I've seen the Sun Stand Still!
All for the glory of God

We are depressed at our losses and excited and joyful about our worldly successes and prosperity. But when it comes to spiritual matters, how dull we feel! How heavy and hard our hearts! We can sit and hear of the infinite height, and depth, and length, and breadth of the love of God in Christ Jesus, of his giving his infinitely dear Son–and yet be cold and unmoved!
If we are going to be emotional about anything, shouldn’t it be our spiritual lives? Is anything more inspiring, more exciting, more lovable and desirable in heaven or earth than the gospel of Jesus Christ? Not only is it worthy of our emotion, but it is shown to us in a way that should affect us emotionally. In the same way, the glory and beauty of Jehovah is worthy in itself to be the object of our admiration and love, but it is demonstrated to us in a way that should shake our hearts, for it shines with the luster of an incarnate, infinitely loving, gentle, compassionate, dying Redeemer. All the virtues of the Lamb of God, His humility, patience, gentleness, submission, obedience, love, and compassion, are exhibited in the gospel so that our emotions should be deeply moved. Christ should move us more deeply than any other thing, for he is the source of our hearts’ life, and our hearts’ feelings were designed to perceive him.”
