Flipping through the new quarterly, there are a number of titles that have the word ‘love’ in them – Love, to Be Loved; To Love God; He First Loved Us; To Love the Lord Your God; to name just a few. Hence, I believe a wonderful hymn to devote to as a theme will be
Hymn 349 – God Is Love. Our first Memory Text says “for God is Love”, 1 John 4:8. As the book of Deuteronomy is the book of the covenant, it would also be good to add
Hymn 347 – Built On the Rock as verse four tells us of God ‘Making with us His covenant”.
Oh the joy of being able to have the Everlasting Covenant which we find in
Hymn 469 – Leaning On The Everlasting Arms of our Lord Jesus.
God, through Moses, asked the people of Israel to turn their hearts to Him. We are now able to
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus – Hymn 290. To do this we can sing
I Will Early Seek the Savior – Hymn 539.
Sunday gives us the word “choice” many times in closing the study as does
Hymn 273 – Lord, I Have Made Thy Word My Choice.
“Seek Me and Find Me” says Monday’s study:
Hymn 224 – Seek Ye First the Kingdom and once again
Hymn 539 – I Will Early Seek the Savior. It is such a sad indictment of humanity that “over time, after a generation or so, the tendency to forget (Deut 4:9)” still continues today, including the Sabbath:
Hymn 388 – Don’t Forget the Sabbath. We are then reminded that “God’s grace is amazing”:
Hymn 108 – Amazing Grace, “He will forgive them and restore them”:
Hymn 299 – Forgive Our Sins As We Forgive as we are repenting as happens in
Hymn 280 – Come, Ye Sinners and
Hymn 296 – Lord, I’m Coming Home.
We ask with all our hearts to praise our God on Wednesday. This is found in
Hymn 323 – Oh, For A Heart To Praise My God so we are
Near to the Heart of God – Hymn 495. We are then able to
Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart! – Hymn 27 following repenting and learning to “obey Him” in
Hymn 590 – Trust and Obey
These hymns above are then reiterated in Thursday’s title of “Repent and Be Converted”.
We are bound for The Promised Land! Hallelujah!! Come, Lord Jesus come – very soon.
Blessings for a wonderful week ahead.

Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing, but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
