Be Filled With the Spirit

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:15

Elton Roth was born in Indiana and led his first church choir when he was fourteen. He attended Moody Bible Institute and Fort Wayne Bible College. He studied music in Europe. Elton became a singing evangelist and song leader. He
formed the Ecclesia Choir, which performed around the country. Later Los Angeles became his home. One of the first hymns he wrote the words and music for was the hymn “I Have a Song That Jesus Gave Me.” He wrote over one hundred
hymns. He wrote the spirit filled hymn, “In My Heart There Rings a Melody” on a hot summer day in Texas. It became a favorite hymn for many years around the world.

My prayer for the week: Dear Lord, we come to You every day seeking You and asking You to use us for Your glory. We are so grateful for Your Holy Word that teaches us the great truths of the Scripture. We gladly learn how to live our lives from the teaching in the Bible. Praise God. Amen
