September 29 – CH Spurgeon.

September 29-Evening

“I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not
let him go.” {#So 3:4}

Does Christ receive us when we come to him, notwithstanding
all our past sinfulness? Does he never chide us for having tried
all other refuges first? And is there none on earth like him? Is
he the best of all the good, the fairest of all the fair? O,
then let us praise him! Daughters of Jerusalem, extol him with
timbrel and harp! Down with your idols, up with the Lord Jesus.
Now let the standards of pomp and pride be trampled under foot,
but let the cross of Jesus, which the world frowns and scoffs
at, be lifted on high. O for a throne of ivory for our King
Solomon! Let him be set on high for ever, and let my soul sit at
his footstool, and kiss his feet, and wash them with my tears.
O, how precious is Christ! How can it be that I have thought so
little of him? How is it I can go abroad for joy or comfort when
he is so full, so rich, so satisfying. Fellow believer, make a
covenant with thine heart that thou wilt never depart from him,
and ask thy Lord to ratify it. Bid him set thee as a signet upon
his finger, and as a bracelet upon his arm. Ask him to bind thee
about him, as the bride decketh herself with ornaments, and as
the bridegroom putteth on his jewels. I would live in Christ’s
heart; in the clefts of that rock my soul would eternally abide.
The sparrow hath made a house, and the swallow a nest for
herself where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord
of hosts, my King and my God; and so too would I make my nest,
my home, in thee, and never from thee may the soul of thy turtle
dove go forth again, but may I nestle close to thee, O Jesus, my
true and only rest.

When my precious Lord I find,
All my ardent passions glow;
Him with cords of love I bind,
Hold and will not let hi
