Today Is Just in Time – “Whatever wreck your life might be, however nightmarish your circumstances seem, Jesus is ready to embrace you. His righteousness is ready to clothe you. The mighty wave of his mercy is growing higher and higher, soon to crash over your soul, if you would just turn, if you would but seek him. Would you?

In knowing Christ, we know One who is surpassing in excellence in His person and One who showers on us benefits which far surpass anything we may receive from this world.”
