I. A LESSON TO THOSE WHO CARRY THE SUMMONS OF GOD.
1. Let us saturate our work with prayer.
2. We must also wait upon God for direction.
3. Let us say much in praise of our Master.
II. THE SUMMONS ITSELF. Such a call as came to Rebekah is sent to every soul that hears the Gospel. In yonder azure depths lives the great Father God. He has one Son, His only-begotten and well-beloved. He has resolved to choose from amongst men those who as one Church shall constitute His bride for ever. He sends this call to you, not because you are worthy, or wealthy, or beautiful; but because He has so willed in the counsels of His own heart; and He longs that you shall be willing to detach yourself from all that you hold dear.
III. How To DEAL WITH THIS SUMMONS.
1. We must find room for it.
2. We must bear witness.
3. We must not procrastinate, or confer with flesh and blood.
(F. B. Meyer, B. A.)
