“Fain we would on Thee rely,
Cast on Thee our sin and care:
To Thine arms of mercy fly,
Find our lasting quiet there.” – Unknown
The little poem above reminded me of an old hymn I heard sung at a Mennonite funeral. It was very comforting to hear it’s words as they laid my loved one to rest. I knew they were safe in the arms of Jesus, for they had called on Him, and accepted His gift of salvation! I know I will see them again someday when I reach the other side…. Listen…
As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. -John 1:12
Do you want to KNOW for sure that you are held safe within the arms of Jesus? Just call on His name, believe that His blood will cleanse you from all your sins, and then trust Him! You are safe within His arms!
