Worship

“When they saw Him, they worshipped Him” (Matthew 28:17).

What is it that produces true worship?

It is a fresh and deepened sense of who Christ is! It is to be occupied with Himself, His glories, His beauties, His character. It is to have our minds and our hearts absorbed with Himself!

Open your Bible and read Song of Solomon 5:10-16. Here we have the bride describing the qualities of her Bridegroom, and at the end of it all, she says, “He is altogether lovely” (verse 16).

As we meditate and enjoy the person of Christ, our heavenly Bridegroom, it will produce worship in our hearts, just as the disciples worshiped when they saw the Lord, as indicated in our opening verse.

Someday soon, we will worship as we gaze unhindered upon Him in the Father’s house, as indicated in Revelation 5:14: “And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped Him that liveth for ever and ever.”

However, He wants that response from our hearts now.

Will you give Him that honor today?

Living Water

“Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst” (John 19:28).

“I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely” (Revelation 21:6).

What a striking contrast these two verses invoke in our minds! First of all, the Lord Jesus suffering on the cross, and instead of water to quench His dire thirst, it could be said,

“They gave Me vinegar to drink” (Psalm 69:21).

Now for the sinner the invitation goes out to come and take of that “living water” (John 4:10). This divine, endless spring quenches the spiritual thirst of the soulnow and for eternity. Like the woman of Samaria, at Sychar’s well, all you have to do is receive the Lord Jesus as your Savior by simple faith. Then and there the same promise made to the woman that day will be yours:

“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” (John 4:14).

Seeing Jesus

“We see Jesus” (Hebrews2:9).

“Looking unto Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2).

“I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up” (Isaiah 6:1).

“Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56).

“And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him” (Matthew 28:17).

What vision of enjoyment will you have of the Lord Jesus as you head out for another busy day of activity? Here is a good prayer for us to recite or sing at the beginning of each new day.

 

Oh fix our earnest gaze
So wholly, Lord, on Thee,
That, with Thy beauty occupied,
We elsewhere none may see.

C.A. Bernstein (1672-1699)

Although in heaven and hid from our physical sight, He is no less real to the eye of faith.

The Day

“This is the day which the Lord hath made.”

Do you really believe that? If you do, then you can truly experience the rest of the verse:

“We will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).

We talk about good days and bad days. But when we know the Lord and trust Him for every situation that comes our way, then every day is a good day. No matter what happens, His promise remains,

“As thy days, so shall thy strength be” (Deuteronomy 33:25).

Even in the midst of deep trial and distress, Jeremiah wrote,

“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord” (Lamentations 3:22-26).

Whether having a good day or a bad day, will you be able to echo the same sentiment?

Anxious

In an uncertain, ever changing, chaotic world, many are suffering from severe anxiety and other related maladies. Maybe you too are approaching today with concern and worry? If so, pause and reflect upon the assurances which the Lord gives you in His unchanging Word.

For instance, rest your heart in the assurance of His companionship: “I am with you alway” (Matthew 28:20).

Also, take note of His relationship: “I am thy God” (Isaiah 41:10).

Don’t forget His ability: “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Above all, don’t forget His stupendous love: “God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us” (Ephesians 2:4).

And remember, we have a wonderful future, and the promise from the Lord Jesus: “I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3).

Perfect Peace — Ezra 7:12

“Let the peace of God rule in your hearts” (Colossians 3:15).

“Perfect peace, and at such a time,”

Resting in Jesus, a joy so sublime;
Peace like none other,
Peace for the soul,
Peace for the journey,
Until reached the goal.

“Perfect peace, and at such a time,”

Then in that home of peace, there to chime,
Songs of fresh worship,
Thanksgiving, and praise,
For peace we enjoyed,
And God’s marvelous ways.

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

Dear Young Christian,

During a recent illness, I received many cards with expressions of comfort and love. One in particular stood out in regard to the front cover message. Here is what it said:

Someone’s taking really good care of you. Our God is the Great Physician. He is the One who made you. He knows how to mend you. His healing touch restores body, soul, and spirit. His schedule is never too full. His diagnosis is always accurate. His treatment is always wise and gentle. His results are amazing.

“He hath done all things well” (Mark 7:37).

Maybe there is one of my readers going through some sickness. I trust these lines will be a help and comfort today. They certainly were to me!

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

Love

“I love the Lord, because…” (Psalm 116:1).

What is it that draws out our hearts’ affections as we meditate on the Lord’s person and work on another “Lord’s day” (Revelation 1:10)?

Here are just two examples:

“We love Him, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

“Because of the savor of Thy good ointments Thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love Thee…We will remember Thy love” (Song of Solomon 1:3-4).

Yes, it is His love combined with His beauties and glories that causes our love to ignite and to set ablaze our hearts’ affections.

As we remember the Lord in the breaking of bread, as we sing hymns of His person and work, as we read our Bibles and consider the work of Calvary, as we think of where He is now, all He is doing for us at the right hand of God, and all that is ahead in the future day of glory, how can we not have enlarged affections for our precious Savior and Lord?

Resurrection

Since the earliest days of Christianity there have always been those who deny the fact of the resurrection, asserting that with physical death all is over and done with. Others are more cautious, saying that there will be a general resurrection at the last judgment. Both views are wrong!

The Bible plainly states:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live….Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:25, 28-29).

Now the question for each reader to consider in light of eternity is, Which resurrection will you be a participant in? Will it be the resurrection of life for eternal blessing with the Lord Jesus in the Father’s house? Or will it be the resurrection of damnation in the confines of Hell?

This matter needs to be settled immediately!

After death or Christ’s second coming it will be too late.

Rest

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass” (Psalm 37:7).

“Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354 AD – August 28, 430 AD), was a Roman African, and early Christian theologian and philosopher from Numidia. Sometime during his lifetime he penned the following quote: “Our hearts are restless until they find rest in the Lord.”

Even as a true child of God we can have an empty, aching, restless heart if it is not centered on Christ and His promises and purposes. However, a heart centered and fixed on Christ will have an inward peace and rest that outward circumstances cannot affect.

If you are not experiencing this rest today, then the Lord is saying to you,

“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
