Psalms 122* Esteem for Jerusalem. (1-5) Concern for its welfare. (6-9)1-5 The pleasure and profit from means of grace, should make usdisregard trouble and fatigue in going to them; and we shouldquicken one another to what is good. We should desire ourChristian friends, when they have any good work in hand, to callfor us, and take us with them. With what readiness should wethink of the heavenly Jerusalem! How cheerfully should we bearthe cross and welcome death, in hopes of a crown of glory!Jerusalem is called the beautiful city. It was a type of thegospel church, which is compact together in holy love andChristian communion, so that it is all as one city. If all thedisciples of Christ were of one mind, and kept the unity of theSpirit in the bond of peace, their enemies would be deprived oftheir chief advantages against them. But Satan's maxim alwayshas been, to divide that he may conquer; and few Christians aresufficiently aware of his designs. 6-9 Those who can do nothing else for the peace of Jerusalem,may pray for it. Let us consider all who seek the glory of theRedeemer, as our brethren and fellow-travellers, withoutregarding differences which do not affect our eternal welfare.Blessed Spirit of peace and love, who didst dwell in the soul ofthe holy Jesus, descend into his church, and fill those whocompose it with his heavenly tempers; cause bitter contentionsto cease, and make us to be of one mind. Love of the brethrenand love to God, ought to stir us up to seek to be like the LordJesus in fervent prayer and unwearied labour, for the salvationof men, and the Divine glory
