Praise the Lord!

Communion with the Lord
Often in my quiet time, I feel I lack the words to express my praise to the Lord.  So here are some Scriptural expressions of praise to the Lord:

O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.  (Psa 95:1-2)

Your legs are pillars of marble set on bases of pure gold;

Your mouth is full of sweetness. And you are wholly desirable. (Son 5:10-16)

Your love is as strong as death, Its flashes are flashes of fire, The very flame of the LORD.

Many waters cannot quench your love!

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
