Psalms 95* part. An exhortation to praise God. (1-7) A warning not totempt Him. (7-11)1-7 Whenever we come into God's presence, we must come withthanksgiving. The Lord is to be praised; we do not want matter,it were well if we did not want a heart. How great is that God,whose the whole earth is, and the fulness thereof; who directsand disposes of all!, The Lord Jesus, whom we are here taught topraise, is a great God; the mighty God is one of his titles, andGod over all, blessed for evermore. To him all power is given,both in heaven and earth. He is our God, and we should praisehim. He is our Saviour, and the Author of our blessedness. Thegospel church is his flock, Christ is the great and goodShepherd of believers; he sought them when lost, and broughtthem to his fold. 7-11 Christ calls upon his people to hear his voice. You callhim Master, or Lord; then be his willing, obedient people. Hearthe voice of his doctrine, of his law, and in both, of hisSpirit: hear and heed; hear and yield. Christ's voice must beheard to-day. This day of opportunity will not last always;improve it while it is called to-day. Hearing the voice ofChrist is the same with believing. Hardness of heart is at thebottom of all distrust of the Lord. The sins of others ought tobe warnings to us not to tread in their steps. The murmurings ofIsrael were written for our admonition. God is not subject tosuch passions as we are; but he is very angry at sin andsinners. That certainly is evil, which deserves such arecompence; and his threatenings are as sure as his promises.Let us be aware of the evils of our hearts, which lead us towander from the Lord. There is a rest ordained for believers,the rest of everlasting refreshment, begun in this life, andperfected in the life to come. This is the rest which God callshis rest
