Our Lord Jesus, after His death and resurrection, left this earth with His hands uplifted in blessing upon His own, “for Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us,” where “He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Our Lord’s high priestly prayer on the night before the cross gives us a picture of His present intercession by which His own are continually blessed. He said, “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. … Holy Father, keep through Thine own name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are. … I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil.” So now, up in heaven, He continually blesses us. “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: the Lord make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the Lord lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”
He lives for us up in heaven;
He lives to bless His own;
Our names engraven on His hands,
We are loved by God’s dear Son.

“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” “And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; and to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, charity [love]. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ,” but shall thus “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” “Hold fast the form of sound words … in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus,” and “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” So “I will meditate in Thy precepts, and have respect unto Thy ways,” for “blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart.” “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
So think upon the Word of God
That it may fill your heart,
And cling to it each passing day,
And ne’er from it depart.

It is not possible for us to understand the troubles and problems of others unless we ourselves have undergone similar trials. Then we can “rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep,” and “be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” Then we can truthfully say with Job, “Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? Was not my soul grieved for the poor?” It is written of our Lord that “Jesus wept,” when “Mary … fell down at His feet,” and “Jesus … saw her weeping,” “for we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin,” “for in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succor them that are tempted.” We need spiritual discernment to “know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary,” for “as he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to a heavy heart.” There are times when we need to be like Job’s three friends, who “sat down with him … and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.” So “remember … them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”
If you would be a blessing
And to others help impart,
Think of His comfort to you
When you were weary in heart.

“We know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” Even “if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness,” and “we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.” “We through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith,” for “now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for He hath prepared for them a city.” “I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better.” “Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself,” and “then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“We walk by faith, and not by sight,”
As we wait for that glad time,
When we shall be up there with Him,
And see His glory sublime.

So spoke our blessed Lord Jesus Christ. They who come to Him in faith, trusting Him as their Savior, are His forever. He will never expel them; He will not drive them out or send them away. He said that “this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” We are “kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time,” and “the God of all grace … hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus,” “in whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also, after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.” He “shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ,” and “He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” We who know the Lord Jesus, unworthy as we are in ourselves, “are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called.” Therefore “grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
Saved forever by His grace,
No power can pluck me away;
Saved and kept by God’s power,
Until that eternal day.

It is sadly possible for us to be “speaking the truth,” but not “in love,” and “though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity [love], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” There are some things which are true, but which are better left unspoken. We who know the Lord are told that “above all things have fervent charity [love] among yourselves: for [love] shall cover the multitude of sins.” We are also told to be “laying aside … all evil speakings,” that is, things spoken with intent to hurt others, even if such things are true. “He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.” And the same principle of “speaking the truth in love” applies to our proclamation of God’s Word, which “word is truth.” The Word of God is not our personal weapon to be used thoughtlessly or carelessly. It is “the sword of the Spirit … the word of God.” We are not to speak it in a contentious way, but rather to be “speaking the truth in love,” regarding it “not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God.” Thus shall the truth of God be usable as we speak it, and thus shall we, “speaking the truth in love … grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.”
When we speak “the truth in love,”
God clothes it with His power;
Results will be eternal;
It brings forth bud and flower.

“Blessed are they which hear the word of God, and keep it.” “If any man be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh unto 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.” The Lord told Ezekiel of the professed believers of his day that “they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” And “to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” God has given us His Word, not merely for information, but for the transformation of our lives, and “blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart. They also do no iniquity: they walk in His ways.” So “order my steps in Thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”
The Word of God is full of power,
To cleanse and keep and guide;
God asks for our obedience,
No matter what betide.

Thus said our blessed Lord. He also said, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled,” “for He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.” We read that our Savior also said that “if any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” Our reaction ought to be that “I stretch forth my hands unto Thee: my soul thirsteth after Thee, as a thirsty land.” “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after Thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?” And His answer is that “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,” and “the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought … and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.”
He, the Fount of living waters,
Bids us come to Him and take;
He will quench our deepest longings;
He our deepest thirst will slake.

God’s Word contains many “ifs,” telling of certain things that will be done “if” certain conditions are met. The above verse having to do with our salvation is a good example. “Thou shalt be saved,” then, “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead.” After we are saved, too, there are many applicable “ifs” in our lives. Our Lord said that “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.” Furthermore, it is said to us Christians that “if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us,” for “if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” But also, thank God, “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” And, “if any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine.” Our Lord said, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments,” and “if ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
God’s Word is full of promises
For those who trust and obey;
“The Lord will give grace and glory”
And will help us day by day.

God wants His children to be “obedient children.” “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” God desires His children to obey His Word, for “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path,” and “the entrance of Thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding to the simple,” “that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries.” God’s will is “that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,” but rather that we “walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savor.” “And 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.”
The Christian should always obey,
For blessing from the Lord;
Thus will his life be filled with joy,
With peace and sweet accord.
