Today's Bible Verse

Acts 20:24

“But I make no account of [my] life [as] dear to myself, so that I finish my course, and the ministry which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the glad tidings of the grace of God.”

Encouraging Words

The teaching of grace sets aside in our spirits the self-importance of nature, and thus delivers us from many sorrows. Nine-tenths of the troubles, heart-burnings, and personal jars which disturb and distress the children of God arise from a self-importance which is easily offended, and are kept alive by a self-importance which will not take a low place and confess its ungracious acts and words. If we lack the grace of God and its blessed teaching, we need not be surprised to find roots of bitterness springing up to trouble and defile us.

Today's Hymn

Hymn 442, Verse 2

Blest Spirit of the Father,
Thou in the inner man
Dost strengthen us with power,
The realms of bliss to scan;
To know Christ's love which passes
The range of human ken:
Be filled to all God's fulness -
What blessedness for men!
