A Meditation on Love to Christ

Posted by:

A Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) If all those who love Christ are to receive a crown of life at His hands, what more natural improvement follows from it, than to exhort and persuade all towards love to Christ? But we shall offer some other motives to persuade all to this duty: FIRST. The first and greatest motive, is the loveliness of Christ. As all the loveliness that is to be seen in Heaven and earth is only the reflection of the rays of His lovely glory, so there is scarcely anything that is glorious, sweet, beautiful, and lovely, but what is used to set forth the beauty of Christ. What is more glorious to look upon than the sun, that brig....

John Calvin On the Christian Life

On the Christian Life This book treats of the Life of the Christian. Its five chapters are arranged as to admit of being classed under two principal heads. First, it must be held to be an universally acknowledged point, that no man is a Christian who does not feel some special love for righteousness, chap. i. Second, in regard to the standard by which every man ought to regulate his life, although it seems to be considered in chap. ii. only, yet the three following chapters also refer to it. For it shows that the Christian has two duties to perform. First, the observance being so arduous, he needs the greatest patience. Hence chap. iii. treats professedly of the utility o....

Treasury of David – Psalm 6

PSALM 6 TITLE. This Psalm is commonly known as the first of the PENITENTIAL PSALMS, (The other six are Ps 32:1-11 38:1-22 51:1-19 102:1-7 Ps 130:1-8 143:1-12) and certainly its language well becomes the lip of a penitent, for it expresses at once the sorrow, (Ps 6:3,6,7), the humiliation (Ps 6:2,4), and the hatred of sin (Ps 6:8), which are the unfailing marks of the contrite spirit when it turns to God. O Holy Spirit, beget in us the true repentance which needeth not to be repented of. The title of this Psalm is "To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith (1Ch 15:21), A Psalm of David," that is, to the chief musician with stringed instruments, upon the eighth, prob....

PSALM 5

PSALM 5. TITLE. "To the Chief Musician upon Nehiloth, a Psalm of David." The Hebrew word Nehiloth is taken from another word, signifying "to perforate;" "to bore through," whence it comes to mean a pipe or a flute; so that this song was probably intended to be sung with an accompaniment of wind instruments, such as the horn, the trumpet, flute, or cornet. However, it is proper to remark that we are not sure of the interpretation of these ancient titles, for the Septuagint translates it, "For him who shall obtain inheritance," and Aben Ezra thinks it denotes some old and well known melody to which this Psalm was to be played. The best scholars confess that great darkness h....

Psalm 4

Psalm 4 PSALM 4. TITLE. This Psalm is apparently intended to accompany the third, and make a pair with it. If the last may be entitled THE MORNING PSALM, this from its matter is equally deserving of the title of THE EVENING HYMN. May the choice words Ps 4:8 be our sweet song of rest as we retire to our repose! "Thus with my thoughts composed to peace, I'll give mine eyes to sleep; Thy hand in safety keeps my days, And will my slumbers keep." The Inspired title runs thus: "To the chief Musician on Neginoth, a Psalm of David." The chief musician was the master or director of the sacred music of the sanctuary. Concerning this person carefully read 1Ch 6:31,32; 15:16-22; 25:1....
