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)

"I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love."


"I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love." 
 Hosea 11:4

Our heavenly Father often draws us with the cords of love;
but ah! how backward we are to run towards him!
 How slowly do we respond to his gentle impulses!
He draws us to exercise a more simple faith in him;
 but we have not yet attained to Abraham's confidence;
 we do not leave our worldly cares with God,
but, like Martha, we cumber ourselves with much serving.

Our meagre faith brings leanness into our souls;
we do not open our mouths wide, though God has promised to fill them.
 Does he not this evening draw us to trust him?
 Can we not hear him say, "Come, my child, and trust me.

The veil is rent; enter into my presence, and approach boldly to the throne of my grace.
 I am worthy of thy fullest confidence, cast thy cares on me.
 Shake thyself from the dust of thy cares,
and put on thy beautiful garments of joy."

But, alas! though called with tones of love to the blessed exercise of this comforting grace,
we will not come.
At another time he draws us to closer communion with himself.
We have been sitting on the doorstep of God's house,
and he bids us advance into the banqueting hall and sup with him, but we decline the honour.

There are secret rooms not yet opened to us; Jesus invites us to enter them, but we hold back.
 Shame on our cold hearts!
We are but poor lovers of our sweet Lord Jesus, not fit to be his servants, much less to be his brides, and yet he hath exalted us to be bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh, married to him by a glorious marriage-covenant.

 Herein is love! But it is love which takes no denial.
 If we obey not the gentle drawings of his love,
he will send affliction to drive us into closer intimacy with himself.
Have us nearer he will.
What foolish children we are to refuse those bands of love,
and so bring upon our backs that scourge of small cords,
which Jesus knows how to use!

"Behold, thou art fair, my Beloved."

"Behold, thou art fair, my Beloved." 
 Song of Song of Solomon 1:16

From every point our Well-beloved is most fair.
 Our various experiences are meant by our heavenly Father to furnish fresh standpoints from which we may view the loveliness of Jesus; how amiable are our trials when they carry us aloft where we may gain clearer views of Jesus than ordinary life could afford us! We have seen him from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, and he has shone upon us as the sun in his strength; but we have seen him also "from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards," and he has lost none of his loveliness. 

From the languishing of a sick bed, from the borders of the grave, have we turned our eyes to our soul's spouse, and he has never been otherwise than "all fair." Many of his saints have looked upon him from the gloom of dungeons, and from the red flames of the stake, yet have they never uttered an ill word of him, but have died extolling his surpassing charms. 

Oh, noble and pleasant employment to be for ever gazing at our sweet Lord Jesus! Is it not unspeakably delightful to view the Saviour in all his offices, and to perceive him matchless in each?-to shift the kaleidoscope, as it were, and to find fresh combinations of peerless graces? In the manger and in eternity, on the cross and on his throne, in the garden and in his kingdom, among thieves or in the midst of cherubim, he is everywhere "altogether lovely."

 Examine carefully every little act of his life, and every trait of his character, and he is as lovely in the minute as in the majestic.
 Judge him as you will, you cannot censure; weigh him as you please, and he will not be found wanting. 
Eternity shall not discover the shadow of a spot in our Beloved, 
but rather, as ages revolve, his hidden glories shall shine forth with yet more inconceivable splendour, and his unutterable loveliness shall more and more ravish all celestial minds.

"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ."

"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ." 
 Philippians 1:27

The word "conversation" does not merely mean our talk and converse with one another, but the whole course of our life and behaviour in the world. 
The Greek word signifies the actions and the privileges of citizenship: and thus we are commanded to let our actions,
as citizens of the New Jerusalem, be such as becometh the gospel of Christ.

 What sort of conversation is this? 
In the first place, the gospel is very simple.
 So Christians should be simple and plain in their habits. 
There should be about our manner, our speech, our dress, 
our whole behaviour, that simplicity which is the very soul of beauty.
 The gospel is pre-eminently true, it is gold without dross; 
and the Christian's life will be lustreless and valueless without the jewel of truth. 

The gospel is a very fearless gospel, it boldly proclaims the truth, whether men like it or not: we must be equally faithful and unflinching. 
But the gospel is also very gentle. 
Mark this spirit in its Founder: "a bruised reed he will not break." 
Some professors are sharper than a thorn-hedge; such men are not like Jesus. Let us seek to win others by the gentleness of our words and acts. 

The gospel is very loving. 
It is the message of the God of love to a lost and fallen race. 
Christ's last command to his disciples was, "Love one another." 
O for more real, hearty union and love to all the saints; 
for more tender compassion towards the souls of the worst and vilest of men! We must not forget that the gospel of Christ is holy.

 It never excuses sin: it pardons it, but only through an atonement. 
If our life is to resemble the gospel, we must shun, 
not merely the grosser vices, but everything that would hinder our perfect conformity to Christ.
 For his sake, for our own sakes, and for the sakes of others,
 we must strive day by day to let our conversation be more in accordance with his gospel.

"Satan hindered us."

"Satan hindered us."
1 Thessalonians 2:18

Since the first hour in which goodness came into conflict with evil, it has never ceased to be true in spiritual experience, 
that Satan hinders us. 
From all points of the compass, all along the line of battle, 
in the vanguard and in the rear, at the dawn of day and in the midnight hour, Satan hinders us.

 If we toil in the field, he seeks to break the ploughshare;
 if we build the wall, he labours to cast down the stones;
 if we would serve God in suffering or in conflict--everywhere Satan hinders us.

 He hinders us when we are first coming to Jesus Christ. 
Fierce conflicts we had with Satan when we first looked to the cross and lived. 
Now that we are saved, he endeavours to hinder the completeness of our personal character.

 You may be congratulating yourself, "I have hitherto walked consistently; no man can challenge my integrity." 
Beware of boasting, for your virtue will yet be tried; 
Satan will direct his engines against that very virtue for which you are the most famous. 

If you have been hitherto a firm believer, your faith will ere long be attacked; if you have been meek as Moses, expect to be tempted to speak unadvisedly with your lips. 
The birds will peck at your ripest fruit, and the wild boar will dash his tusks at your choicest vines. 

Satan is sure to hinder us when we are earnest in prayer. 
He checks our importunity, and weakens our faith in order that,
 if possible, we may miss the blessing. 
Nor is Satan less vigilant in obstructing Christian effort. 
There was never a revival of religion without a revival of his opposition. 

As soon as Ezra and Nehemiah begin to labour, 
Sanballat and Tobiah are stirred up to hinder them.
 What then? We are not alarmed because Satan hindereth us, 
for it is a proof that we are on the Lord's side, 
and are doing the Lord's work, and in his strength we shall win the victory, and triumph over our adversary.
