Do you hear
“Hark! The Voice of Jesus Calling”, Hymn 359 in our lesson study title for this week? Or,
Hymn 287, “Softly and Tenderly”? I heard
Hymn 361, “Hark! Tis the Shepherd’s Voice I Hear”.
Ezra and Nehemiah certainly heard God’s voice calling them.
These prophets were to lead the people, rebuild the sanctuary and walls, teach the people, and guide them:
Hymn 482, “Father, Lead Me Day by Day”,
Hymn 531, “We’ll Build on the Rock”,
Hymn 193, “Savior, Teach Me” and
Hymn 538, “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”.
The prophets spoke to the three kings, who listened: Cyrus, Darius and Artaxerxes. We hear this in
Hymn 413, “God Has Spoken by His Prophets”.
It is our responsibility (Thursday) to choose to follow God’s calling :
Hymn 623, “I Will Follow Thee”.
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.”
