Gather my saints together to me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
1. What an expressive word — "My saints!" How the Lord appropriates them as His own! (Malachi 3:17).
2. "Gather My saints." "He shall gather the lambs in His arms." He shall "gather" them as a shepherd his sheep in the hour of weakness and danger. They shall not be weak or nervous then. The frail body shall be dropped for ever.
3. "Gather My saints together." It is the family meeting; it is the grand reunion; it is the glad assembly. We shall not rise to meet the Lord individually — in isolation; we shall be gathered together. What heart does not bound at the thought!
4. "Unto Me." What would that meeting be without Jesus? What is any meeting without Him?
(F. Whitfield, M. A.)
