Close...

As I've said in the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today is SONday!  Our Lord's Day!

It's a day when we worship.  And, honour our Lord!

There is a hymn that I feel is important.  It's entitled, Close to Thee.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umEg3gUQOgc.  The lyrics are below.

Close to Thee

Thy my everlasting portion, more than friend or life to me,
All alone my pilgrim journey, Savior let me walk with Thee.
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
All alone my pilgrim journey, Savior let me walk with Thee.
 
Not for easy worldly pleasure, Nor for fame my prayer shall be,
Gladly will I toil and suffer, Only let me walk with Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
Gladly will I toil and suffer, Only let me walk with Thee.
 
Lead me through the veil of shadows, Bear me o'er life's fitful sea,
Then the gate of life eternal, May I enter Lord with Thee.
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
Then the gate of life eternal, May I enter Lord with Thee.

Just as we see/hear in the lyrics, we need to be close to our Lord. 

We need to walk with Him.

We need to gain eternal life.

We need to be close to Him, because we will toil and suffer... due to being sinful.

Even so, He loves us.  So very much.

Thinking of this, brought to mind, 1 John 4:10, "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

Herein is love... not that we loved God, but that He loved us... and sent His Son, to be the propitiation for our sins!

It's so wonderful that God loved us so much.  Even though none of us are perfect!

He provided for us, so that even though we are sinners, we will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Enter Heaven when your life ends here on earth.

How?  Do what was discussed, just now.  Trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).

Hallelujah!


Until next time...
