Reflecting With God 4/13/2023

Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.

Thursday Reflecting

The fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon. – Song of Solomon 4:11.

In the days when the Mosque of Omar was first built, over that spot of Moriah where the worshipper could touch a piece of the unhewn original rock of the hill, it was customary to bring loads of incense and all aromatic shrubs into the shrine, which was called Sakhrah. As a consequence, if any one from the city had been worshipping there, he carried away with him so much of the fragrance of the place, that when people passed him in the market-place of Jerusalem, or in the streets, they used to say to each other, “He has been in the Sakhrah to-day!” Would to God we thus lived, coming forth daily with our “garments” smelling of the “myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, from the ivory palaces.” With fresh holiness every day drawn out of Christ, what witnesses for Him should we be! How joyfully should we listen to the loving voice that is ever calling, “Be ye holy, for I am holy”; and He Who speaks thus would hasten to give us more and more when we repair to Him.
