34. CONSTANTLY ABIDING
There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
A peace it can not take away;
Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
I’ve a peace that has come there to stay!
Je…..sus is mine;…
He never leaves me lonely,
Whispers, O so kind
“I will never leave thee,”
Jesus is mine.
All the world seem’d to sing of a Saviour and king,
When peace sweetly came to my heart;
Troubles all fled way and my night turn’d to day,
Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!
This treasure I have in a temple of clay,
While here on His foot-stool I roam;
But He’s coming to take me some glorious day,
Over there to my heavenly home!
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
