We continue to consider why Jesus as the ultimate Prophet is worthy of our obedience, reverence, and diligence to enter the rest of faith. Hebrews 4:12-13 are some of the most beloved verses on the power of the Word, both Living and Written.
We begin by reading Psalm 1, reminding ourselves of the blessedness of the man who sinks his roots deeply into God’s Word. We respond in prayer and in the hymn “Morning Prayer”, setting our focus right.
The Old Testament reading is from Isaiah 55, where we read of the power of God’s Word to never return void. We then sing this Scripture together.
In the New Testament, we read the apostle Peter’s account of the living nature of God’s Word. From there, we intercede together, and cheerfully thank God with returned gifts, while singing “My Faith Looks Up To Thee.” Following this, we study Hebrews 4:11-13, and then respond with “May the Mind of Christ My Saviour”.
