Tonight was a great night of reflection around God’s Word (Romans 8 by Jonathan Philobes). We hope you were blessed with the music and our singspiration Here is the text we learned tonight from God’s Word and a song that we sang tonight with devotional thoughts:
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:31-37 (KJV)
Here is the song that we sung tonight we hope that you can use it for your personal meditation:
Come Thou Fount devotional thoughts: This poem is an amazing prayer of meditation towards God. When we think of all the blessings we have because of Jesus Christ; this demands our soul to praise God. The Love of God and the blessings that follow are built on the sure promises of God’s Word, the firm mount is the allusion to Jesus Christ who is the picture of the invisible God. Grace is that great gift that was given unto us, we look at the account of our sin and then see the credit of Jesus’ perfect blood applied, we are forever in debt because of the kindness of our Lord! We are like wondering sheep when it comes to the things of God, always walking away from our Shepherd always distracted with the things and the attraction to all the stuff the world offers…are you prone to wonder…Lord I feel it, I know that this describes me, I am so quick to forget the God who has given me everything. Are you bound with the goodness of God? Is the very simple goodness of our Lord so captivating to you that you are in step with the Spirit of God? That is what this verse is talking about, goodness that binds our heart with the very heart of God. Imprint on me the mark of your Spirit on my life, God I want to be a follower of you not just here on this earth but forever with You in your Kingdom!
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.
Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
