Do I so live in this world?

Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved?” Song of Solomon 8:5

Ask yourselves, “Am I this blessed person?”

Do I so live in this world, that others notice the holiness of my walk, and my entire devotion to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

And Do I, instead of loving the world, account it a dreary wilderness?Do I so live in this world?

Do I renounce the pomps and vanities of this wicked world, and the sinful lusts of the flesh?

“Am I dying unto the world”–to its cares, its pleasures, its maxims, its habits, its friendship?

Am I “crucified unto the world? And is the world crucified unto me by the cross of Christ,” so that I value it no more than a man does who is in the very throes of death? Galatians 6:14

In my passage through this wilderness world, am I leaning constantly on my beloved Savior, saying, “In the Lord I have righteousness and strength!” Isaiah 45:24

If these things are true of you, then as your sympathetic high priest, in every time of need, He will be with you:
to counsel you by His wisdom,
uphold you by His power, and
enrich you with His benefits!

What an all-sufficient support you have in this dreary wilderness world! Your ever-present Savior shields you, and cares for you, and guards you as the apple of His eye!

Your beloved Lord Jesus, “is able to keep you from falling, and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with exceeding joy!” Jude 24
