Daily Scripture:

Yet I have been the Lord your God ever since the land of Egypt; you know no God but me, and besides me there is no saviour. (Hosea 13:4) 

Daily Reflection:

Words written by the prophet Hosea over 700 years before Jesus was born. Christianity teaches us that Jesus (the Christ, the Messiah, the anointed one), that God is our Saviour. Yet over 700 years before he was born, people are told there is one God, and he is the Saviour.

God is there, through all the good times and through the tough times of our lives. We just need to remember that – and not just in the tough times….. when it is easier to call out to God for help. The people of Israel cannot have said, “We didn’t know; we weren’t told;” they were, many times. Neither can we say, “I didn’t know.” We cannot be untold something; so here is it, clear and simple: “God is your Saviour”. So give Him praise, and thank him. Today.
