DAILY READINGS: Gen. 40; Psalm 18:1-29; Matt. 23

You shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21

In the genealogy of the Lord Jesus, there are three outstanding leaders. Abraham led the way out of idolatry. David brought his people into supremacy over the nations. Zorobabel led his people out of Babylonian captivity. But neither Abraham nor David nor Zorobabel could save his people from their sins. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12, KJV). The Lord Jesus can save you today. —Neil Dougal

Jesus is calling the weary to rest— Calling today, calling today;
Bring Him thy burden and thou shalt be blest, He will not turn
thee away. —Fanny J. Crosby
