He longed to embrace the truth, and therefore held up his hands to receive it with inward delight. He felt encouraged to practise diligently the law of his God, because he loved the Lord’s Word, and daily meditated therein. It should be our daily habit to search the Scriptures. We must not be content with this family reading, but must each, in private, feed upon the precious Word. Are we all mindful of this?
In thee I live, and move and am;
Thou dealest out my days:
Lord, as thou dost my life renew,
Let me renew thy praise.
To thee I come, from thee I am;
For thee I still would be;
Tis better for me not to live,
Than not to live to thee.
