Within all of God’s rich blessings in Jesus (Eph. 1:3-14), and through the power of His indwelling Spirit (Eph. 5:18), God’s people are to ever be “…addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always…” (Eph. 5:19-20). Even as we’ll be singing praises throughout eternity (Rev. 5:11-14), God would have us train our voices now to sing of His glory.
This coming Lord’s Day, we’re planning to learn a new hymn for us, O Fount of Love (see also the lyrics). In preparation for our gathering, please familiarize yourself with this hymn. The lyrics extol the lavish love and grace God has given in Christ, and the resulting joy every believer possesses. All for the glory of God alone – from whom, through whom, and to whom belongs all praise!
Beloved, may the Lord strengthen and encourage your faith in Him, and the glories of His all-sufficient blessings in Christ. Myself and the other elders continually pray for you to this end.
In His great love and grace,
