“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good.” Psalm 34:8
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
There is an infinite fullness of all spiritual blessings treasured up in Christ Jesus for all His people, and out of His fullness, they receive even grace for grace. But, alas! We are slow of heart to believe the truth. We please ourselves with small things and come slowly forward to receive an abundance of that fullness. Young converts, enamored with what they have in hand, or living upon their feelings, are ready to flee from knowledge thinking it something dangerous and destructive to their relationship with Jesus. On the other hand, some cold-hearted professors would explode all affection and animation as though the passions had no share in the Christian religion, and suggest that religion is but a mere assemblage of knowledge.
O my soul, be a humble suppliant at the feet of Jesus, for a live-coal from off the altar to purge away your iniquity and to warm your feelings. Implore also the aids of the Holy Spirit to lead me into the knowledge of the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Then shall I taste and see that “the Lord is good.” Then shall you rejoice in the Lord and glory in the Holy 0ne of Israel.
O Sovereign Love, to Thee I cry,
Give me Thyself, or else I die!
Save me from death, from hell set free;
Death, hell are the lack of Thee!
My life, my crown, my heaven Thou art,
O may I find Thee in my heart .
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
