I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” But this I say, brethren, the time has been shortened, so that from now on those who have wives should be as though they had none; and those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess; and those who use the world, as though they did not make full use of it; for the form of this world is passing away. —1 Corinthians 7:29–31 CCLXVIII. The transitory Nature of the World, an Argument for Christian Moderation. 1 Cor. vii. 29–31. Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) Spring up, my Soul, with ardent Flight, Nor let this Earth delude thy Sight With glitt’ring Trifles, gay and vain: Wisdom divine directs thy View To Objects ever grand and new, And Faith displays the shining Train. Be dead, my Hopes, to all below; Nor let unbounded Torrents flow, When mourning o’er my wither’d Joys: So this deceitful world is known: Possess’d, I call it not my own, Nor glory in its painted Toys. The empty Pageant rolls along; The giddy inexperienc’d Throng Pursue it with enchanted Eyes; It passeth in swift March away, Still more and more its Charms decay, Till the last gaudy Colour dies. My God, to Thee my Soul shall turn; For Thee my noblest Passions burn, And drink in Bliss from Thee alone: I fix on that unchanging Home, Where never-fading Pleasures bloom, Fresh-springing round Thy radiant Throne. —Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755). 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.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. —Genesis 5:24 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God. —Hebrews 11:5 I. Enoch’s Piety and Translation. Genesis v. 24. Hebrews xi. 5. Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) Eternal God, our wond’ring Souls Admire thy matchless Grace; That Thou wilt walk, that Thou wilt dwell, With Adam’s worthless Race. O lead me to that happy Path, Where I my God may meet; Tho’ Hosts of Foes begird it round, Tho’ Briars wound my Feet. Chear’d with thy Converse, I can trace The Desart with Delight: Thro’ all the Gloom one Smile of thine Can dissipate the Night. Nor shall I thro’ eternal Days A restless Pilgrim roam; Thy Hand, that now directs my Course, Shall soon convey me home. I ask not Enoch’s rapt’rous Flight To Realms of heav’nly Day; Nor seek Elijah’s fiery Steeds, To bear this Flesh away. Joyful my Spirit will consent To drop its mortal Load, And hail the sharpest Pangs of Death, That break its Way to God. —Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).
