THE BRITISH PULPIT.

GOD IN COVENANT WITH HIS PEOPLE.

REV. 3. HAMBLETON, A.M.
CHAPEL OP EASE, HOLLOWAY, TRINITY SUNDAY, 183

“For this God is our God for ever and ever : he will be our guide even unto death.”

PSALM, xlviii. 14.

We thank God to-day for “ giving us grace to make confession of a true faith." In that faith we acknowledge the glory of the Eternal Trinity, the Triune Jehovah, three persons and one God. In the same faith we pray to be kept “steadfast,” looking to this Triune God to “defend us evermore from all the adversities" to which the profession of our faith may expose us.

Now, Is this a Scriptural faith? is a most important question. Are we worshipping the true God, or, like the Athenians of old, have we raised an altar “ to the unknown God?" These questions I propose that we consider in a very practical way.

Our text shall lead our thoughts. “ This God is our God for ever and ever.” Who is this God? How is he our portion? Then, secondly, what may we consistently expect from him? « This is our God: he will be our guide even unto death.” These are our two points : in considering which, may our God aid us with his effectual blessing.

We will consider: first, who is this God whom WE CALL OUR GOD.

There is great emphasis in the expression: “For this God is our God;" as if pointing to the true God in distinction from all false gods. We may partly gather from the Psalm itself, who is this God. This God is he, who (in the first verse of the Psalm) is called Jehovah, “the Lord, great and greatly to be praised in the city of our God." This is “ the great King," (as the second verse calls him,) who chose Zion of old as the site of his favoured city. This God is he who was once “ known in her palaces” as a sure refuge. This Goa
