Lionel Richie Sang a Song Today

Lionel Richie sang a song today: “… Jesus is love, He won't let you down…” Very true, but there is a qualification overlooked by the celebrity worshiping crowd. He won't let you down, if you are His own. Do you want to be His own?

“… If you confess with your mouth Jesus as [your] Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved “Romans 10:9.”

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live…. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:24-29).

In God is Our Trust

”Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave”!

Francis Scott Key, 1814)
