Feb 5 Genesis 32:9-32 TLH 444:4

[Commemoration of Jacob]

Fearful of the future, Jacob persists until the Lord blesses Him. God is not upset with such wrestling matches.

Feb 6 Deuteronomy 18:15-20 TLH 134

The forgiveness of sins in Christ may at first appear a small thing, but it ever conquers more and more hearts.

As God is concerned with saving the weak, so this concern is reflected in the actions of His believers.

Although the disciples were a considerable distance away, Jesus was well aware of them. Comforting, isn’t it?

God’s discipline at Babel prevented the people from going further in their sin. May He discipline us in love.

Feb 14 John 15:9-13 TLH 363:1-3

True love is sacrificial—as Jesus demonstrated when He offered His own life as payment for our sin.

Feb 16 Mark 9:2-9 WS 720

“ … they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.” Jesus stays with us too, glorious God though He is.

Feb 17 2 Corinthians 3:7-12 PS 50:1-6

Do you want to see something glorious? Examine the good news that Christ’s righteousness is yours.

By faith (not by works) we stand righteous before God, this righteousness being a free gift from Him.

Feb 19 Joel 2:12-19 PS 51

The repentance God works in us is not a mere outward show, but involves the heart’s cooperation too.

What can we give the One who sanctified us with His own blood? How about a sacrifice of praise from our own lips.

We say, “To God alone be the glory!”—but we short-circuit this when we discover ways to glorify ourselves instead.

Feb 23 Mark 1:9-15 TLH 61

Seven short verses, three major events (vv. 9-11; 12-13, 14-15). Consider how they all relate to Christ’s gospel ministry.

[Festival of St. Matthew]

Jesus not only made a tax collector into a disciple, but a sermon at Matthew’s table further told of His concern for sinners.

Satan, His temptations, and the world’s ruin are reversed by a single promise in v. 15 (see also 1 John 3:8b).

Feb 27 Genesis 22:1-18 PS 6

God provided a substitute sacrifice and Isaac’s life was spared, calling to mind a greater Substitute.

Feb 28 Matthew 16:21-23 TLH 142

Yet another temptation resisted by our Savior. Not once did He fail or falter in His journey to the cross.
