Music To God's Ears


James 1:22
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

On Sunday mornings our recent messages
have been from the Book of James.
What a wonderful book full of wise counsel!
(And much to prick every conscience if we care about being more than hearers)

We all have in common the mercy that metes each new day...

and though our callings and circumstances vary...

(some days sweeter, cuter and tastier than others)

...we all are loved and will all give accountant to One God and Father of all.

Ephesians 4:6
One God and Father of all, who is above all, 
and through all, and in you all.

Not hearers only, Lord
Let the law of Thy Word
Be more than grace and truth outpoured
But leaves the heart unstirred

As we hear, Lord, I pray
We heed Thy Spirit’s woo
So everything we do and say
Will bring glory to You

Where love abounds until
Our Self is crucified
Content to trust Thy Word and will
With nothing else beside

If we ask, you will give
If we seek, we will find
If we knock You will come to live
In faith’s heart, soul and mind

Then hope and joy and peace
Become reality
As word and deed yield love’s increase
Not I, but Christ in Me

What music to God's ears
When His children obey
Then He, Who Is The Word appears
In what we do and say

What music to a parents 'ears'/eyes, when we see our children take
loving counsel to heart...
 how ever much more our Heavenly Father!

Psalm 100

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
