Today’s Bible Reading & Verse
God thunders marvellously with His voice;
He does great things which we cannot comprehend. Job 37:9
It is a coal from God’s altar must kindle our fire; and without fire, true fire, no acceptable sacrifice. – William Penn
Today’s Song Story
Come Down, O Love Divine
Bianco da Siena, who lived in Venice, wrote ninety-two hymns during the early 1400s, publishing them in a book entitled Spiritual Hymns. Four centuries later (1867), an English priest, Richard Littledale, discovered da Siena’s hymns, translated a number of them into English, and included them in a hymnal entitled The People’s Hymnal.
This hymn is a prayer –– an impassioned plea for God to come down from heaven to reside in our hearts and set our hearts afire with a holy flame. It prays that God will shine a glorious light to illumine our pathway. It hopes for hearts full of yearning for God’s grace –– something that can happen only when love creates a place for the Holy Spirit to dwell within our hearts.
As we sing this hymn today, let its prayer become your prayer –– a prayer for God to come into your heart ––to set your heart afire with a holy flame ––to illumine your pathway –– so that the Holy Spirit might live within you –– so that we might truly become God’s people.
