Sunday Scriptures 2Peter 1:3-11

His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble. 11 For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you.

Sunday Hymns - Blessed Fountain of Blood

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    It flows from Jesus’ side;
    And I have plunged my guilty soul
    Beneath its cleansing tide.

        Blessed fountain of blood,
        I have plunged ’neath its flood;
        And now its cleansing billows roll,
        Through all my happy soul.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    ’Tis streaming o’er my heart;
    Through all my soul its tranquil joy
    Enlivens every part.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    Whose virtue stands between
    A barren land of sin and shame,
    And fields of living green.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    Which gladdens all my life;
    It saves me now, oh, joy to know,
    From sorrow, sin, and strife.
Daniel O. Teasley, pub.1911
