The dove’s return to the ark
‘But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot.’
Suggested Further Reading:
We must love something, or some one.
Man was not made to live alone, and therefore no man lives unto himself.
Our heart must flow like a river, or it corrupts like a stagnant pool. Some have great hearts, and they require a great object on which to spend their love.
They love fondly and firmly, too fondly and too firmly for earthly love. These are they who suffer from broken hearts. They have so much love that when they set it upon an unworthy object they reap a proportionate degree of misery and disappointment.
Now let me say solemnly that no heart of a child of God will ever be satisfied with any object or person short of the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is room for wife and children, there is room for friend and acquaintance, and all the more room in one’s heart because Christ is there, but neither wife, nor children, nor friends, nor kinsfolk can ever fill the believers’s heart.
He must have Christ Jesus; there is no rest for him elsewhere. Do I address any believer who has been making an idol? Have you set up any god in your heart? Have you loved any creature so as to forget your Saviour? Be it child, or husband, or friend, take heed of the sin of idolatry.
You cannot, you shall not find rest for the sole of your foot in the creature, however fair that creature may seem.
God will break your idol before your eyes, or if he suffer that idol to stand, it shall remain to plague and curse you, for ‘thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm.’
‘Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?’ Give your hearts to the Lord Jesus and he will never disappoint you. Lean on him with all your weight of affection, for he will never fail you.
The Lord Jesus Christ has told us that we must love both God and man, but he has also specified who should come first
(Mark 12:28–30), who should come second (Mark 12:31)
and where we should place the emphasis (Matthew 10:37).
Sermon no. 637
2 July (1865)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty,
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus,
who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free,
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
not only to live on this earth,
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
