Morning and Evening
For the evening of July 26th

"That He may set him with princes." --Psalm 113:8
Our spiritual privileges are of the highest order. "Among princes" is the place of select society. "Truly our fellowshipis with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ." Speak ofselect society, there is none like this! "We are a chosengeneration, a peculiar people, a royal priesthood." "We are comeunto the general assembly and church of the first-born, whosenames are written in heaven." The saints have courtlyaudience: princes have admittance to royalty when common peoplemust stand afar off. The child of God has free access to theinner courts of heaven. "For through Him we both have access byone Spirit unto the Father." "Let us come boldly," says theapostle, "to the throne of the heavenly grace." Among princesthere is abundant wealth, but what is the abundance of princescompared with the riches of believers? for "all things areyours, and ye are Christ's, and Christ is God's." "He thatspared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, howshall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" Princeshave peculiar power. A prince of heaven's empire has greatinfluence: he wields a sceptre in his own domain; he sits uponJesus' throne, for "He hath made us kings and priests unto God,and we shall reign for ever and ever." We reign over the unitedkingdom of time and eternity. Princes, again, have specialhonour. We may look down upon all earth-born dignity from theeminence upon which grace has placed us. For what is humangrandeur to this, "He hath raised us up together, and made ussit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus"? We share thehonour of Christ, and compared with this, earthly splendours arenot worth a thought. Communion with Jesus is a richer gem thanever glittered in imperial diadem. Union with the Lord is acoronet of beauty outshining all the blaze of imperial pomp.
