Samuel Rutherford: “Up Your Heart!”

Think ye it a small honor to stand before the throne of God and the Lamb? and to be clothed in white, and to be called to the marriage supper of the Lamb? and to be led to the fountain of living waters, and to come to the Well-head, even God Himself, and get your fill of the clear, cold, sweet, refreshing water of life, the King’s own well? and to put up your own sinful hand to the tree of life and take down and eat the sweetest apple in all God’s heavenly paradise, Jesus Christ, your life and your Lord? Up your heart! shout for joy! Your King is coming to fetch you to His Father’s house.
(Rutherford 1951)
