It Becomes Mutual

"I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall
be My people"   (2 Corinthians 6:16).

Here is a mutual interest. Each belongs to each. God is the portion of His
people, and the chosen people are the portion of their God. The saints find in
God their chief possession, and He reckons them to be His peculiar treasure.
What a mine of comfort lies in this fact for each believer!

This happy condition of mutual interest leads to mutual consideration. God will
always think of His own people, and they will always think of Him. This day my
God will perform all things for me; what can I do for Him? My thoughts ought to
run toward Him, for He thinketh upon me. Let me make sure that it is so and not
be content with merely admitting that so it ought to be.

This, again, leads to mutual fellowship. God dwells in us, and we dwell in Him;
He walks with us, and we walk with God….

Oh, for grace to treat the LORD as my God: to trust Him and to serve Him, as His
Godhead deserves! Oh, that I could love, worship, adore, and obey Jehovah in
spirit and in truth! This is my heart’s desire. When I shall attain to it, I
shall have found my heaven. LORD, help me! Be my God in helping me to know Thee
as my God, for Jesus’ sake.
