And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof...Revelation 5:5 (KJV)

"Accepted in the beloved."


"Accepted in the beloved." 
- Ephesians 1:6

What a state of privilege! It includes our justification before God, but the term "acceptance" in the Greek means more than that. It signifies that we are the objects of divine complacence, nay, even of divine delight. 

How marvellous that we, worms, mortals, sinners, should be the objects of divine love! But it is only "in the beloved." Some Christians seem to be accepted in their own experience, at least, that is their apprehension. 

When their spirit is lively, and their hopes bright, they think God accepts them, for they feel so high, so heavenly-minded, so drawn above the earth! But when their souls cleave to the dust, they are the victims of the fear that they are no longer accepted. 

If they could but see that all their high joys do not exalt them, and all their low despondencies do not really depress them in their Father's sight, but that they stand accepted in One who never alters, in One who is always the beloved of God, always perfect, always without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, how much happier they would be, and how much more they would honour the Saviour! Rejoice then, believer, in this: thou art accepted "in the beloved."

 Thou lookest within, and thou sayest, "There is nothing acceptable here!" But look at Christ, and see if there is not everything acceptable there. 

Thy sins trouble thee; but God has cast thy sins behind his back, and thou art accepted in the Righteous One. Thou hast to fight with corruption, and to wrestle with temptation, but thou art already accepted in him who has overcome the powers of evil. 

The devil tempts thee; be of good cheer, he cannot destroy thee, for thou art accepted in him who has broken Satan's head. Know by full assurance thy glorious standing. 

Even glorified souls are not more accepted than thou art. They are only accepted in heaven "in the beloved," and thou art even now accepted in Christ after the same manner.

"Just, and the justifier of him which believeth."


"Just, and the justifier of him which believeth." 
Romans 3:26

Being justified by faith, we have peace with God. 
Conscience accuses no longer. 
Judgment now decides for the sinner instead of against him. 

Memory looks back upon past sins, with deep sorrow for the sin, but yet with no dread of any penalty to come; 
for Christ has paid the debt of his people to the last jot and tittle, and received the divine receipt; 
and unless God can be so unjust as to demand double payment for one debt, 
no soul for whom Jesus died as a substitute can ever be cast into hell. 

It seems to be one of the very principles of our enlightened nature to believe that God is just; 
we feel that it must be so, and this gives us our terror at first; 
but is it not marvellous that this very same belief that God is just,
 becomes afterwards the pillar of our confidence and peace! 
If God be just, I, a sinner, alone and without a substitute, 
must be punished;
 but Jesus stands in my stead and is punished for me; 
and now, if God be just, I, a sinner, standing in Christ, 
can never be punished.

 God must change his nature before one soul, 
for whom Jesus was a substitute, can ever by any possibility suffer the lash of the law. 

Therefore, Jesus having taken the place of the believer-having rendered a full equivalent to divine wrath for all that his people ought to have suffered as the result of sin, 
the believer can shout with glorious triumph, 
"Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect?" 
Not God, for he hath justified; 
not Christ, for he hath died, "yea rather hath risen again." 

My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, 
but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; 
my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, 
he is my righteousness. 

My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, 
or know, but in what Christ is, in what he has done, 
and in what he is now doing for me. 

On the lion of justice the fair maid of hope rides like a queen.

"Before honour is humility."


"Before honour is humility."
Proverbs 15:33

Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it. 
If we empty our hearts of self, God will fill them with his love. 
He who desires close communion with Christ should remember the word of the Lord, 
"To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, 
and trembleth at my word."

 Stoop if you would climb to heaven. 
Do we not say of Jesus, "He descended that he might ascend?" 
So must you.

 You must grow downwards, that you may grow upwards; 
for the sweetest fellowship with heaven is to be had by humble souls, and by them alone.

 God will deny no blessing to a thoroughly humbled spirit.  
"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,"
 with all its riches and treasures. 

The whole exchequer of God shall be made over by deed of gift to the soul which is humble enough to be able to receive it without growing proud because of it.

 God blesses us all up to the full measure and extremity of what it is safe for him to do. 
If you do not get a blessing, it is because it is not safe for you to have one. 

If our heavenly Father were to let your unhumbled spirit win a victory in his holy war, 
you would pilfer the crown for yourself, 
and meeting with a fresh enemy you would fall a victim;
 so that you are kept low for your own safety. 

When a man is sincerely humble, 
and never ventures to touch so much as a grain of the praise, 
there is scarcely any limit to what God will do for him. 

Humility makes us ready to be blessed by the God of all grace, 
and fits us to deal efficiently with our fellow men. 
True humility is a flower which will adorn any garden. 

This is a sauce with which you may season every dish of life, 
and you will find an improvement in every case. 
Whether it be prayer or praise, whether it be work or suffering, the genuine salt of humility cannot be used in excess.

"He will give grace and glory."


"He will give grace and glory." 
- Psalm 84:11

Bounteous is Jehovah in his nature; to give is his delight. 
His gifts are beyond measure precious, and are as freely given as the light of the sun. 

He gives grace to his elect because he wills it, to his redeemed because of his covenant, to the called because of his promise,
 to believers because they seek it, to sinners because they need it. 

He gives grace abundantly, seasonably, constantly, readily, sovereignly; doubly enhancing the value of the boon by the manner of its bestowal. 

Grace in all its forms he freely renders to his people: comforting, preserving, sanctifying, directing, instructing, assisting grace, he generously pours into their souls without ceasing, and he always will do so, whatever may occur. 

Sickness may befall, but the Lord will give grace; poverty may happen to us, but grace will surely be afforded; death must come but grace will light a candle at the darkest hour. 

Reader, how blessed it is as years roll round, and the leaves begin again to fall, to enjoy such an unfading promise as this, "The Lord will give grace. " 

The little conjunction "and" in this verse is a diamond rivet binding the present with the future: grace and glory always go together. 

God has married them, and none can divorce them. 
The Lord will never deny a soul glory to whom he has freely given to live upon his grace; indeed, glory is nothing more than grace in its Sabbath dress, grace in full bloom, grace like autumn fruit, mellow and perfected.

 How soon we may have glory none can tell! 
It may be before this month of October has run out we shall see the Holy City; but be the interval longer or shorter, 
we shall be glorified ere long. 

Glory, the glory of heaven, the glory of eternity, 
the glory of Jesus, the glory of the Father, the Lord will surely give to his chosen. Oh, rare promise of a faithful God! 

Two golden links of one celestial chain: 
Who owneth grace shall surely glory gain.
