‘For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace.’
The prophet here endeavours to stir up God’s people to great vigour and activity.
I. Some reasons for this awakening voice of God.—(1) We are naturally inclined to be indifferent. (2) God works in His own method. (3) The mission we are called to is supremely great. (4) Every church should be an evangelisation society. (5) Difficulties will be great, conflicts severe and continuous. (6) The greatest power we can wield against error is to live Christ. (7) The Church is the living representative of Christ in the world. (8) Seek to be clothed in the beautiful garments of holiness, humility, love, godliness, etc.
II. The strength the Church needs for this.—(1) Holy faith. (2) Living communion with God. (3) Earnest consecration of Christian effort. (4) Indomitable perseverance. (5) Importunate prayer.
