But let us who are of the day sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love,
and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
For God did not appoint us to wrath,
but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:8-9
Hope is here, shout the news to everyone
It’s a new day, peace has come, Jesus saves
Mercy triumphs at the cross
Love is come to rescue us, Jesus saves
Hope is here what a joyful noise we’ll make
As we join with heaven’s song
To let all the world know that Jesus saves
Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves
Free at last, every debt has been repaid
Broken hearts can be remade, Jesus saves
Sing above the storms of life, sing through the darkest night
Your spirit lives in us
Sing it out to let all the world know
That Jesus saves
Raise a shout to let all the world know that
Rise and Shine
Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.
Your statutes are my heritage forever;
they are the joy of my heart.
Repentance is not merely a change of mind
but a radical change in one’s life as a whole that especially involves
forsaking sin and turning or returning to God.
Matthew 3:2 notes
Assuredly, I say to you,
I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine
until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
I closed my eyes and I asked God -
What are you missing from me?
In His voice, He said…
“His soul shall dwell at ease.”
In tribulation, misunderstanding, slander, in the midst of all these things,
if our life is hid with Christ in God, He will keep us at ease. We rob ourselves
of the marvelous revelation of his abiding companionship of God.
“God” is our Refuge” – nothing can come through that shelter.
My Utmost for His Highest
Even if I knew
that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
