Are you prone to wander? The Israelites were. I am.
How do we keep ourselves from wandering away from God?
Keep clear of sin, cleansing ourselves from everything that can defile us – body or spirit.
We need to strive toward complete holiness because we fear God.
Three years after hearing a haunting sermon, Robert Robinson gave his heart to Christ. He soon entered the ministry in Norfolk, England. While preparing his Pentecostal Sunday sermon, 23-year-old Robert wrote this hymn.
Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
It was a prayer that the Holy Spirit would flood into our hearts with streams of mercy and enable us to sing God’s praises and remain faithful to Him. The hymn has been a church favorite since that day.
in 1790, 54-year-old Robinson was invited to preach for Dr. Joseph Priestly in Birmingham, England. Just hours before his sermon, Robert died quietly in the night.
What a spectacular hymn we have to sing today because of Robert Robinson! On this spectacular Sunday, let’s meditate on these final lines of the hymn as we thank our Heavenly Father for sealing our hearts.
Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander; Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.
