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”.
Oh the joy of being able to have the Everlasting Covenant which we find in
Hymn 469 – Leaning On The Everlasting Arms of our Lord Jesus.
The tree of life is something to look forward to in Heaven. We sing of this in verse 3 of
Hymn 453 – We Have Heard. It is because of the life Jesus gave for us all that in return we are able to sing
Hymn 185 – Jesus Is All the World to Me with verse 4 finalising with “Eternal life, Eternal joy”.
Tuesday extols the wonder of repentance and that God would restore the Israelites to the land. We are able to repent today as in
Hymn 280 – Come, Ye Sinners. It is then that we will serve the Lord. We may ask
Savior, Teach Me – Hymn 193 in verse 2. Because Jesus lives, I serve a risen Savior –
Hymn 251 – He Lives. The story continues with the blessings and protection of our God as in
Hymn 529 – Under His Wings.
There were wonderful promises given in Deuteronomy 30 just as we have today in
Hymn 518 – Standing on the Promises. We are reminded in the middle of Wednesday’s study that there is no cheap grace offered. We have
Marvelous Grace – Hymn 109.
Worship is our covenant relationship with God:
Hymn 6 – O Worship the Lord and
Hymn 83 – O Worship the King.
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.”
