Weekly Memory Verse: March 12
Colossians 1:27 "To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Next Saturday we celebrate Saint Patrick's Day. As many of you know, I wrote a song using some of the words of Patrick, which you can listen to below.
I was fortunate to have this song put in the Congregational Church hymnal years ago, and last year I had a wonderful experience because of it.
I was at work and the pastor of a Congregational Church in Rockwood came to the building inquiring whether he could perform a worship service there. I referred him to the office number, and then decided to ask him if his church used the hymnal that had the song.
He said that he did, and was surprised to find that I had written it. He invited me to come to his church and teach it to his congregation. I did, and it was a great blessing. Months later I saw one of the congregants of the church and she said that they loved it and played it often.
It is a great privilege to put the words of this great Irish evangelist to music, and if you take the time to listen you'll find that he had nothing to do with green beer and pinches, but everything to do with Jesus, and being more like Jesus.
It is a prayer of holiness and full devotion to Christ, portraying in a nutshell the life he lived and the life he taught others to live. I hope you enjoy the song, but more than that, I hope it makes you dwell on our beloved Lord Jesus.
Today if you hear His voice, harden not your heart.
