THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. We now turn our thoughts to another important factor if there is to be positive dealing with God. It is essentially ‘love’. This is a crucial factor if there is to be fruitful and worthwhile relation with an for God. Nothing of any worth will be known or accomplished without a vibrant and close accord with Him in this all essential.

Love – The Ultimate Demonstration – John 3:16; Romans 5

It takes God himself to give a full revelation of pure love an passion and this He did in the granting of His Son to become a human to produce an incredible work on man’s behalf. The greatest text of truth said in be written is John 3:16 – “For Go so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son . . .”. He gave Him to be born of Adam’s race, a human being; He gave Him to bless and relief mankind with an extraordinary ministry an service, and then gave Him to die on the Cross to become man’s sin bearer making it possible to forgive sin and reconcile man to Himself, and that includes you!

The Cross was the actual venue where Go put on display in a quiet but dynamic manner and measure is infinite love. He shows once for all how vast, high, deep an great is incredible affection for the sons of men, Yes, and that includes you! Paul puts it like this: “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. Note: Christ id not die for us because we were good but that we needed to be made good. Through the Cross the LORD would move your heart to embrace His kind of love.

God will not force Himself on you but quietly shows how much he has loved an loves you in Christ an what He ha accomplished for you. Being in God’s Family and living in accord with Him is based on nothing less or more than His kind of love. Let Him infuse you with it until you are indwelt and inspired today by an with it and for eternity, too. Nothing could be better or greater for you.

SACRED SONGS

If I knew Thee a thou Art

This lovely was composed by a beautiful Christian an great preacher, Ian Macpherson. He had an immense love for the Christ. This comes out as he begins to try and evaluate the wonder an worth of His matchless Lord and Saviour. There is the indication sense that he felt, good man that he was, inadequate to describe fully the beauty an splendour of thi matchless person! I think every true believer would agree. There is no one like Jesus!

1/. If I but knew Thee as Thou art, O loveliness unknown,

With what desire, O Lord, my heart  Would claim Thee for its own.

2/. Thy glory would my shame conceal, Thy purity my dross:

I should rejoice with Thee to feel The sorrow of the cross.

3/. But I am dull and blind, 0 Lord, Unapt of Thee to learn;

Thee I but dimly in Thy word, As in a glass, discern.

4/. With faith’s warm finger, through the veil, I seek to touch Thy hand:

I feel the imprint of the nail And partly understand.

5/ But, ah, my lonely spirit tires Of knowing Thee in part.

O Jesus, how my soul desires To see Thee as Thou art

DAILY MEDITATIONS

WRONG MOTIVATION – 2 Kings 20

Hezekiah’s prayer, on the occasion of his terminal sickness, should have evidenced a pure, divine motivation. The word of the Lord to him concerning his death gave him the opportunity of setting everything in place for the future in terms of the kingdom in a godly manner. But he was more concerned about himself than he was of God or his family and nation. All he could think about was leaving this life and he did not want to die.

His plea to the Lord was of his previous behaviour and commitment to him. When the Lord assured him of recovery and about what was to happen after his decease with the invasion of Babylon and the removal of the Temple treasures and his family, he again showed a wrong motivation. He said: “At least there will be peace and security during the remainder of my own life!” – v19. It is sad to think that his mind was merely considering his own ease and comfort. When you note how the Lord had saved him and the people from becoming victims to the Assyrian forces one should have expected a far better mind and attitude.

There is always the grave danger of being wrongly motivated. Good people who seem to have done a good job can get admixture into their lives and desires later on. It is always necessary to know what God wants and even if it is against your own judgment and considerations to bow and acquiesce to it. When He speaks in His wisdom and grace it is always with your interest at heart and the ultimate good of His whole Kingdom. This is what should inspire you in life and at death. Look well always to the inward springs of your motivations and desires so that they conform to God’s perfect will for your life and service.
