment to our visitors that many people don’t have a chance. One of our friends responded, “Some have a poor start, but everyone has a chance.” How true. The day of grace is still upon us and Jesus invites you to come, in repentance, to Him today. Trust Him for salvation and know His forgiveness and cleansing. You will have a new start. —J. Fleming

He died to make the way for you, so you might be forgiven
So you can know that you are on the road that leads to heaven.
—J. Fleming
