The world lies beaten at your feet.
Oh God, we confess we’re beat.
If we must die, raise us up
To drink of heaven’s cup.
The world we know is banished
Our normal life has vanished.
Lord, we call your name.
Nothing else helps to sane.
Oh God save us from earthly ends
But Lord remember all your friends
If death is now and life no more,
We beg to land on Heavens’ shore.
Brenda J Wood 2020
Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers… You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood, our hiding place.” (Isaiah 28:14-15, NIV)
Friends, this is not the time to ignore the call of the living Jesus on your life. Confess your sins, call on Jesus to forgive them, and to come into your life. Accept the gift of salvation and the Holy Spirit who has come to live in you.
Prayer- Lord we accept your words into our hearts today. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone (Jesus!) for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. Amen.
