[Jesus said] “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it.” (Luke 11:28 EHV)
Hymn ELH 234 We Have a Sure Prophetic Word
We have a sure prophetic Word
By inspiration of the Lord;
And though assailed on ev’ry hand,
Jehovah’s Word shall ever stand.
By pow’rs of empire banned and burned,
By pagan pride rejected, spurned,
The Word still stands the Christian’s trust
While haughty empires lie in dust.
Lo, what the Word in times of old
Of future days and deeds foretold
Is all fulfilled while ages roll,
As traced on the prophetic scroll.
Abiding, steadfast, firm, and sure
The teachings of the Word endure.
Blest all who trust this steadfast Word;
His anchor holds in Christ, the Lord.
Heavenly Father, help us to listen to Your Word above all else, reminding us that all authority in Heaven and on earth belongs to You alone. Give us courage to speak the truth in love and the will to follow where You lead. In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
