“The Church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord”
– Rev. Samuel John Stone
It's not a method or a denomination, but Christ alone.
I remember being in college, studying Hymnody. Not really my favorite subject. But, oh, the deep wells of theology, faith, and passion!
One of the hymns that grew on me was The Church's One Foundation.
The Church's one Foundation The Choir of King's College Cambridge Tune - "Aurelia" by Samuel Sebastian Wesley Lyrics - Samuel J. Stone From the album "Essential Hymns" Decca 2006 Lyrics: The Church's one foundation Is Jesus Christ her Lord; She is His new creation By water and the Word: From heav'n He came and sought her To be His holy Bride; With His own blood He bought her, And for her life He died.
At first, I didn't like it. Then I grew to appreciate the text. And then the entirety.
Take a minute to enjoy this incredible recording and ask God to speak deeply to you about the foundation of the Church. Is there anything about your life, family, or ministry that should change in light of what He's revealing to you?
Thank God for what He's showed you and ask Him if there's anyone else you should share this with.
