An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Choir of Three

(Rev 3:20 KJV)  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.

(Proverbs 5 also read)

The bulletin said “men’s choir”.  When they assembled it had three members.  Where I come from that is a trio but this is Texas.  That is unimportant.  They sang “Since Jesus Came into My Heart”.  It is an old stand-by that means a lot to people who grew up in churches that loved to sing.  As they began I was a bit “ho, hum”.  Then I began to listen with my heart as well as my ears.

The last few mornings I have been reading over the words to that song and they have been blessing me over and over.  God wants to meet us in our time of worship whether that be corporate or individual.  He speaks to us in a multitude of ways.  When I read the words and compared my hymnal with the one at church I found out mine had five verses as opposed to three.  That was an extra bonus.

So?  Open the ears of your heart and allow God to speak to you.  For us older folk that might mean being open to listening to new “stuff”.  To youngsters it would be just the opposite.  God speaks.  We must listen.
