[The hymn writer got it spot-on right. It’s “Trust and Obey” not “Trust and Contemplate”. – JT] Jay Adams: This word today is taboo in some Christian circles. Why?

Hark! The Heralds in the Welkin Sing

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. – Luke 2:10 Upon his conversion, Charles Wesley immediately began writing hymns, each one packed with doctrine, all of them exhibiting strength and sensitivity, both beauty and theological brawn. he […]
