MORNING

The life of the flesh is in the blood: and I
have given it to you upon the altar
to make an atonement for your
souls: for it is the blood that
maketh an atonement for the soul.

B EHOLD the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.--The blood of the Lamb.--The precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.--Without shedding of blood is no remission.--The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

By his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.--Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

LEV. 17. 11. John 1. 29.--Re. 7. 14.--
1 Pe. 1. 19.--He. 9. 22.--1 John 1. 7.
He. 9. 12.--He. 10. 19, 20, 22. 1 Co. 6. 20.


EVENING


Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then
would I fly away, and be at rest.

I T came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.

Job spake, and said, Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul; which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures?--Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour.--In all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

PSA. 55. 6. Jon. 4. 8. Job 3. 2, 20, 21.--
Ps. 34. 19. John 12. 27.--He. 2. 17, 18.

GOD'S BIBLE NAMES 5/29
"A RANSOM"

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

"A RANSOM for many!" Here Christ is set forth as the penalty for the sins of the world. As sinners under the judgment wrath of God, He took our place and paid the penalty and the price of our deliverance with His Own Blood. Listen to the drops of Blood as they fall from hands and feet and wounded side! They Voice the Words, "The ransom price for my sins and for the sins of the whole world." Would that men everywhere would believe it and receive it. How dear, how precious is He to us, washed clean in His Blood and freed forever from the punishment due us.

Lord, may our ransomed souls well up in praise to Thy glorious Name! Amen.

DAILY THANKSGIVING

IMAGINATION:

Lord, thank You for our imagination.

I realize there are few things which have the potential of getting us in trouble with You more, but on the other hand, no human characteristic has more Divine potential, either!

Our hearts can MAGNIFY whatever we are FOCUSED upon. And in this, Lord, I pray you will keep me Facing (Right-with) You!

Slipery Slope!

Careful, if you think you stand! ALL slopes lead DOWN. And slipping is a simple matter a gravity.

To become enamored, or fixated, or mesmerized - is to become distracted from reality. In certain circumstances, this can be very dangerous. And there are many spiritual situations which illustrate this.

Regardless how beautiful, or Holy or True - if a mortal ever forgets God's Warnings, and the spiritual sobriety and watchfulness Jesus admonishes each of us about - He makes it clear we can and will be deceived (and might have our Crowns STOLEN from us!). Souls which blithely (carelessly) disregard God's determined Instructions should be ashamed to resent the inevitable consequences - after they have been Warned.

But have folks been Warned - truely? (Yes, and ..) No - not so-to-speak. So few have HEARD Christ, that most haven't the foggiest notion how haphazardly they approach their doom. Who wants to hear warnings when they are busy partying? If they will not Hear God - why would they pay attention to His Servants?

But "they" are not my concern - I am. I need to pay closer attention - lest I should fall! After all, there is precious little any of us can do for "them" - when "they" will not honor God. When I get distracted, I forget. When I forget, I lapse back into my carnal default - my flesh. And when I do this I sin (again) against The One I Love more than my own life! This I do not want to do.

It would be a little thing if my soul were lost - after all, it was lost before I was Converted. But the really GREAT thing would be if I were to LET GOD SAVE ME! To do this, I must pay attention to Him!

There is beauty - and wonder - and mystery, yes. But there is also duty and loyalty and the Work of Election to tend to. God did not Call me to go on blathering mindlessly. He wants me to sober up to FOCUS on Him.

God help us to KEEP and GUARD our hearts, as FOCUSED on You!

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)




NEVER GIVE UP

Never be sad or desponding,
If thou hast faith to believe.
Grace, for the duties before thee,
Ask of thy God and receive.

Refrain

Never give up, never give up,
Never give up to thy sorrows,
Jesus will bid them depart.
Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
Sing when your trials are greatest,
Trust in the Lord and take heart.

What if thy burdens oppress thee;
What though thy life may be drear;
Look on the side that is brightest,
Pray, and thy path will be clear.

Refrain

Never be sad or desponding,
There is a morrow for thee;
Soon thou shalt dwell in its brightness,
There with the Lord thou shalt be.

Refrain

Never be sad or desponding,
Lean on the arm of thy Lord;
Dwell in the depths of His mercy,
Thou shalt receive thy reward.

Refrain

Resentment is cultivated, cultured & clung to, to defy Repentance!

'SOUL FOOD' - an audio-book by G.D. Watson - Ch. 28 of 32

Chapter 28 - "CLIMAX OF SORROW"
-- G.D. Watson lived in England, in the early part of the 1900's --




In one of Miss Havergal's letters, she calls attention to the striking climax in Exodus 3:7, in which God speaks of the notice He takes of all His people's troubles; "seen their affliction," "heard their cry," and "knows their sorrows." There are some calamities that are visible, such as slavery, scourging, fire, death, disease, poverty, old age, loneliness, malformation of body, etc. Such afflictions appear to the eye, and from the tendor-hearted call forth sympathetic tears and efforts of relief. Such afflictions are easily recognized and comprehended, and the great mass of mankind never seem to apprehend any affliction beyond those of visible troubles.

Then there is a second degree of trouble, which exists mainly in the soul or mind, in the sensibilities, the affectional nature, the thoughts and memory. Even when there are no outward marks of calamity on person or property visible to the eye, there may still be trouble that shakes and shatters the whole mental frame, causing piercing cries and burning tears. That muffled moan, that soft sob, that pitiful wail, those hot tears, have historics behind them; like the round sea waves that break their hearts in moans on the shore, they have come from some distant storm far away on the sea of life. But still such sorrows can be told; they can be described in language and comprehended by the understanding. They belong to that region of our nature which can be expressed.

Then there is a third degree of sorrow which lies away down in the immortal spirit, taking hold of the very fountains and springs of our being, so overpowering all the moral and mental and nervous powers as to be beyond all expression, either to the eye or in words. These sorrows are like those great vibrations at the bottom of the ocean - never reported to eye or ear; like the million-fold heat which melts the center of the globe, unknown to those who walk above it. Now, the infinitely loving Father sees all the affliction which can become visible, hears all the cries that can express woe or trouble, and then, in the great depths of sorrow unseeable and unutterable, His tender, all-knowing heart takes it all in. In the nature of things, the love and sympathy of the best saints on earth go only a short ways; but the infinite heart of Jesus travels on and out and down to take in every form of pain and sorrow. His precious, healing blood can spread its cleansing and soothing power through body, soul, and spirit, to the last fibre of our being. For every unspeakable sorrow in human experience, there is an unspeakable fullness of comfort, peace, and joy in the blessed Holy Spirit; for when God said, "I know their sorrows," it was not merely to tell His omniscience, but to affirm that His omniscience was all engaged to deliver and save, and heal the sorrow.
