Genesis 49:1-33; Psalms 28:1-29:11; Matthew 27:1-26

I know that in me…dwelleth no good thing. Romans 7:18 Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15

Psychologists and sadly some preachers tell us we need a “good self-image”. God’s Word tells us He uses one who recognizes that he is “the chief of sinners”, “in whom there is nothing good”, and who sees himself as “less than the least of all the saints” (Eph. 3:8). These statements all applied to the apostle Paul—the greatest missionary of the New Testament. Oh to see myself in the light of Calvary, that my precious Lord may be seen to be everything. —David Croudace

Oh to be saved from myself dear Lord,
Oh to be lost in Thee,
Oh that it may be no more I,
But Christ that lives in me.—A. B. Simpson
