Inspired Invitation

"The inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding… I will open my lips and answer" (Job 32:8,20).  "The Lord gave the Word: great was the company of those that published it… Thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among themOur God is the God of salvation" (Psalm 68:11,18-20).  "The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life" (Proverbs 10:11).  "Yet there is room… Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in" (Luke 14:22,23). 

God gave His Word by inspiration
That we may preach in every season
The Word that offers His salvation
And gives an answer for the reason. 

How great this invitation sounds
To rebel sinners God calls too,
For grace through Jesus Christ abounds
To rebels just like me and you! 

Our mouth becomes a well of life
That echoes heaven's gracious call,
For Christ has triumphed in the strife  
To ransom sinners, one and all. 

This invitation that we send,
Inspired by the Word You gave,   
On Your behalf, Lord, we extend
To every soul You died to save.
