Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:16-17 ESV)
Hymn ELH 234:1,4 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.
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.
Christ, my Savior, forgive me and teach me through Your Word. Give me joy in the knowledge that all my sins are forgiven. Amen.
