On the use of this little volume I would fain
say two things which lie upon my heart.
first is this: that the Christian who desires to make use of
it must not be content merely to read and to understand the portion
for the day, but must take time to meditate upon it and to appropriate
it. I am convinced that one chief cause why some do not grow more
in grace is that they do not take time to hold converse with the
Lord in secret. Spiritual, divine truth does not thus become our
possession at once. Although I understand what I read, although
I consent heartily to it, although I receive it, it may speedily
fade away and be forgotten, unless by private meditation I give
it time to become fixed and rooted in me, to become united and identified
with me. Christians, give yourselves, give your Lord time to transfer
His heavenly thoughts to your inner, spiritual life. When you have
read a portion, set yourselves in silence before God. Take time
to remain before Him until He has made His word living and powerful
in your souls. Then does it become the life and the power of your
And this brings me to the second remark which I desire
to make. It is this: that the Christian must take special care
that he do not suffer himself to be led away from the Word of God
by the many manuals which in our days are seeing the light. These
books will have this result, —whenever a man seeks his instruction
only in what the writer has to say, he then becomes accustomed to
take everything at second hand. These books can become a blessing
to the reader only when they bring him always to that portion of
God’s Word which is treated of in order that he may meditate further
upon it himself as from the mouth of God. Christians, there is in
the Word of God an incredible power. The blessing which lies hid
in it is inconceivable. See to it that when you have read a portion
you always return to that passage of the Scriptures of which an
explanation is given. Receive that not as the word of man, but,
as it is in truth, the Word of God, which works mightily in those
that believe. Hold fellowship with God through the Word. Take time
to speak with Him about it, to give an answer to Him concerning
it. Then shall you understand what the Lord Jesus says: “The words
which I speak unto you, they are spirit and life.” Then shall Word
and sacrament gloriously work together, to make you increase in
prayer and in the life of God.
That the Eternal God may bless this little
volume also, to make His children learn His own Word, is the prayer
of the author for all his readers.

|My God, and is Thy table spread?
And does Thy cup with love o’erflow?
Thither be all Thy children led,
And let them all its sweetness know.
Hail, sacred feast, which Jesus makes!
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood!
Thrice happy he who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food!
O let Thy table honored be,
And furnished well with joyful guests;
And may each soul salvation see
That here its sacred pledges tastes.
Let crowds approach with hearts prepared,
With hearts inflamed let all attend;
Nor, when we leave our Father’s board,
The pleasure or the profit end.
Revive Thy drooping Churches, Lord!
And bid our drooping graces live;
And more, that energy afford,
A Saviour’s love alone can give.
