Everybody Ought to Know

The sun is but a morning star. 
                               ~ Henry David Thoreau
 
 
 
Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.
                               ~ Ephesians 5:1-2
 
     There was a dear couple in a church I attended as a new Christian  They were what I considered to be an older couple, and they were so in love and very dear.  One Sunday, they stood up and sang this hymn.  The pastor’s wife played the piano like a country legend.   
     I heard the chorus and started thinking of Jesus in nature.  The names for Him Lily of the Valley, Rose of Sharon, Brightest Morning Star…each time I see these plants, or look into the sky, there He is.
Just wanted to share a bright moment for your day.  Sing it out church!
 
Because of Him,
Linda
Everybody Oughta Know
 
Everybody ought to know

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

He’s the lily of the valley
He’s the brightest morning star
He’s the fairest of ten thousand
Everybody ought to know.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

On the cross He died for sinners
And His blood makes white as snow
Loving, living, coming Savior
He’s the One you ought to know.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is
Who Jesus is…
