He delights in His people and He desires that His people to delight in Him. In order to accomplish this, He has revealed Himself in the most amiable characters, as a Husband; a Friend; a Brother; a Savior; a Shepherd, and so forth, all on purpose to endear Himself to us!
Surely if our hearts were right we would delight in Him on account of His glorious perfections; His unalterable love; the perfect atonement made for our sins; the promises made for our comfort and encouragement; the gift of the Holy Spirit; the communion we are urged to hold with Himself; and the glorious paradise of blessedness set before us where we shall forever view the unfolding of His glories, enjoy the riches of His grace, and drink of the river of His pleasures!
Sick Christian, Jesus bids you to delight in Him! Delight in Him as your Savior, Friend, and Brother! Delight in His person and glories! Delight in His perfect work! Delight in His glorious fullness! Delight in your salvation in Him, union to Him, and claim upon Him. Oh, delight in Jesus! You will have no permanent peace or solid satisfaction but as you are delight in Him, and rejoice in Him, saying, "You are my portion, O Lord!"
