Like a Pilgrim, I ponder my journey; I look at the beauty Yeshua created as the narrow path. Recognizing few will view this spiritual splendour as they walk a different path by choice. What comes to mind and must be considered and remembered is those walking righteously in Yeshua’s light are adopted into the family of Israel, and the covenant offered to them. 

The thought which comes to mind is best described in Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of God. 

That even when they were not under the direction and correction of the word of God, yet they might have known, and should have known, to do better by the works of God, Acts 14:17.

Though the Gentiles had not the statutes and judgments that the Jews had to witness for God against all pretenders, notables of testimony or tabernacle of testimony, yet he left not himself without a witness besides the witness for God within them (the dictates of natural conscience), they had witnesses for God round about them–the bounty of common providence. Their having no scriptures did in part excuse them, and therefore God did not destroy them for their idolatry, as he did the Jewish nation. 

The sovereignty of God should engage, and his all-sufficiency encourage our attendance on him and our expectations from home at all times. Here is the duty we are called to:

1). to praise the Lord, to praise his name, praise home, and again praise him. We must not only thank him for what he has done for us but praise him for what he is in himself and has done for others; take all occasions to speak well of God and to give his truths and ways a good word. 

2). Those who have the most reason to praise God who is admitted to his house’s privileges and those who see most reason who there behold his beauty and taste his bounty from them are expected, for to that end they enjoy their places. Who should praise him if they do not?

3). Because of the peculiar priveledges of God’s people (Psalms 135:4): The Lord hath chosen Jacob to Himself, and therefore Jacob is bound to praise him; therefore, God chose a people to himself that they might be unto him for a name and a praise. (Jeremiah 13:11), and therefore Jacob has abundant matter for praise, being thus dignified and distinguished.

Israel is God’s peculiar treasure above all people (Exodus 19:5); they are his Segullaha people appropriated to him, and that he has delight in, precious in his sight and honourableFor this distinguishing surprising favour, if Jacob’s seed does not praise him, they are the most unworthy ungrateful people under the sun.

Those that have an acquaintance with Yeshua themselves should do all they can to bring others to be acquainted with him. Paul relates; But what things were gain to me those have I counted loss for Yeshua. (Philippians 3:7)

Those things he had counted gain while he was a Pharisee, and which he had before reckoned up, these he counted loss for Yeshua. “I should have reckoned myself an unspeakable loser of, to adhere to them, had I lost my interest in Yeshua.” 

He counted them loss not only insufficient to enrich him but also what would certainly impoverish and ruin him, if he trusted them, in opposition to Yeshua. Paul did not persuade any to do anything he had not done himself, nor venture on any bottom, but what he himself had ventured his immortal soul upon. “Yea doubtless and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus Christ) my Lord (Philippians 3:8). 

He had suffered the loss of all for the privileges of a Christian. Nay, he not only counted them loss but the vilest refuse, offals thrown to dogs; not only less valuable than Christ but in the highest degree contemptible, when set up as against him.
True knowledge of Yeshua alters and changes men, their judgments and manners, and makes them as if made again anew. The believer prefers Christ, knowing that we should be without all worldly riches than without Christ and his word. 
We are undone, without righteousness wherein to appear before God, for we are guilty. There is a righteousness provided for us in Yeshua (Jesus Christ), and it is a complete and perfect righteousness.
None can have benefited by it, who trust in themselves. Faith is the appointed means of applying for the saving benefit. It is by faith in Christ’s blood. We are made conformable to Christ’s death, when we die to sin, as he died for sin, and the world is crucified to us, and we to the world, by the cross of Christ.
The apostle was willing to do or to suffer anything to attain the glorious resurrection of saints. This hope and prospect carried him through all difficulties in his work. He did not hope to attain it through his own merit and righteousness but through the merit and righteousness of Jesus Christ. 
Our Lord prayed as a man, and as the Mediator of his people; yet he spoke with majesty and authority, as one with and equal to the Father. Eternal life could not be given to believers unless Christ, their Surety, both glorified the Father and was glorified of him.
This is the sinner’s way to eternal life, and when this knowledge shall be made perfect, holiness and happiness will be fully enjoyed. The holiness and happiness of the redeemed are especially, the glory of Christ, and of his Father, which was the joy set before him, for which he endured the cross and despised the shame; this glory was the end of the sorrow of his soul, and in obtaining it he was delighted. Thus we are taught that our glorifying God is needed as evidence of our interest in Christ, through whom eternal life is God’s free gift. 
Christ does not pray that they might be rich and great in the world, but that they might be kept from sin, strengthened for their duty, and brought safely to heaven.
The prosperity of the soul is the best prosperity. He pleaded with his holy Father, that he would keep them by his power and for his glory, that they might be united in affection and labours, even according to the union of the Father and the Son.
He did not pray that his disciples should be removed out of the world, that they might escape the rage of men, for they had a great work to do for the glory of God, and the benefit of mankind. But he prayed that the Father would keep them from the evil, from being corrupted by the world, the remains of sin in their hearts, and from the power and craft of Satan.
So that they might pass through the world as through an enemy’s country, as he had done. They are not left here to pursue the same objects as the men around them, but to glorify God, and to serve their generation. The Spirit of God in true Believers is opposed to the spirit of the world.
