DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 30; Job 40-41; Matt. 16:13 to 17:13

…that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord… Psalm 27:4

David’s heart-longing was to be in the presence of the Lord and “to behold the beauty of the Lord”. As we come together to worship, especially at the Lord’s Supper, what is the focus of our attention? Do we muse and meditate upon the beautiful character and person of our Saviour? His words were full of grace and truth. His life was fragrant with love for all. His loving hands healed the sick. His loving lips spoke words of forgiveness to the broken sinner. His agonizing death for sinners proclaimed the amazing love of God. He is a beautiful Saviour! Behold the beauty of the Lord! —Donald L. Norbie

Beautiful Saviour, King of creation, Son of God and Son of Man!
Truly I love Thee, truly I serve Thee, Light of my soul, my joy, my crown.
