But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all your works.
Who does not wish for good? But too many fail to understand what real good is, and choose that which is evil by mistake.
I. THE ACTION — "drawing near." We may do so by prayer, by study, by preparation. But we must do so chiefly by being conformed to the likeness of the Holy Spirit and by being united through Jesus.
II. THE REWARD. It is good — good in every way: good for our happiness; good for our holiness; good for our eternal interests; good for our usefulness; good for our Master's glory.
