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). 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.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ servant, saying, “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory. No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.” —Joshua 1:1–5 XVII. Support in the gracious Presence of God under the Loss of Ministers, and other useful Friends. Joshua i. 2, 4, 5. Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) Now let our mourning Hearts revive, And all our Tears be dry. Why should those Eyes be drown’d in Grief, Which view a Saviour nigh? What tho’ the Arm of conqu’ring Death Does God’s own House invade? What tho’ the Prophet, and the Priest Be number’d with the Dead? Tho’ earthly Shepherds dwell in Dust, The Aged, and the Young, The watchful Eye in Darkness clos’d, And mute th’ instructive Tongue; Th’ eternal Shepherd still survives New Comfort to impart; His Eye still guides us, and his Voice Still animates our Heart. “Lo, I am with you, saith the Lord, “My Church shall safe abide; “For I will ne’er forsake my own, “Whose Souls in me confide.” Thro’ every Scene of Life, and Death, This Promise is our Trust; And this shall be our Children’s Song, When we are cold in Dust. —Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).

Moreover David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all the people were embittered, each one because of his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. —1 Samuel 30:6 XX. The Saint encouraging himself in the Lord his God. 1 Sam. xxx. 6. Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) Jehovah, ’tis a glorious Name: Still pregnant with Delight; It scatters round a chearful Beam, To gild the darkest Night. What tho’ our mortal Comforts fade, And drop like with’ring Flowers? Nor Time nor Death can break that Band, Which makes Jehovah ours. My Cares, I give you to the Wind, And shake you off like Dust; Well may I trust my All with him, With whom my Soul I trust. —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.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Truly is not my house so with God? For He has made an everlasting covenant with me, Ordered in all things, and secured; For all my salvation and all my desire, Will He not indeed make it grow? —2 Samuel 23:5 XXII. Support in God’s covenant in the near views of death. 2 Sam. xxiii. 1. and 5. compared. Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) ’Tis mine, the Cov’nant of his Grace; And every promise mine! All sprung from everlasting love, And seal’d by blood divine. On my unworthy favour’d head Its blessings all unite; Blessings more numerous than the stars, More lasting, and more bright. Death, thou mayst tear this rag of flesh, And sink my fainting head, And lay my ruins in the grave, Among my kindred dead: But death and hell in vain shall strive To break that sacred rest, Which God’s expiring children feel, While leaning on his breast. Th’ enlarged soul thou canst not reach, Nor rend from Christ away; Tho’ o’er my mould’ring dust thou boast, The triumphs of a day. The night is past, my morning dawns; My Cov’nant God descends, And wakes that dust to join my soul In bliss that never ends. That Cov’nant the last accent claims Of this poor falt’ring tongue; And that shall the first notes employ Of my celestial song. —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.
