Sabbath afternoon’s reading had the theme of ‘bless, blessed, blessing’, giving us our first hymn today,
Hymn 293, “Heavenly Father, Bless Us Now”, just as God blessed so many throughout our past history. We may continue further singing
Hymn 667, “Lord, Bless Thy Word to Every Heart”.
‘The God Who Hears’ (Sunday) is summed up in
Hymn 667, “O Thou Who Hearest”.
Hymn 272, “Give Me The Bible” will help us toward the understanding of ‘The Ten Commandments’ on Monday.
Hymn 273, “Lord, I Have Made Thy Word My Choice” shows how dear the Word of The Lord is to us. We are then shown the peace that is given by keeping the commandments in
Hymn 394, “Far From All Care”.
Returning our tithe to The Lord, shows our commitment in
Hymn 534, “Come, All Christians, Be Committed” and in
Hymn 639, “A Diligent and Grateful Heart”.
I feel certain that in ‘The Year of Jubilee’, the Israelites would have sung
Hymn 34, “Wake the Song”.
O sing a new song to the Lord
For marvels He has done;
His right hand and His holy arm
The victory have won.
With harp, and voice of psalms
Unto Jehovah sing;
Let trumpets and the echoing horn
Acclaim the Lord our King!
(verse 1 and 2 of Hymn 19, “O Sing a New Song to the Lord”)
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
