That "whoever will may come"
Is an open invitation.
"Taste to see that God is good"
Is sure to bring one revelation.
Pre-destination in God’s plan
Refers to those who come...
They are destined to deposit in
The Kingdom of His Son.
Persuaded that our God will guard
Commitments to His Christ...
Persuaded, too, that Heaven hails
The One who sacrificed.
Whatever we may give to add
More credence to His call
Are deposited as assets and
An Angel banks them all.
But, too, God has invested
And deposited in us.
Does not the Holy Spirit
Truly guarantee His trust?
Love…the love of God... has been
Poured into every heart
Of those who make Him Savior…
Those of us He's set apart.
So it's a duel deposit…
We in Him and He in us.
And Heaven has a saving plan
Which all the world can trust.

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures
on earth, where moth and rust destroy
and where thieves break in and steal;
but lay up for yourselves treasures in
heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys
and where thieves do not break in and steal."
2 Corinthians 1:21-22
Now He who establishes us with you in Christ
and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed
us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
Now hope does not disappoint, because
the love of God has been poured out
in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who
was given to us.
In Him you also trusted, after you heard
the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation;
in whom also, having believed, you were sealed
with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption
of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the
present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all
creation, will be able to separate us from the love
of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!"
And let him who hears say, "Come!"
And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires,
let him take the water of life freely.
