Spurgeon: Go where your desires have already gone


I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the 
Lord!”

Psalm 122:1

Charles H. Spurgeon, in  “The Treasury of David”

Good children are pleased to go home, and glad to hear their brothers and sisters call them thither. David’s heart was in the worship of God, and he was delighted when he found others inviting him to go where his desires had already gone: it helps the ardour of the most ardent to hear others inviting them to a holy duty. The word was not “go, “but let us go”; hence the ear of the Psalmist found a double joy in it.
