Contemplation of Divinity...


The proper study of a Christian is the Godhead--
The highest science,
the loftiest speculation,
the mightiest philosophy, which can ever
engage the attention of a child of God,
is the name,
the nature,
the person,
the work,
the doings,
and the existence
of the great God whom he calls his Father.

There is something exceedingly improving to the mind
in a contemplation of the Divinity--
It is a subject so vast,
that all our thoughts are lost in its immensity;
so deep, that our pride is drowned in its infinity.

Other subjects we can compass and grapple with--
in them we feel a kind of self-content,
and go our way with the thought, "Behold I am wise."

But when we come to this master-science,
finding that our plumb-line cannot sound its depth,
and that our eagle eye cannot see its height,
we turn away with the thought, that vain man would be
wise, but he is like a wild donkey's colt; and with the
solemn exclamation--
"I am but of yesterday, and know nothing."

No subject of contemplation will tend more to humble the
mind, than thoughts of God.

-Charles Spurgeon from, "The Immutability of God"
