CONTEMPLATION OF DIVINITY...
From Spurgeon's, "The Immutability of God"
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,
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
"I am but of yesterday, and know nothing."
No subject of contemplation will tend more to humble the
mind, than thoughts of God.
