DAILY READINGS: Gen. 13-14; Job 16:1-17:16; Matt. 8:1-27

For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you Psalm 86:5

What an encouragement this is: the Lord, in His goodness, is not reluctant but ready to forgive. None need despair, however deep his sins are, for He is plenteous in mercy. There are also no restrictions; the offer is unto all that call upon Him. “For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved‘” (Romans 10:13). —Reg. L. Jordan

Come away to Jesus, He is willing to forgive;
His love will shine around you every moment that you live.
—E. E. Hewitt
