Psalms 87* The glory of the church. (1-3) It is filled with the Divineblessing. (4-7)1-3 Christ himself is the Foundation of the church, which Godhas laid. Holiness is the strength and firmness of the church.Let us not be ashamed of the church of Christ in its meanestcondition, nor of those that belong to it, since such gloriousthings are spoken of it. Other foundation can no man lay thanthat is laid, even Jesus Christ. The glorious things spoken ofZion by the Spirit, were all typical of Christ, and his work andoffices; of the gospel church, its privileges and members; ofheaven, its glory and perfect happiness. 4-7 The church of Christ is more glorious and excellent thanthe nations of the earth. In the records of heaven, the meanestof those who are born again stand registered. When God rendersto every man according to his works, he shall observe whoenjoyed the privileges of his sanctuary. To them much was given,and of them much will be required. Let those that dwell in Zion,mark this, and live up to their profession. Zion's songs shallbe sung with joy and triumph. The springs of the joy of a carnalworldling are in wealth and pleasure; but of a gracious soul, inthe word of God and prayer. All grace and consolation arederived from Christ, through his ordinances, to the souls ofbelievers
