Through the Word in 2020 / Jan. 19


We are reading the Bible through together this year, using the Discipleship Journal Reading Plan published by the Navigators. You can download it free of charge from: https://www.navigators.org/resource/bible-reading-plans/
Today’s 4 readings are: Matthew 8:1-13; Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 18:25-50, Genesis 41.
This, from Matthew 8:1-3

When Jesus says “I will”

No pow’r can intervene

Even hopeless lepers

Are instantly made clean

 

The blind, the deaf, the lame

In body, soul and mind

In Christ the Son of God

The fullest cure do find

 

No remnants of The Fall

Abide outside His pow’r

Though poisoned by our sin

He’ll cure us in His hour

 

When Jesus says “I will”

The heart may hope and rest

That when we’ve sought Him out

He’ll grant us Heaven’s best

 

So seek in Him dear soul

The cure for sin’s disease

He loves to say “I will”

To humble sinner’s pleas

 

When Jesus says “I will”

Because His blood was shed

The Father joys to raise

Foul sinners from the dead

 

Don’t wait a moment more

With all your guilty stain

Cry out to Christ the Lord

He’ll say “I will”, again.
