Solomon Asks for a Discerning Heart

1 Kings 3

Galatians 4.4-5-But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, 5 to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.

The Third Article  
I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.  Amen.
What does this mean?
I believe that I cannot by my own thinking or choosing believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to him.  But the Holy Spirit has called me by the gospel, enlightened me with his gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true faith.  In the same way he calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.
In this Christian church he daily and fully forgives all sins to me and all believers.
On the Last Day he will raise me and all the dead and give eternal life to me and all believers in Christ.
This is most certainly true.

Jerusalem The Golden v. 1

Jerusalem the golden, With milk and honey blest— 
The sight of it refreshes The weary and oppressed:
I know not, oh, I know not What joys await us there, 
What radiancy of glory, What bliss beyond compare: 
To sing the hymn unending With all the martyr throng, 
Amidst the halls of Zion Resounding full with song.
