Singing with Inspiration – 3: The Unity of the Gospel

Our Sabbath afternoon introduction to this weeks’ lesson has:
Hymn 518, “Standing on the Promises”, and
Hymn 610, “Stand Like the Brave” ringing in my ears. To these we may add:
Hymn 618, “Stand Up! Stand Up for Jesus!”.
Martin Luther stood firm and as Ellen White says “his unwavering firmness was the means of emancipating the church, and beginning a new and better era.”

The study of unity this week brings a little-sung hymn to mind – a hymn that has unity throughout its lyrics:
Hymn 400, “I Come With Joy”.

We are reminded on Monday that we are to be ‘stripping away our confidence in ourselves and to have a faithful dependence on God instead’:
Hymn 517, “My Faith Looks Up to Thee”.

Hymn 320, “Lord of Creation”
has lyrics of freedom, which reflect on the theme of Tuesday’s lesson.

Acts 10:28 on Wednesday, has:
Hymn 606, “Once to Every Man and Nation”
echoing this Bible text and unpacking it further for us.

May you be refreshed as you travel on together, in unity, this week with:
Hymn 548, “Now Praise the Hidden God of Love” as your theme.
