God has a way of getting His way—even when we try to stand in it.

Scripture: Genesis 11:1-9

ESV Text: Genesis 11:1-9


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 11

     1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

     5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 409:
Let us Ever Walk with Jesus

— Organ Audio

1. Let us ever walk with Jesus, 
Follow His example pure, 
Flee the world, which would deceive us 
And to sin our souls allure. 
Ever in His footsteps treading, 
Body here, yet soul above, 
Full of faith and hope and love, 
Let us do the Father’s bidding. 
Faithful Lord, abide with me; 
Savior, lead, I follow Thee. 

2. Let us suffer here with Jesus, 
To His image, e’er conform; 
Heaven’s glory soon will please us, 
Sunshine follow on the storm. 
Though we sow in tears of sorrow, 
We shall reap with heavenly joy; 
And the fears that now annoy 
Shall be laughter on the morrow. 
Christ, I suffer here with Thee; 
There, oh, share Thy joy with me! 

3. Let us also die with Jesus. 
His death from the second death, 
From our soul’s destruction, frees us, 
Quickens us with life’s glad breath. 
Let us mortify, while living, 
Flesh and blood and die to sin; 
And the grave that shuts us in 
Shall but prove the gate to heaven. 
Jesus, here I die to Thee 
There to live eternally. 

4. Let us gladly live with Jesus; 
Since He’s risen from the dead, 
Death and grave must soon release us. 
Jesus, Thou art now our Head, 
We are truly Thine own members; 
Where Thou livest, there live we. 
Take and own us constantly, 
Faithful Friend, as Thy dear brethren. 
Jesus, here I live to Thee, 
Also there eternally.
