Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time ends tonight! I've quoted here from Thomas Watson's The Ten Commandments. Tonight here's another excerpt from his treatment of the 4th commandment. This is in a section where he talks about how to "dress your souls for hearing the word." We dress our bodies each day; let's dress our souls as well that we might be ready to receive the truth of God's Word tomorrow!
Meditating on a Lord's-day morning on Christ's love, would kindle love in our hearts to him. How can we look on his bleeding and dying for us, and our hearts not be warmed with love to him? Love is the soul of religion, the purest affection. It is not rivers of oil, but sparks of love that Christ values...while we are musing of Christ's love in redeeming us, the fire of our love will burn towards him; and then the Christian is in a blessed Sabbath-frame, when, like a seraphim, he is burning in love to Christ. (p. 105)
