A SERMON FOR SUNDA
AN ELOQUENT DISCOURSE ENTITLE[
"THE SECRET OF HIS PRESENCE."
Te Rev. Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman Delii
era an Instructive Message Suggeste
by Oe of the Most Beautiful Expres
sions in the Eilble.
NEW YORK CITY--The distinguishe
evangelist, the tev. Dr. J. Wilbur Chaf
man has never delivered a more eloquen
and convincing me.sage than is containe,
in the following scrion. entitled. "Th
Secret of His P1esen.e." It was preache
from the text: "lIe that dwelleth in th
secret place of the Most High shall abid
under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm &:-i.: 1.
To me this is one of the most beautift
expressions in all the Bible; beautiful b
cause it is poetie, but more than that fo
the reason that it holds up before us on
of the greatest privileges that can com
to the children of God.
There is a difference of opinion as t
who the author of the Psalms may b<

the nine preceding is well. The rule i
that all the Psalms without a name i
the title are to be ascribed to the poe
whose name is given in the nearest precec
ing title, but this rule will not ahvays hol,
good. This is the Paln quoted by th
devil when he was tempting Christ upol
the mountain, and it has ever been throc
bing with comfort for every trouble<
soul. Whoever wrote it, it is beautifu:
and all will agree that the lesson taugh
is one touching our communion with Goi
and our fellowship with .Jesus Christ.
It is very true thit all Christians d
not occupy the same position in thi
world. A1 are saved, and it is by th
same "prc..ious blood of Christ." Bu
there is so nuch more to the (hi'-ia1
life than simp:y being saved: that i
only the be'iing. The blessings her
offered are given in a very general way

that we :hali~ dwell *n the "secre. pac
of the Most High," you iould think tha
all would accept. for the promise is tha
we "shall abide under the hadow of th
Almighty." The blessings here promise
are not for P1l blievers, but only fo
those who live In close fellowship wit
God. Every child of God looks towar

aIpeace ' on whieni trial comes. D~avid fouiad
athis to be true, for ina that beautiful

in tire swret of His tabernar-le will 1He

David says th::t- if it wvere necessary God
wouijd evon put, Fm in thre "secret of
IH tabert-ele:" thiat is the same as the
IHolv or Jhu: . and who wvould not have
beeni 'afe there? Here is our "secret
Splace" again. and this is just where God
Shas given us the privilege of going. Why
should wse he disturbed if troubles are
abou.t us. and our enemies rise up to do
r2. In thre "sectret place" there is purity.
If our surroundings, were only better in
this world. our lives would be purer. It
is very easy io be god in the company of
Ssomec peopile we knowi.; they seem to draw
tout all the good in us. To lbe surrounded
by certain kinds of scenery is to he liite'd
2near Heaven; to toucha a little child pure
as the atnoels of God is to receive a bene
fdiction. Vhat could not thre presence of
God do for us if only we were all the
time cojnse~ius of it? This is just what 1
Cmay have. (lid 1 but dwell in 'the "secret
splace." Onae of the reasons which DavHl
tgives for desirinrg to dwell in thre house of
the Lord was that'"he might behod the
ebeauty 'of the Lord."
Iwish that it might be possible for me
to make plain to you as I might un
aderstanad it imyselif all the beauty that
waits us it: the "secret place." T'hink of
the gorgeousness of tire Ho~ly of Hlolies
in the ancient tabernacie. which is a
type of thiis! The wvonderful curtains and
anaginrgs of tire elace, its bhite and puirpke.
-its tine twined linen and threads of
gold. Thinkc oi the beautiful v'eil with the
~herubimr. with the embroidery' o fine
that anlgel fingers must have wrought
them, the table of pure gold hrolding. the
bread. andi thre seven-broanched "andle
stiek? Who from tire outtide looking upon
the badger-skina tent would hrave imagined
how glorious at was within? So I (10 not
think it veould he poswible to make plain
to you all that awaits you in t-he "secret
splace.' He who hats dwa'elt there wsith God
Icould no' tell Iris joy if ire had an angel's
aspeech: but thais I know. that if you will
b ut enter in and dwvell there, the very'
beauty of the place will mrake you pure,
-.and you rueember that t is only unto
a"the pure in heart" that. the vision of
God is promrsed.

lTork..-Our Highest Privilege. E
Whioever attempts to escape work~ v;:
avoids his best friend. We read the story g
of man's fall in the light of subsequent
r-evelation, only to find that work is not a sE
cvrse, but our highest privilege. The fact ir
t:it the seasons end urges us on to do ti
our best. An endless probation is simply
none at all. There is no more pathetic
lamentation in all literature than this. ti
he summer is ended and we arc not t
saed. Probation is over. The Judge en- N
tes the field andi tounts the sheaves. The
summer ever reproduces itself. They ecome t
in their annutal succesision, but each ho'ds i
its own place. This summer will be this pa
but once. Another v-ill come. but it won'tt~
be this. Nothing is ever repeated. The
second reSemlbles the first. bunt is not to
le identiid with it. Thle sun never- greets ta
te earth twice the same. Probation is a
written everywhere. - Presbyterian Jour
nal. -... b
Thle only responsibility that a man can- in
not evade in this life is the one he thinks
of least-his personal influence. Mali's
conscious influence. when he is on dress 1k
parade. wvhen he is posing to imipress those sE
around him-is wofully small. But his uin- b
conscious influence, t'ne silent, subtle ra
diation of his personality, the effect of his ~
words and acts. the trifles lie never con- t
idrs-is tremendous. Every moment of p
life he is changing to a degree the life of
the whole world. Every man has an at
nosphere which is affecting every other.
So silently and unconsciously is this in- 1o1
fluence working that man may forget that pr
it exists.-W. G. Jordan.
