A BRILUANT SUNDAY SERMON BY
THE REV. D. H. OVERTON.
Subject: God's Obligation to Man.
Blrooklyn, N. Y.-The Rev. D::n
lel H. Overton, pastor of Greene Ave
nue Reformed Church. preached Sun
day night in the Bushwick Avenue
Reforned Church at the union ser
vices with His own congregation.
The subject was, *God's Obligation
. Man." The text was from II.
othy, i:3: "Who saved us, and called
- us with a holy calling, not according
to His ovn purpose and grace, which
was given us in Jesus Christ be ore
times eternal, but hath now been
manifested by the appearing of our
Saviour Jesus. Christ." Mr. Over
There is the law of God and there
is the gospel of God. Often have I
spoken of the law of God, now I
would speak of the gospel of law.
The law of God may be defined as
aat which ..xp:-s -d man's obliga
tion to God. z.nd the gospel of God
as that which expresses God's obliga
tion to man. The Old Testament and
the New T :tament unite . in this,
that they give not only the law of
God, but the gospel of God. It is
this fact that makes the Hebrew re
ligion and the Christian religion dif
ferent from all the other religions
of the world. Many other religions
give directly or indirectly the law of
God, but nor - of them gives the gos
pel of God e - thus defined as the
obligation of God to man. The go,.s
of the heathen nations round a-out
the Hebrew nation were of suca a
nature that they must )e appeared
and pleased ly worship and sacrifice
on thp part of man or they would
torment and crush man. The la-.r
of the gods must be obeyed, but only
that man might escape the punish-,
ment of the gods, and not from any
particular love of man for the gods.
It is strange how this heathen con
ception of the gods has crept into the
thought of so many about the
true and living God. He, too, in
the thought of many, - is a God
that must be appeased and pleased
by worship and sacrifice - or He
will punish and torment and
- crush men. Men must obey the laws
of God or perish by them. This is,
of course, true as far as it goes. "Tae
-soul that sinneth, it shall die." Men
cannot sin with impunity. Man is
responsible to God, and under obli
gations to Him to keep His law and do
Hiswill. We must never forget this, nor
get far away from this in our thought
of God. But we must not stop with
this thought. If we .do we will have
only a partial view of God-we will
have only a heathen god.
And if we have only :- partial God
or a heathen go-!, then -e shall have
only a partial or a heathen religion.
If fear is our only motive in religion
or worship, then our religion and
b worship will be for the purpose of
escapiug the wrath of an angry God,
and it will find expression in our
attempts to appease and please
an angry God by propitiations and
atonements, and sacrifices, and
servile obedience to His laws. We
must rise above fear, and even above
the thoughts of future rewards, to
love, and to the thought of loving,
loyal service, and present rewards
in doing something to hasten the
*coming of God's kingdom upon the
*earth. We must rise above the ob
* ligat-on of man to God, as expressed
by law, and think of the obligation
of God to man as expressed by
love and the gospel of love. We
-. must think of the gospel of .God
, well as of th- law of God. This
'will not belittle our respect for the
law of God, nor in any way lower
our sense of obligation to Him.
Daniel Webster, when asked what
was ,ti- - greatest :hought that ever
entered his mind, replied, you re
member, that it was the thought of
man's responsibility to God. That
-certainly is a great thought, and yet
the one I bring you to-day is greater.
God's obligation to man is, I believe,
the greatest thought that can enter
* the mind of men.
This thought of God's obligation to
man is newer than the thought of
man's obligation to God. It may
be new to many of you who are h re
to-day. There are some, I expect,
who will den that God is under any
obligation to me whatsoever, and
some of you may be araong that num
ber, but I believe that the thought is
true, even . if it Is new, and that is
why I proclaim it to you to-day.
God's obligation to man is the great
gospel of God to man. The gospel is
good newe, and what bc.ter news is
there in all the world for man than
this-that God, the God of infinite
love and Fatherhood, is under ob
ligations to him? Let us see if this
is a fact, and if we find it so, let that
fact rest in our minds and bless our
First, look at our human relation
ships for proof of the fact. Children
have obligations to their parents,
but parents have obligatIons to their
children also. My boys are under
obligations to me, but I am under
obligations to my boys E.lso. Why?
Biecause I am their father, with a
father's heart and a father's inter
est. I cannot leave them to perish
until all my fatherly resources are
exhausted for their good. So God,
by becoming the F'atber of the hu
p~an family, has ple~ced F'imself un
der obligation to the whole humr~n
family. The yezy- meaning of the
.waid religion implies this. Religion,
true religien, is that which bisds a
L man to God in right relationnhip.
Which is it that b'nds a man chksest
to God? Is it man's obligation to
G od, or is it God's obligatione to man?
I believe it is the latter. Close as the
,iav may bird 'nan to Gcd, love binds
him yet cbG.
Now, all tue hu'nan l'hation
shins Involve obligations on both
si~es, and from both parties to
The relationship. God has always
acknowledged His obligation to
man, even if man has not always
acknowledged his obligation to God.
What is a covenant but an obliga
tion on the part of two gr more peo
ple? God has made many coyenants
with indivi-'uals and with His chosen
people. He made covenants with
Abel, Ncah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Mose, Elijah, Elisha, David and
with many others that we might :nen
tion. He made covenants with the
ution of Israel and of J--dah again
and again. These covenants implied
the obligation of God to man, as well
as man's obligation to God, else they
would not have been covenants, but
simply laws. These covenants are the
gospel of the Ol~d Testament and of
the Hebrew religion. This gos-el
of God's obl.gation to man unites the
Old and New 'staments as one book~
and as the book of one '-ne religior,
and the revelation of one great gos
pel, the gosnel of God as a
covenant mo2ing and a covenir-nt
keeping God, loving man and
do for man's salvation. Says Dr.
Abbott: "The Old testament is the
gospel of the obligation of God to
man in the bud: the New Testament
is the gospel of God'z obligation to
man ii the flower."
There iF no doubt. I think. about
the fa-t of God's obligation to man.
It is really t'ie central fact of the Old
and New Testament alike. It 's the
very gospel of GoI in His great book
from beginning to end, if oaly e
interpret that book aright!
Eut before we boast of that ,os
pel. or pride ourselves that God is
under obligatifns to us, let us seek
to know the ground or that obliga
tion. Let us know that we have not
put God under an;- obligation to us
by anything we have done. "Not
according to our works, but according
to His own purpose and grace," Paul
says in the text. It is therefore God's
own purpose and active love, for
grace is love in action, that has put
God under obligation to man. "God so
loved"-and there it all began-this
gospel of God's obligation to man.
God so loved that He voluntarily and
out of His great love, and for no
other reason, placed Himself under
obligation to the whole world of hu
manity, so that whosoever in that
world would believe in that love, and
would let God fulfil His obligation
toward him, should xot perish, but
be saved. This is John ii:16, in t'e
light of our text and in the words of
our theme. This is the gospel that
Jesus Christ came to proclaim and to
live. He came to tell every man that
God so .loves him that He is willing
to place Himself under obligations to
him. It was for this reason that God.
gave us His greatest gift-the gift of
Himself in Jesus Christ-as much of
Himself and even more than man
would or could comprehend and be
lieve in. It is because He is the,
great loving universal Father -at
He has placed Himself under obliga
tion to every child of His, to every
man and vromar in all the world.
Be this our boast then: not that
we have put -God under any obliga
tion to us by anything that we have
done, but that God out of His infinite
love for us, and according to His own
loving ..nd eternal purpose has placed
Himself under obligations to us. This
purpose was given us in Jcsus Christ,
"before times eternal," Paul says.
That is, it was born in God's eternal
Father-Heart before time came to be
reckoned or counted. God ever a
Father must ever have had a Son,
else He would not have been ever a.
Father, and in that love for that eter
nal Son we see God's purpose for all
His sons in all the world. And this
purpose has now been manifested to
the world and to us by the appear
ing of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
That is, Christ came to show God's,
the Father's. eternal purpose to the
world. He came to tell the world
that He has been willing to place
Himself under obligation to every
one in all th.e world. This is the gos
el that Christ came to proclaim.
This is the gospel that shines forth
in all that He said or did.
And now we are ready to see what
this obligation of God to us and His
ternal purpose, has led Him to do
for us, or the result of His obligation
to man. What is the issue of this
gospel of God's obligation? What
has it led God to do for us? It has
led and it will lead God to do every
thing .that infinite love can do or
that we will let Him do for our sal
vation. The first part of the text
gives this answer: "Who saved us,
and called us with a holy calling."
He has called us to salvation and to
holiness through faith in- Him, as the
loving Father, and in His Son, as the
revealer and example of the Father's
love and character. This Is the cov
enant that God waIts and wants 5>
make with every one of us. It is not
His will that any should perish, but
that all should receive the light of
life, a;nd live the life that is abun
dant atnd eternal. It was God's obli
gatior. to us, born of His love for us,
tat led Him to send Christ to suffer
and die for us, in order that He might
becore our Saviour and lead us to.
salvation and to holiness. It was
this that led God to do the very best
that He out of His infinite power and
love could do for us and for all of
His chaildren of the earth. Ah, yes,
we may be sure of this-God has
kept, and God will ever keep, His
part of the covenant that He has
made with us and for us. He has
fulfilled and He ever will fulfil, His
full obligation to us.
This is the gospel of the Old and
New Testament that I proclaim to
you to-day. Thi- is the gospel of
Jesus Christ-the gospel of God's
obligtion to man born of God's great
love for man.
The Sinfulness of Sin.
Unhappily that "secularization of
morals." which the late Herbert
Spencer prociaimed to be imperative
ly necessary, has already made some
progress. The tendency to minimize
sin-by characterizing"it, not as a
personal crime 'against God, but
rather as "indiscretion," a "disease,"
or as the inevitable result of "hered
ity" in irresponsible persons--Is de
veloping in quarters -where there
ougt to be clearer and more accur
ate views of life. There can be no
successful sin." It may be hidden
from man, and only from man, but
in the divine order its inevitable re
ult is death' (Rom. 6:23), und no
preacher can be true to his Mastei
who fails to declare that immutabl4
truth.-! ondon Christian.
