Holy Contemplation

In Psalm 48, the Sons of Korah model for us what to do when we come to worship: they spend their time thinking on the steadfast love of God. Their minds are given over to a holy contemplation of the character of God: His righteousness, eternality, and love, and His actions: how He protects His people, gives righteous judgments, and places them in a beautiful, awe-inspiring city. These are the thoughts that should fill our minds, and it is this contemplation that prompts our praise and rejoicing. So if you are not yet filled with joy this morning, use your mind to walk about Zion, considering what God has done in and for His Church, until you cannot keep your praise contained any longer.
