[January 1]
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Psalm 95:6
WHEN once we get a glimpse of the glories of the divine character through the divine plan, when once we get a true view with the eyes of our understanding of him with whom we have to do, as the great heart-searcher and caretaker of his church, we fall before him humbled to the dust, realizing that we are imperfect, that we cannot stand before our Master, that we are unworthy of his favor and blessing. But as he touched John gently, raising him up, so he has spoken to us comfort, peace, and love, assuring us that we have not an High Priest that cannot be touched with a feeling of our infirmities, but on the contrary, One who is able to sympathize and mercifully to assist, One who has bought us with his own precious blood, who has accepted us and will number us as his body members so long as we abide in him, seeking in our hearts to know and to do his will. Z'05-169 R3569:6(Hymn 69)
