1 Corinthians 10:7–11

Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. We must not put Christ1 to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, 10 nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come.

Hymn: TLH 396, st. 1-3: Oh, For a Faith That Will Not Shrink

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Oh, for a faith that will not shrink 
Tho’ pressed by many a foe; 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of poverty or woe; 

2. That will not murmur nor complain 
Beneath the chast’ning rod, 
But in the hour of grief or pain 
Can lean upon its God; 

3. A faith that shines more bright and clear 
When tempests rage without; 
That, when in danger, knows no fear, 
In darkness feels no doubt;
