We open our singing this Sabbath with the greatest of leaders being in
Hymn 619, “Lead On O King Eternal”. We then look to Ezra and Nehemiah and find that they were very faithful to God:
Hymn 602, “O Brother, Be Faithful”. Their leadership is reflected in
Hymn 653, “Lead Them, My God, to Thee”. To be faithful, these men knew the Word of God:
Hymn 274, “O Word of God Incarnate” and
Hymn 273, “Lord, I Have Made Thy Word My Choice”
On Tuesday, Nehemiah had the people do their part by being ready to fight:
Hymn 613, “Fight the Good Fight”. Still today, we need to say
“My Soul, Be on Thy Guard”, Hymn 605 so that we might
“Stand Like the Brave”, Hymn 610 as
“We Are Living, We Are Dwelling”, Hymn 617 in a grand and awful time.
On Wednesday we find Ezra and Nehemiah “had a vision of where they wanted the people of God to be”
Hymn 547, “Be Thou My Vision”. Nehemiah then goes on to encourage the people to “do what was right and stand up boldly for God”
Hymn 618, “Stand Up! Stand Up for Jesus!”.
God’s blessings as you share The Reason for This Festive Season, our Lord Jesus.
