Gospel Thread - OT:

Today's reading continues the explanation of the levitical sacrifices and offerings, previously discussed.

Gospel Thread - NT:

Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God."

Mark 3:11 (NIV)

Even the demons knew the truth of Jesus' identity. They recognized that He was God, but they did not understand that He was the Messiah who was to come. They recognized His divinity, but they did not understand His plan.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Psalm 37:5-6 (NIV)

"Commit your way to the Lord" and "trust in him" are another way of saying, "accept as Lord and Savior" - it is through these two that one is saved, and it is through these two that God imparts righteousness to the believer.
