Jesus Calls Us
Jesus calls us o'er the turmult
Of our life's wild, restless sea;
Day by day His sweet voice soudeth,
Saying, Christian, follow Me!
Jesus calls us -- from the worship
Of the vain world's golden store;
From each idol that would keep us --
Christian, dost thous love Me more?
In our joys and in our sorrows,
Day of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures --
Dost thous love Me more than these?
Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Saviour, may we hear Thy call;
Give our hearts to Thy obedience;
Love and serve Thee best of all!
How many people are so wrapped up on consumerism these days that it has become their god. They must have the latest plasma TV or the newest car and as a result do not (or ignore) the sounds of Jesus calling. They don't want to know Him as he would interrupt their desire for more. Its all about having and wanting more, a simple life is no longer fashionable.
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.
1 Chronicles 16:11 (KLV)
