Gospel Wednesday: I Will Call Upon the Lord

Luke 1:70-71

as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
that we should be saved from our enemies. 

When I read this Scripture from my Advent devotional I was remembering a line from an old hymn, "So shall I be saved from my enemies". 

Didn't remember the title of the hymn so looked up the line "So shall I be saved from my enemies" online. Found the title of the hymn which is "I Will Call Upon the Lord". 

Petra - I Will Call Upon The Lord Lyrics | MetroLyrics

I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised
So shall I be saved from my enemies, oh yeah
I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised
So shall I be saved from my enemies
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised So shall I be saved from my enemies
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised So shall I be saved from my enemies
I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised So shall I be saved from my enemies
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted.

1 HEAR
14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?

17 So faith comes through hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:14;17 ESV

2 BELIEVE
24 I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in 



your sins.
John 8:24 ESV

3 REPENT


The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent
Acts 17:30 ESV




4 CONFESS THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD
9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. Romans 10:9-10 ESV


5 BE BAPTIZED



38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 2:38 ESV
16 And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name. Acts 22:16 ESV

10 Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. Revelation 2:10 ESV


11 I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. Revelation
