This week’s cover letter is being written to the older generation of those who receive the Weekly SERMON.
In Psalm 71:18-19 we read, “Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to everyone that is to come. (19) Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!”
In Psalm 145:4 we read, “One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.”
When an old preacher was asked to give a sermon he said; "When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me. The only thing that would comfort was this verse:
"Jesus loves me this I know. For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak, but He is strong Yes, Jesus loves me….The Bible tells me so."
The old pastor stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best." Here for you now is a Senior version of JESUS LOVES ME:
Jesus loves me, this I know. Though my hair is white as snow.
Though my sight is growing dim, Still He bids me trust in Him.
Yes, JESUS LOVES ME. Yes, JESUS LOVES ME.
Yes, JESUS LOVES ME, for the BIBLE tells me so.
Though my steps are oh, so slow, With my hand in His I'll go,
On through life, let come what may; He'll be there to lead the way. (CHORUS)
When the nights are dark and long, In my heart He puts a song.
Telling me in words so clear, "Have no fear, for I am near." (CHORUS)
When my work on earth is done, And life's victories have been won,
He will take me home above; Then I'll understand His love. (CHORUS)
I love Jesus, does He know? Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day. (CHORUS)
This week, find an opportunity to reach out and touch someone with this powerful song.
Remember this: God's work, done in God's way, will never lack God's supply.
And also this: Faith makes all things possible…love makes all things easy.
