2.2.36 Thank God for Sweet Communion with Him in Holy Ordinances

2.2.36

For sweet communion with God in holy ordinances, and the communications of his favor.

We have feasted on the abundance of your house, and you have given us drink from the river of your delights: for with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 36:8-9(ESV)

You have brought us to your holy mountain, and made us joyful in your house of prayer; Isaiah 56:7(ESV) and we have found for us it is good to be near God. Psalm 73:28(ESV)

We have reason to say that a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere, and that it is better to be a doorkeeper in the house of our God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness; for the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor, and no good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly: O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you! Psalm 84:10-12(ESV)

We have sat down under your shadow with delight, and your fruit has been sweet to our taste; you have brought us to the banqueting house, and your banner over us has been love. Song of Solomon 2:3-4(ESV)
