Flipping through the new quarterly, there are a number of titles that have the word ‘love’ in them – Love, to Be Loved; To Love God; He First Loved Us; To Love the Lord Your God; to name just a few. Hence, I believe a wonderful hymn to devote to as a theme will be
Hymn 349 – God Is Love. Our first Memory Text says “for God is Love”, 1 John 4:8. As the book of Deuteronomy is the book of the covenant, it would also be good to add
Hymn 347 – Built On the Rock as verse four tells us of God ‘Making with us His covenant”.
On Sabbath, our Memory Text gives us Jesus as our Rock –
Hymn 300 – Rock of Ages. The introduction to our week of study, then shares about Moses’ history lesson, repeated through the Bible –
Hymn 272 – Give Me the Bible.
Moses wished to serve the Lord (Sunday), and so may we:
Hymn 251 – He Lives,
Hymn 291 – We Have Not Known Thee,
Hymn 310 – I Would Draw Nearer to Jesus,
Hymn 311 – I Would Be Like Jesus and
Hymn 331 – O Jesus I Have Promised. We are then shown what substitution is, and how Jesus bore our sins:
Hymn 148 – O Love How Deep How Broad,
Hymn 281 – I Gave My Life for Thee and
Hymn 363 – Lord, Whose Love in Humble Service.
Monday gives us a firm reminder of our great Creator:
Hymn 93 – All Things Bright and Beautiful,
Hymn 565 – For the Beauty of the Earth,
Hymn 2 – All Creatures of Our God and King,
Hymn 92 – This Is My Father’s World and
Hymn 88 – I Sing the Mighty Power.
“God is to be glorified in His people” (Wednesday) is sung in
Hymn 581 – When the Church of Jesus.
Hymn 608 – Faith Is the Victory is the evidence given to us on Thursday. It is my prayer
O Brother, Be Faithful – Hymn 602 so we may meet in the Promised Land, very soon, as was the wish of Moses and the Children of Israel in Deuteronomy 2:11; 3:13.
We are bound for The Promised Land! Hallelujah!! Come, Lord Jesus come – very soon.
Blessings for a wonderful week ahead.

Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing, but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
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.”
