Lord’s Day 22, 2019


I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

image

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 3:13–14

This same hymn was posted here yesterday. This is Bunyan’s original text.

image

Who would true valour see,
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be,
Come wind, come weather.
There’s no discouragement
Shall make him once relent,
His first avow’d intent
To be a pilgrim.

Who so beset him round
With dismal stories,
Do but themselves confound,
His strength the more is;
No lion can him fright,
He’ll with a giant fight
But he will have a right
To be a pilgrim.

Hobgoblin nor foul fiend
Can daunt his spirit
He knows he at the end
Shall life inherit.
Then fancies fly away,
He’ll fear not what men say;
He’ll labour night and day
To be a pilgrim.

The Pilgrim’s Progress: The Second Part, in The Works of John Bunyan (Banner of Truth, 1991), 3:235.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon
, try these.
