“The LORD said unto David, Go… and save Keilah… So David saved the inhabitants of Keilah” (1 Samuel 23:2-5). “My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war” (Psalm 120:6,7). “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction” (Proverbs 31:8). ”Not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved” (1 Corinthians 10:33).
We have no power of our own
To fight the battles of the Lord,
But He gives grace to make Him own
With His own Word, His Spirit’s sword.
The Lord told David “Go and save”
The people who were in distress.
To this commandment David clave;
He needed nothing more or less.
Are not we likewise also spurred
To speak to those who don’t have peace?
We’re called to GO and preach God’s Word,
Though others tell us we should cease.
We speak to show salvation’s path
Escaping Satan’s great seduction.
We cry to souls to turn from wrath
To Christ who saves us from destruction.
Not for our profit do we speak,
But for the souls whom Christ would win.
We plead with souls to humbly seek
The Lord who saves us from our sin!
We thank You, Lord, for Your command
To preach to souls with Your desire
As You stretch forth Your saving hand
To save them from the lake of fire.
Preserve us, Lord, from apathy,
And spur us on to speak for You,
Investing in eternityBy all we think, and say, and do.
