“Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God” (Ps. 87:3). “City of God” is one of many biblical metaphors for the church. It expresses the safety of this community, enclosed by high walls and shut in by stout gates, and points to her exalted status as the dwelling place of God among men. What glorious things are spoken of this city? First, her unique place in the eternal love and purposes of God; second, the rights and privileges God accords to her members in the covenant of grace; third, the promises God has made to provide her with every good thing and avert from her all evil or turn it to her profit; and finally, the prophecies God has given regarding her planting and flourishing in the earth and her final glory in Christ.
