One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27: 4.


The Christian’s desire and prayer to God is to dwell in the house of the Lord. In times such as these that may resonate, as we are limited in our church attendance, due to Alberta Health regulations. However, the emphasis of the text is on gazing upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.


The beauty of the Lord is that He presents glorious good news in the gospel of salvation. Sinners are free from sin and misery, because of Jesus Christ. That is the beauty of the Lord. That should be on our minds every morning when we get up to get going in the day. To know that and to work with that supersedes all other concerns one might have. And so we may hear the gospel every Sunday in freedom.
