Sing Unto the Lord


If we love a person, we like to think about him

If we love a person, we like to think about him. We do not need to be reminded of him. We do not forget his name or his appearance or his character or his opinions or his tastes or his position or his occupation. He comes up before our mind’s eye many a time in the day. Though perhaps far distant, he is often present in our thoughts.

Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ! Christ ‘dwells in his heart’, and is thought of more or less every day (Eph 3:17). The true Christian does not need to be reminded that he has a crucified Master. He often thinks of him. He never forgets that He has a day, a cause and a people, and that of His people he is one. Affection is the real secret of a good memory in religion. No worldly man can think much about Christ, unless Christ has pressed his notice, because he has no affection for Him. The true Christian has thoughts about Christ every day he lives, for this one simple reason that he loves Him.
