Contentment in Christ
Are you content with Jesus? Do you feel as though your life is complete because your eyes have seen Jesus? We have not seen Jesus in the flesh, but we know in our heart of God’s salvation. We can chase after things of this world. Or we can be content to have what Christ gives us. Content with holiness. Jesus is the way. Are we content with the way? Jesus is the truth. Are we content with knowing the truth? Are we content with the life Jesus gives, or are we looking for more in this world. A song that has meant much to me is, “I’d rather have Jesus.” I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold I'd rather be his than have riches untold I'd rather have Jesus than houses or land Yes I'd rather be led by his nail pierced hands Than to be the king of a vast domain and be held in sins dread sway I'd rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today The Apostle Paul says it well. He says: But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. (Philippians 3:7)
Hephzibah and Beulah
The beauty of this passage is found in God’s promises. If anyone else made these promises, we would scoff. Who can possibly fulfill these promises? Only God. Nothing can stand in His way. He is all-wise, all-powerful, and full of zeal to bring about His purpose and plan. “Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.” (Matthew 22:9)
Verse five of this passage is an amazing picture of our salvation and one which helps us to think rightly about our salvation. The basis of our salvation is not on our merits but upon the character and glory of God.Shout for joy, expand your tent, and fear notfor your husband is your Maker, whose name is the Lord of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, who is called the God of all the earth.
God's Soul Delight
We have received mercy. We are redeemed from a dark dungeon. We are given sight and we may behold the risen Messiah who gives us life. God saves us that we may glorify His name.
