Lectionary readings for today:

Rom. 10-13

John 9: 18-41

 

“All who call out to the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13

Linked to the Savior

train car

Two travelers, who fancied they were abundantly able to take care of themselves, entered a railway carriage when the train was being made
up and found comfortable seats. They had dropped into conversation, when a porter looked in and told them to go to another coach. “What is the matter with this coach?” they asked. “Nothing,” he grinned, “only it isn’t coupled, or joined on to anything that’ll take you anywhere.” That is the
trouble with many beautiful creeds, and theories – they sound good, but they do not take you anywhere. The soul that would journey heavenward must make sure of the coupling.

I am happy today and the sunshine bright,

The clouds have been rolled away;

For the Savior said, whosoever will?

May come with Him to stay.

Whosoever surely meaneth me.

Dear Lord, Thank you for my salvation and the reassurance that you have
called me to join you in Heaven. I am so glad that You surely meaneth me.
