the Lord our portion

Be persuaded, that God in Christ is the only good. Seek the discovery of the glory of God in Christ. Persons may harangue ever so long about the world’s emptiness and vanity; but they will never part with it until they get something better in the place of it. Something the man must have to set his heart upon. 

Therefore, until the unsearchable riches of Christ are revealed to the soul, so as your soul’s desire run out after him — the husks of the world will be your portion. 

People may think it is their principle, that the world is but vanity; yet still they are taken up with the vanity thereof, until they see the glory of God. The Lord is a full and sufficient good — he is a proportionate good, suiting the soul: he is an everlasting good, suiting the immortal soul.

-Ralph Erskine
