“And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:39-40 ESV)
Hymn ELH 375:1,3 O Little Flock, Fear Not the Foe
O little flock, fear not the foe
Who madly seeks your overthrow;
Dread not his rage and pow’r.
What though your courage sometimes faints,
His seeming triumph o’er God’s saints
Lasts but a little hour.
As true as God’s own Word is true,
Not earth nor hell with all their crew
Against us shall prevail.
A jest and byword are they grown;
God is with us, we are His own;
Our vict’ry cannot fail.
Lord Jesus, thank You for doing the will of Your Father and for Your great love and mercy in saving me. Amen.
