A Christian’s love for the Lord may be accurately measured by his love for the Word, for our Lord said, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments,” and “then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Let no one who neglects and lightly esteems the Word of God talk about his love for the Lord. If you would “delight thyself also in the Lord,” it must be because “Thy testimonies also are my delight, and my counselors,” for what can we know about the Lord Jesus, except what He has told us in His Word? He said that “the Scriptures … are they which testify of Me.” If we truly love Him, we can say, “O how love I Thy law! It is my meditation all the day,” and “therefore I love Thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.” So “be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves,” for “whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
To know the Word and not do it
Brings reproach upon His name;
His Word is a light to our path;
Obeyed, it keeps us from shame.

Prayer not only brings blessing to those prayed for, it also brings blessing to those who pray, for, in order to pray effectually, we must be in close fellowship with the Lord. “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me,” for “whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” Thus we “draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” By His provision through Christ, we “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” So prayer brings blessing to the pray-er because it keeps us desirous of fellowship with God. Prayer also brings a blessing to the one who prays because it turns us from self-centeredness to concern for others, so that we no longer “look … every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others,” as we seek in prayer to “bear … one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Further, prayer makes us dependent upon God, causing us to realize that “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above.” “My prayer returned into mine own bosom.”
To pray in the Spirit to God,
We must draw nigh unto Him;
Then His blessing comes to our hearts,
And things of the world grow dim.

Ezekiel was given a prophetic vision of the millennial temple, from whence our Lord Jesus shall reign over all the earth. Then “the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” But it will not detract from that future scene of blessing to remind ourselves that for us now, those waters picture God’s abounding grace toward His own. Our Lord told the Samaritan woman that “whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life,” and His gracious invitation to all is, “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters,” “and whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” And as we come to Him and go on with Him, we learn that “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” As we “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” we learn that His grace is all-sufficient, “a river that I could not pass over … waters to swim in.”
“Rivers of living water” flow
From the Person of our Lord;
“Waters to swim in,” depth untold,
Come forth from the living Word.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand.” God is genuinely concerned about His redeemed children and wants to lead us “in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake,” and “if any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine.” So we are told to “be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” He has promised that “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with Mine eye.” “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” “Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.” So “show me Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day,” and He promises that when we “in all thy ways acknowledge Him … He shall direct thy paths.”
I would walk in the ways of the Lord,
Trusting Him to lead and to guide,
For His Word is a lamp to my feet,
Trustworthy, whatever betide.

What God has purposed and promised, He will fulfill, in spite of all the liberals and atheists and unbelievers. “Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee: the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain.” This is to say that God will fulfill His purposes in the world and with His own people in spite of all opposition. “We can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth,” and He “worketh all things after the counsel of His own will.” He “is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working,” and “hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” And all this is “according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places … and hath put all things under His feet.” “The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand.” “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning … saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,” “for I will hasten My word to perform it.”
God’s Word is very, very sure;
What He promises, He’ll do;
Satan and men may oppose Him;
He’ll see His promises through.

“The law of the Spirit,” the principle by which the Spirit works in our lives as Christians, is that “of life in Christ Jesus.” Though we are told that “if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” and that we are to “walk in the Spirit, and [so] shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh,” the Holy Spirit does not thus enable us to live for God’s glory by calling our attention to Himself. Rather, He directs our hearts to Another, the Lord Jesus Christ, and keeps us “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” The purpose of our being “strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man” is “that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Our Lord said that the Holy Spirit “shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you.” If we have “the righteousness of the law … fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit,” it is because the Spirit is actualizing in us “life in Christ Jesus,” pointing us to “Christ, who is our life.”
The Spirit points us to the Lord,
By whose grace we’ve been made free;
His life within gives us the power
To live for eternity.

“God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord … but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.” “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe,” so “be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” In all confidence, the redeemed child of God can say, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” And “though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.” We may rest our hearts on His promise: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” “I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”
God has not put fear in our hearts;
He taketh our fears away;
He gives us His peace and quietness;
He changes our night to day.

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him.” “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. … And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us … full of grace and truth.” He is “the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me,” and “he that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him,” “that all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent Him.” The Son of God said that “no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
God’s only begotten Son
Came into the world to save,
Crucified for all our sins,
And raised by God from the grave.

“Jehovah-jireh” means “Jehovah will provide,” or “the Lord will provide.” And not only did He provide Abraham with a ram for a burnt offering, He continually provides all His own with all that they need, spiritually and materially. “God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” “The Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly,” for “the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: He is our help and our shield.” “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content,” for “my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” “O fear the Lord, ye His saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
He provideth all that we need,
As we journey from earth to heaven;
Graciously and abundantly
It from His hand is given.

Just as one may see his face reflected in water, so, as he looks into his own heart, he sees that which is also in the hearts of others. As far as any inherent righteousness is concerned, we “are all under sin; as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God,” “for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” As for us who are saved by God’s grace, we all still have to confess that “I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good, I find not.” Do we excuse things in ourselves which we condemn in others? If things are sinful in others, they are sinful in us also. If things permitted by others seem hateful or questionable, they are hateful and questionable in us too. “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man … for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.” And as we long in our own hearts for understanding and comfort and encouragement, let us remember that others have the same needs, “knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”
Do we look upon others with scorn,
Thinking we’re better than they?
Forgetting we’re all as nothing,
Needing God’s grace every day?
