TODAY'S HYMN AND BLESSING 11/16/2011

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

SPREAD THE SPARK OF HOLINESS TODAY!



Scripture:
1 Pet 1:16 - “Be ye holy; for I am Holy!


TODAY’S HYMN:
History: Words were written by W. D. Longstaff in 1882, and the music by George C. Stebbins in 1890. The inspiration for this hymn came from 1 Pet 1:16. Three verses with no refrain.

“ TAKE TIME TO BE HOLY”

1. Take time to be holy, Speak oft with the Lord;
Abide in Him always, And feed on His Word,
Make friends of God’s children, Help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing, His blessings to seek.

2. Take time to be holy, The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret With Jesus alone,
A biding in Jesus, Like Him thou shall be,
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

3. Take time to be holy, Be calm in thy soul,
Each tho’t and each motive Beneath His control,
Thus led by the Spirit To fountains of love,
Thou soon shall be fitted For service above.

TODAY’S BLESSING:
May God bless us and teach us to be patient and wait for the blessings that always arrive, and may we never tire of looking for them.
Bless the name of Jesus and give Him all praise!

    Love the Hymn. Too few people think holiness is a part of being a Christian these days.

    Praise the Lord, brother in Christ! For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee! I am reminded through your encouraging, heartwarming posts, that the more time I spend to behold Him and gaze on His beauty, the more He will be infused into me as my holiness and beauty! Thank you, Lord Jesus! We like to behold You today, and be filled with You! Thank You that You have made us partakers of Your divine nature. We can come boldly to Your throne of grace today and receive mercy and grace for timely help. Praise the Lord!
