There are a number of titles in this quarter’s lessons 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.
Sunday shows how Abraham believed God, and we sing this in
Hymn 11 – The God of Abraham Praise. Then, the theme of ‘everlasting’ is given in a number of our hymns:
Hymn 103 – O God Our Help (verse 3),
Hymn 117 – The Advent of Our God (verse 2),
Hymn 290 – Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (verse 2), and
Hymn 413 – God Has Spoken By His Prophets (verse 2).
Monday finalises with the thoughts of Israel needing to obey the Ten Commandments, just as we are to do today:
Trust and Obey – Hymn 590.
The Ten Commandments are given for a second time to Israel and we can sing of the Ten Commandments in
Hymn 447 – Long Upon the Mountains (verse 2).
With the ‘present truth’ given to us, we are ‘to embody that truth until Jesus, “the truth” Himself (John 14:6), was to come’ –
Hymn 213 – Jesus Is Coming Again!
Thursday instructs us about family – “the closest, tightest, and most loving of bonds”. We are blessed to have a small section in our hymnal that has hymns about family and home:
Hymn 650 – Our Father, by Whose Name,
Hymn 651 – Happy the Home That Welcomes You,
Hymn 652 – Love at Home,
Hymn 653 – Lead Them, My God, to Thee,
Hymn 654 – Lord, Bless Our Homes, and
Hymn 655 – Happy the Home.
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.”
