Look up!

“I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2

It is good always to look up. Thousands of people dwarf their lives, and hinder the possibilities of growth in their souls–by looking downward. They keep their eyes ever entangled in mere earthly sights, and miss the glories of the hills that pierce the clouds, and of the heavens that bend over them!

A story is told of a boy who one day found a gold coin on the street. Ever after this–he kept his eyes on the ground as he walked, watching for coins. During a long lifetime, he found a good number of coins–but meanwhile he never saw the flowers and the trees which grew in such wondrous beauty everywhere; he never saw the hills, the mountains, the sweet valleys, the picturesque landscapes; he never saw the blue sky. To him, this lovely world meant only a dusty road, dreary and unbeautiful, merely a place in which to look for coins.

This really is the story of the life of most people. They never lift their eyes off the earth! They live only to gather money, to add field to field, to scheme for power or to find pleasure. Or, if their quest is a little higher, it is still only forearthly things. They never lift up their eyes to God! There is no blue sky in their picture. They cherish no heavenly visions. They are without God in the world.

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:1-2

(J. R. Miller, “Unto the Hills!” A Meditation on Psalm 121)

Our conception of Christian living

Posted by on Jan 10, 2010 in Grace Gems, J. R. Miller | 0 comments

True religion is intensely practical. Only so far as it dominates one’s life–is it real. We must get the commandments out of God’s Word–and give them a place in the hard, dusty paths of our earthly toil and struggle. We must get them off the tables of stone–and have them written on the walls of our own hearts! We must bring the Golden Rule–into our daily, actual life.

We are too apt to imagine, that holiness consists in mere good feeling toward God. It does not! It consists in obedience in heart and life to the divine requirements. To be holy is, first, to be set apart for God and devoted to God’s service, and it necessarily follows that we must live for God.

Our hands are God’s–and can fitly be used only in doing His work; our feet are God’s–and may be employed only in walking in His ways and running His errands; our lips are God’s–and should speak words only that honor Him and bless others; our hearts are God’s–and must not be profaned by thoughts and affections that are not pure.

True holiness is no vague sentiment–it is intensely practical. It is nothing less than the bringing of every thought and feeling and act–into obedience to Christ! We are quite in danger of leaving out the element of obedience, in our conception of Christian living. If we do this, our religion loses its strength and grandeur–and becomes weak, nerveless and forceless.

Our religion must touch every part of our life–and transform it all into the beauty of holiness.

(J. R. Miller, “Being Christians on Weekdays” 1888)

O Jesus!

Posted by on Jan 9, 2010 in Music, Reformed Praise | 0 comments

Another excellent hymn from Reformed Praise! I LOVE this website soooo much. It has been such a blessing for me and I hope that it is or will be for you as well. This team has an amazing talent for music and I highly recommend downloading ALL of their music! I just can’t get enough of it!

O Jesus (Download mp3)

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to speak its worth;
It sounds like music to my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
It tells me of a Savior’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

O Jesus, the name I love to hear,
The name I hold most dear;
O Jesus, the name I love to share,
The name beyond compare.
O Jesus, O Jesus!

It tells of One Whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe;
Who in my sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.
It bids my trembling heart rejoice,
It dries each rising tear;
It tells me in a still, small voice
To trust and never fear.

This name shall lift my spirit still
Along my pilgrim road,
And bless me as I climb the hill
That leads me up to God.
And there with all the blood-bought saints,
From sin and sorrow free,
This precious name I’ll ever praise
For all His love to me.
