1 Chronicles 12* Those who came to David at Ziklag. (1-22) Those who came toHebron. (23-40)1-22 Here is an account of those who appeared and acted asDavid's friends, while he was persecuted. No difficulties ordangers should keep the sinner from coming to the Savior, nordrive the believer from the path of duty. Those who breakthrough, and overcome in these attempts, will find abundantrecompence. From the words of Amasai we may learn how to testifyour affection and allegiance to the Lord Jesus; his we must bethroughly; on his side we must be forward to appear and act. Ifwe are under the influence of the Spirit, we shall desire tohave our lot among them, and to declare ourselves on their side;if in faith and love we embrace the cause of Christ, he willreceive, employ, and advance us. 23-40 When the throne of Christ is set up in a soul, there is,or ought to be, great joy in that soul; and provision is made,not as here, for a few days, but for the whole life, and foreternity. Happy are those who wisely perceive it to be theirduty and interest, to submit to the Saviour Jesus Christ, theSon of David; who renounce for his sake all that is notconsistent; whose earnest endeavours to do good are directed bythe wisdom that God giveth, through acquaintance with his word,experience, and observation. If any man lack this wisdom, lethim ask it of God, who giveth to all men liberally, andupbraideth not, and it shall be given him.
