You Have Come to Mount Zion
Date : 2018-09-12
Speaker : Paul Naumann
Hebrews 12:18, 22-24
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest . . . 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Hymn: LSB 648, st. 1,4 :
Glorious Things of You Are Spoken
1. Glorious things of you are spoken,
Zion, city of our God;
He whose word cannot be broken
Formed you for His own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake your sure repose?
With salvation’s walls surrounded,
You may smile at all your foes.
4. Savior, since of Zion’s city
I through grace a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in Your name.
Fading are the world’s vain pleasures,
All their boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasures
None but Zion’s children know.
