What is the supreme purpose of our lives? The Israelites were of one heart to make David king. Is this our purpose, to prepare the Bride, to prepare the world, to prepare His way?
Does this objective dwarf and dim all other ambitions, all other cares?
Does it fill and satisfy every capacity, every power, every desire?
Does it absorb every moment, every energy, every resource?
Does it give direction and tone to every plan and work of life?
Does it decide for us the education of our children, the investment of our means, the friendships and associations of life, the whole activity, interest and outlook of our beings?
Are we in it, spirit, soul and body-all we are, all we do, all we hope for-of one heart to make Jesus King?
[A. B. Simpson]
1 Chronicles 12:38 ... All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make David king.
Acts 2:1 ... And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Philippians 2:2 ... Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.❤
