DAILY READINGS: 1 Samuel 11:1-12:25; Isaiah 51:9-23; 2 Cor. 12:1-13

In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6

God Himself should have been king over Israel, but rejecting His rule brought the nation into chaos. If your life is in a mess, the most likely reason is that you too have rejected God who gave His one and only Son to die for your sins. Not only did Christ die for you on the cross, but He rose again so that He could indwell you and give you a new life, delivering you from the turmoil in which you find yourself today. Put your trust in Him and find cleansing, forgiveness, peace and a life controlled by the Lord Jesus Christ. —David Croudace

Heartaches, broken pieces, ruined lives, are why You died on
Calvary; Your touch is what I longed for; You have given life to me.
—G. & B. Gaither
