10/14/11: I was reading in Ephesians 1 for my quiet time with the Lord this morning concerning every spiritual blessing we have in Christ Jesus. We are called and predestined to be holy and blameless in Christ Jesus. We were bought back for God via the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for our sins, and we were forgiven of our sins so that we don’t have to pay the penalty for sin. We were sealed in Christ with the promised Holy Spirit who dwells within our hearts, and who gives us wisdom, revelation, knowledge and understanding of the things of Christ and his word. And, we are included in Christ via faith in Jesus and what he did for us in dying for our sins. Jesus Christ is calling to his church in a still small voice and with gentle prodding, reminding us of all that he has given us and done for us so that we will wake from our slumber, hear his voice, turn from our sins and follow him with our lives. Will you hear him calling? Muted Trumpet / An Original Work / October 14, 2011 Softly He speaks gently to us, Giving us His messages, and He waits patiently for us to Respond to His words. Will you listen to Him speaking? Will you waken from your sleeping? He is calling; hear Him whisper His truth unto you. Jesus speaks His words unto us, So that He might live out through us, Giving light to all who need Him, So they can obey. He gave His life to die for us, So that from sin He would free us To walk humbly in obedience Unto Him each day. Hear the trumpet clearly calling. He died to keep us from falling. Won’t you listen; heed His call to Turn to Him today? Hasten to Him calling to you. Turn from sin and follow Jesus. He loves you so much He gave you Life eternally.
